CD Review: Barefoot Truth Wants Their Popularity To "Carry On" With New Album
The album begins with the up-tempo, acoustic pop sound of “Roll If You Fall.” At times, their sound draws some similarities to Train (“The Ocean”) and other times like Jason Mraz (“Eagle Front.”) Barefoot Truth find their own groove on “Mislead” and “Reach” using simple instrumentation without overpowering the song’s thoughtful lyrics. Their brand of acoustic pop songs hits the heights on the smooth, swaying of “Rope” and the funk sounds of “Reelin.” The album finishes with the wonderfully written “Changes In The Weather” which just makes you want to hear more from this rising band.
Barefoot Truth has opened for music legends Crosby and Nash, as well as Bruce Hornsby and Bela Fleck. Their current tour began in mid-September and will run through mid-November. They recently performed at the Infinity Hall in Norfolk, CT and will return to the state on Saturday, October 29 performing at the intimate FTC Stage One in Fairfield, CT.
