Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary songwriter, drummer, and front man for the Roots Rock outfit Barefoot Truth. The band released four full-length albums and has surpassed over 20 million plays on Spotify.
With BFT on an extended hiatus, Will has opened a new chapter in his musical journey. In 2018, Will joined his good friend Trevor Hall as a member of his touring band. Together they have performed extensively to passionate crowds across North America and Europe.
On Election Day in November 2018, Will released his third full-length solo album “RISE”. His deepest and most personal album to date, songs contain topics of humanity, compassion, and a reflection of the current political times. In a time when many are looking for words of inspiration and reassurance, the singer-songwriter is once again speaking from his heart, advocating his own brand of socially-conscious messages of love and inclusion. A lifelong surfer, songs also speak to the importance of connecting with and protecting the earth and environment. The album features guest appearances by Trevor Hall, Mihali of Twiddle, and more.
In his live performances, Will uses his impressive looping skills to combine his drumming background with his highly energized and entertaining acoustic style. A technical tactician on the stage, 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 him live as part of Trevor Hall’s touring band, or on many solo tours throughout the year.
