The Barefoot Movement Celebrates New ‘Rise & Fly’ EP Release With Recent Features on CMT, Country Rebel, The Bluegrass Situation, Digital Journal and More
The wait is finally over, as rising band The Barefoot Movement releases their brand new EP, Rise & Fly. Released via Bonfire Music Group, the collection includes five new recordings from the singer/songwriters, which displays their highly energetic sound that has turned many heads in Americana, Folk and Bluegrass circles.
When choosing the name of the EP, the band went with the inspiration “rise and fly,” a line that is repeated throughout their lead single “Early In The Morning,” which “captured very simply the theme of the whole project,” says The Barefoot Movement’s Noah Wall. “Not only in that we’re bringing traditional stuff back to life, but also in that it’s been so long since we’ve had a new release of original material it feels very much like rising from the ground up and letting these tunes finally take flight.”
The lead single from Rise & Fly came in the form of “Early In The Morning,” which is a remake of a traditional recording. “Influenced by Americana, bluegrass, roots, and rock, the band brings an energetic edge to the classic tune,” proclaims CMT. The group unveiled the official video for the song a couple of weeks ago exclusively on Country Rebel, where fans were given a first-hand example of the Movement’s performance capabilities (watch it on this page, click “play” below). The Bluegrass Situation also gave fans an exclusive song premiere earlier this week with the track, “At The End of the Day”
The Barefoot Movement has kicked their promotional efforts into high gear for the new EP release. Earlier this week, they appeared on the world-famous WSM 650-AM, where they talked about the new record, along with what inspired it. On Wednesday, they headlined the legendary Station Inn venue, located in Nashville. During the event, the band performed every song from the new project to a jam-packed audience. Looking forward, there are plenty more opportunities to hear from the band, as they’ll be performing on WMOT’s Finally Friday show next week as well (February 14).
