Will Evans BIO
Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary songwriter, drummer, and front man for the roots rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Will recorded four full length albums and several EP’s of his original music with the band. Their most recent release, “Carry Us On”, debuted at #10 on the iTunes Rock Chart, and as of 2018, the band has surpassed over 20 million plays on Spotify. With Barefoot Truth on an extended hiatus, Will has opened a new chapter in his musical journey.
His first solo release “Wishin’ Well” landed him in Entertainment Weekly as being right on target in the “Bullseye of The Week” and warranted a #4 spot on the Northeast Billboards. Will’s entry into Guitar Center’s “Next Great American Songwriter” contest brought him national attention. Out of over 10,000 entrants, he was chosen as one of the nation’s top ten finalists. In 2017, in the “Next2Rock” contest, once again he placed in the top 5 nationally out of tens of thousands.
In October of 2015, while on a national tour supporting to Trevor Hall, Will released his sophomore album, “Signal Flares”. With topics such as the album’s opener “Do It For The Love”, and “To Be Human”, the singer-songwriter is once again speaking from his heart, advocating his own socially-conscious messages of love and inclusion.
In his live performances, Will uses his impressive looping skills to combine his drumming background with his highly energized and entertaining acoustic style. When Will is on stage, the crowds always get to their feet and he always gets to their hearts. Will has shared the stage with many top artists including Crosby and Nash, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Rusted Root, Trevor Hall, Nahko, Xavier Rudd, Donavon Frankenreiter, Railroad Earth and members of Dispatch.
You can catch Will on the road this summer as a touring band member for good friend and acclaimed artist Trevor Hall, as well as various solo and headline dates as Will Evans & Rising Tide.
