Bio

Barefoot McCoy is an American singer-songwriter and musician based in Ohio.
His music is characterized by his poetic lyrics and distinctive instrumental work on the guitar, piano and banjo. Barefoot's genre is a unique blend of folk rock and singer-songwriter that evokes memory of yesterday and sparks hope for tomorrow.

Barefoot's writing often includes traces of his love of nature and his values in peace, truth and life. Jake was given the name "Barefoot" as an Indian name by his Kentucky friends, Rainwater (Cherokee) and Gail Roe.

Since 2015, Barefoot has performed over 800 shows in Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Indiana, New Mexico and California. In 2017, he released his fourth studio album, Back to Virginia.

“Barefoot is one of only a handful of current singer-songwriters who I consider to be a truly great lyricist. His word craft is simply outstanding… conjuring up thoughtful lines that capture the beauty, frustrations, happiness, and downright absurdity of the world we live in.”
