WILL EVANS TRIO
Hailing from the Atlantic coastline of Rhode Island, Will Evans has spent the last decade as the frontman for the New England-based Roots Rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Having amassed 50+ million streams on Pandora & Spotify, and having traveled the U.S. & Europe several times over, in early 2023, he released his fifth solo album “After The Burnt Out Sun” that features contributions by Trevor Hall, and appearanes by Bobby Alu, and Chali 2na (Jurassic 5, Slightly Stoopid).
Showcasing his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, Evans displays technical mastery of live-looping in his shows that include the didgeridoo, ‘hand pan’ drum, percussive beatboxing, acoustic guitar, and layers of soulful vocals.
His 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. The album features deeply personal topics of humanity, compassion, and a reflection of the current political times.
In the past, Evans toured extensively with friend, mentor, and fellow conscious-roots musician Trevor Hall, performing for sold-out crowds across North America and Europe.
ENVIRONMENT, HOPE, AND INCLUSION
A lifelong surfer and environmentalist, Evans’ songs speak to the importance of connecting with—and protecting—the earth. At a time when so many are looking for words of inspiration and reassurance, his songs deliver messages of family, love, hope, and inclusion.
Will Evans has shared the stage with many top artists, including Crosby & Nash, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Rusted Root, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, Donavon Frankenreiter, Six60, Ryan Montbleau, Railroad Earth, and members of Dispatch.
