Hailing from the Atlantic coastline of Rhode Island, Evans has spent the last decade as the frontman for the New England-based Roots Rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Having amassed 50-plus million streams on Pandora and Spotify, and having traveled the U.S. and 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 appearances by Bobby Alu, and Chali 2na.
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.
