Bluegrass Situation interviews Noah Wall (Barefoot Movement)!
What song do you wish you had written?
Someone asked me this recently, and I had a hard time giving them an answer. There are so many songs that I love with all my heart, but I don't wish I had written them, necessarily. I just feel so happy that they were written for me to enjoy. But I do wish I could write a song as good as "I Hear Them All" by Dave Rawlings or Old Crow Medicine Show. I love the simplicity of the music and depth of the words.
If money were no object, where would you live and what would you do?
I'd pretty much do the same things I'm doing now; I'd just do them a little better! All I want to do is write music and play shows. If I had plenty of money, I might plan my tour schedule a little differently. Right now, it's a pretty constant thing and it can be hard to stay grounded (and healthy!) when you are always traveling. People say do it while you're young, but the harder you go, the faster you age, so I feel like it evens out. Also, I used to do a lot of theater and I absolutely loved it. One day, I'd like to have the freedom to do that again somehow.
If the After-Life exists, what song will be playing when you arrive?
Whenever I hear the harmonies at the end of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York," it makes me feel pretty heavenly.
