Will Evans & Rising Tide Bio
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.
