More about Barefoot Truth: Barefoot Truth started as an acoustic duo and has grown steadily to its current make-up as a five-piece rock/pop band. Their live shows are infectious, their songs are hook-heavy, and their youthful energy makes listeners believe that, yes, maybe each of us can indeed make a positive impact on one other and on our planet...In fact, the band says the concept behind their accalimed CD 'Threads' was nothing less than universal consciousness."
Based in Mystic, Connecticut, members of Barefoot Truth actually live together, and have done so since 2007. The band features Will Evans on drums and lead vocals, Andy Wrba on upright bass, Jay Driscoll on Weissenborn slide guitar, Garrett Duffy on harmonica, and John Waynelovich on piano.
Roots-rock band Barefoot Truth earned raves for their recent CD 'Threads,' with critics praising it as the best independently released album of 2010," a funky roots/folk album that will have you nodding your head and stamping your foot in no time," and having a diverse and exciting sound." EXPRESS (A publication of THE WASHINGTON POST) highlighted the band, saying The Revolution Will be Shoeless: Barefoot Truth defines 'earthy-rock.' Hailing from Mystic, Conn, the quintet bring socially conscious lyrics, an embracement of a 'universal consciousness' and a deep desire to change the world through righteous string-heavy tunes."
