Will discovered his love of music and singing at an early age. At family gatherings guitars were always unveiled by his uncles and cousins and the music often carried on late into the evenings. By building a makeshift drum set out of pots and pans Will found his place in the rhythm section. It wasn’t until High school that he would actually take a seat behind a real drum set. It was also around this time that he first picked up his fathers beloved guitar.
Asked about his start in music, Will explains ” After freshmen year of high school my dad taught me a few chords on his old 1973 martin D 28 acoustic guitar (sort of like the red Ryder BB guns of acoustic guitars) I was hooked. I taught myself the rest, and I’ve held that guitar hostage ever since.”
Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary song writer, and drummer/ front man of the roots rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Four full length albums and several EP’s were recorded with Barefoot Truth, including their latest release “Carry Us On” which debuted at #10 on the Itunes rock chart. Recently Barefoot Truth has decided to take an extended hiatus, which has led Will to a new chapter in his musical journey. Will’s solo project gives him an empty canvas to explore and create a new sound to share with anyone willing to lend an ear. Influences are drawn from a diverse selection of musical genres including hip hop, pop and folk rock artists such as John Butler, Lauren Hill, John Mayer, Bernhoft, and Ray Lamontagne to name a few.
