Will Evans & Rising Tide (from Barefoot Truth)
Will Evans has spent the past decade as the front man for the roots/rock outfit Barefoot Truth. He recorded four full-length albums and several EPs of his original music with the band. Barefoot Truth’s release, Carry Us On, debuted at no. 10 on the iTunes Rock Chart, and the band has surpassed 20 million plays on Spotify. With the band playing limited shows each year, Evans has opened a new chapter in his musical journey with Will Evans & Rising Tide. The band features several members of Barefoot Truth, along with Evans’s didgeridoo and advanced looping skills. Fans can expect to be out of their seats and dancing for this high-energy performance.
Evans’s first solo release, Wishin’ Well, was named Bullseye of the Week by Entertainment Weekly and ranked no. 4 on the Northeast Billboards. His entry into Guitar Center’s Next Great American Songwriter contest brought him national attention. Out of more than 10,000 entrants, he was chosen as one of the nation’s top finalists.
In October 2015, while on a national tour supporting Trevor Hall, Evans released his sophomore solo album, Signal Flares. With topics such as the album’s opener “Do It for the Love” and “To Be Human,” the singer-songwriter once again spoke from his heart, advocating his socially conscious messages of love and inclusion. His third full-length album, RISE, is due to be released fall 2018. Evans has shared the stage with many top artists, including Crosby & Nash, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Rusted Root, and Donavon Frankenreiter.
