Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary songwriter and frontman for the New England based Roots Rock outfit Barefoot Truth. After four albums and 20+ million plays on Spotify, he embarked on a solo journey – and has since released three additional full-length albums, toured extensively, and comes to Rhythm & Roots with his exciting new backing band, Rising Tide.
His most recent album Rise was nominated for three categories by the New England Music Awards: Album of the Year, Roots Act of the Year, and Video of the Year (“Family Tree”). The album features deeply personal topics of humanity, compassion, and a reflection of the current political times. A lifelong surfer and environmentalist, his songs speak to the importance of connecting with and protecting the earth. At a time when many are looking for words of inspiration and reassurance, Evans delivers a collection of socially conscious songs filled with messages of love, possibility, and inclusion.
