Barefoot consists of Dylan Fay on vocals, Dylan Heinrich and Eric Folts on guitar, Patrick Smiley on bass and Christia Aroz on Drums. “We’re just 5 music obsessed friends jamming in Tempe, AZ. We rehearse as a band several nights a week & all love different kinds of music. After playing together awhile, we eventually stumbled onto the Alternative Rock sound we have now because of our vocalists singing style and our love for the genre and bands like Incubus, Circa Survive, & Queens of the Stone Age. Also, the scene around us as we’ve been developing shaped our sound a bit, playing with bands like Katastro & Sunset Voodoo. We’re just another band trying to perfect a unique sound of our own. Our new album comes out this Thursday December 1st. We recorded the drums at Salt Mine Studios in Mesa, Arizona with our good friend and producer Matt Keller from the band Lydia. We did instruments and everything else at his home.” You can find Barefoot at The Homegrown With Mo Local Showcase May 11th at Pub Rock Live and don’t forget to check em out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
