•≈ Raised in rural North Carolina, Noah Wall is a multi–talented performer. As a musician, actress, and radio personality, she has carved an established career from her various artistic endeavors.
•≈ Noah is the lead singer, fiddler, and founding member of the award winning acoustic band “The Barefoot Movement.” Now based in Nashville, TN, the group continues to wrack up the miles, touring both domestically and internationally. Wall’s songwriting skills can be heard in the majority of the band’s original material, which has been compiled onto three full length albums. The group’s notoriety continues to grow through features in such publications as Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, and Billboard.com. In 2014, they were presented with the Momentum Award for Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Declared “one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene” by CMT, the band is still going strong, bringing shoe–less excitement to every performance.
•≈ While The Barefoot Movement remains at the center of her musical focus, Noah has also recorded independently for the Grammy winning label Chesky Records. In 2015, she was a featured performer on the collaborative traditional folk album “From the Mountaintop.” Her work on that project lead the producers to suggest she do an album of her own! Entitled, “Down Home Blues,” Noah’s first solo record is a collection of classic American blues numbers, and is set to be released in June 2016.
•→ Her passion for performance extends into the acting realm as well. Noah grew up on the stage, starring in numerous productions such as Grease, Little Women, The Great Gatsby, A Piece of My Heart and many more. Her acting talents were noted by a critic from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, stating, “Noah Wall...is perhaps the strongest individual actress on the stage. Her beautiful singing voice worked extremely well with the music in the play and she brought a sincerity to her character that was very nice...her character development was clear and strong...she delivered [her dialogue] in a fragile and honest manner that showed the many levels of this character.” As she navigates her tour schedule, she hopes to grow as an actress and add many more credits to her growing resume. © The Barefoot Movement, from left to right Hasec Ciaccio — Stand–up Bass, Tommy Norris — Guitar, Noah Wall — Fiddle and Vocals, Quentin Acres — Mandolin.

•→ Noah has also worked professionally as a radio host and voice over talent. Most notably, she produced the popular program “Highway Companion” for the independent radio station WDVX 89.5 FM out of Knoxville, TN. For several years, she recorded and interviewed some of the most exciting performers in Americana music, many of whom she met while touring with The Barefoot Movement.
•→ Noah graduated Summa Cum Laude from East Tennessee State University, where she earned a BA in Broadcasting and a minor in Bluegrass, Old–Time and Country Music. As a member of the ETSU Old–Time Pride Band, a showcase band from the program, she had the opportunity to present traditional Appalachian music to audiences far and wide, including an appearance on the television program Song of the Mountains, and a trip across the pond for a series of dates in the Czech Republic. She was a Midway Honors Scholar, a participant in the theater program, and a staff member of the campus radio station “The Edge.”
•→ “There’s something about Noah Wall's voice that went straight to my heart, she’s the real deal!” — Steve Guttenberg, Audiophile Critic
•→ “Noah Wall’s “Down Home Blues”, is full of life and a positive energy, and the use of Binaural recording gives the music air, I felt like I was sitting down on the floor, bourbon in hand, with the band just a few feet away.” — Harris Fogel, Mac Edition Radio•→ Those that follow Chesky Records closely will recognize the voice of Noah Wall from our previous recording, From The Mountaintop. Now back with her own band, Noah Wall lets her voice shine through on this stunning example of classic Folk sensibilities with a modern twist. Down Home Blues mixes traditional Folk songs with new original material showcasing Wall’s songwriting as well as vocals. Noah is also the lead singer, fiddler, and founding member of the award winning acoustic band “The Barefoot Movement.” Now based in Nashville, TN, the group continues to rack up the miles, touring both domestically and internationally.
