Excited to share this fun little project I was involved with! It was great fun to sing the words to the children’s book “Stronger Than The Mountain,” written by Michael Bozzo and illustrated by Rebecca Li. You can stream the song on any major music platform and you can grab a copy of the book here! www.strongerthanthemountain.com
Looking forward to hitting the road for a few shows with Tommy Norris! We’ll be sharing a few shows with our good friend and amazing songwriter Ed Snodderly.
I’m excited to announce my latest audiobook narration - “Broken Blue” by LM Sorrell.
“Every year Blythe makes the same wish – to live a normal life. But despite her best efforts and countless therapy sessions, as she blows out the candles on her seventeenth birthday she suspects her wish will never come true. When the shadows that have haunted her for her entire life suddenly disappear, they simply make room for a new and even more unsettling presence: Bron. Beautiful, enigmatic Bron. Is he just another invention of her disturbed mind? Or can she believe in him?”
You can download Broken Blue for free with an Audible trial membership! Visit this link to check it out! Broken Blue on Audible

I am so pleased to announce that my first performance of an Audiobook has been released! Written by Lynette Ferreira, "Dead Girl" tells the story of "zombie girl," Genesis. Here's a brief synopsis:
"Gen is an experiment. She is the first of her kind. Her name is Genesis. They call the place where they are kept The Land of Odd, a school where, after having undergone the change, she and nine others like her will train to become the buffer between humanity and disaster - that is, if they make it through the change.
Derek de Beer releases a dangerous virus at Heathrow Airport and causes the world to slip into the dark ages with a speed that could not have been foreseen by the CDC. It is tough being away from their parents and their old friends, but when Genesis discovers the lead scientist is keeping secrets about the outside world, she must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny - with a little help from her new zombie friends."
You can purchase your audiobook from Audible, Audiobooks, Hoopla, Overdrive, and just about every audiobook seller on the web!
Better late than never, I always appreciate a good review! Thanks to Rad Bennett at SoundStageSolo.com for the nice words! Here are a few highlights:
"Throughout the album, Wall’s voice is right on the mark, with perfect intonation and diction. In fact, her enunciation is so perfect that you won’t need a lyric sheet. This may seem a small achievement, but too many singers these days depend on getting away with beautiful sounds rather than conveying the message in the words. Overall, Wall has raised the level of these carefully chosen songs to that of the art house or concert hall, while preserving their original intents."
"Down Home Blues is as good a blues record as I’ve heard. Wall’s accurate, clean, clear singing, and producer David Chesky’s accurate, clean, clear recording, make for an album that should be a must for your download or CD-buying list."

My first solo album, "Down Home Blues" from Chesky Records, has made the nominations ballot in the Traditional Blues category for next year's Grammy's! This doesn't mean I'm nominated but that I am in the running to become nominated! That's a nice compliment to be sure. We just have to hope that the Grammy voters will give it a listen!
The Barefoot Movement is busy working up new music! We also are recording a Christmas EP! We should have it out before this holiday season!! Stay tuned!
Happy Election Day!
