Major Tour is Set, as Barefoot Truth Explodes on Pandora Radio, Exceeding Spins for Bob Dylan's Iconic 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door' by 1.2 Million

Relix Magazine Predicts: Band is “On The Verge"

Roots Rock band Barefoot Truth will embark on a major U.S. Tour this Fall, as they build on the tremendous growth seen in the months since their last CD, 'Threads' (hailed as “the best independently released CD of 2010") debuted at #21 on iTUNES' Rock Chart. While on tour, the band will also preview tracks from their upcoming Spring 2011 album, which they are currently working on in the studio.

The Mystic, Connecticut-based five-piece has evolved from local heroes to national stars in 2010, and is featured in the “On the Verge" section of Relix Magazine's Sept-Oct issue. In another sign of their cross-country appeal, the song “Threads" will soon be available on the Rock Band Network as a 'Rock Band' song, complete with characters and full graphics. More details will be announced soon.

Already a smash on Pandora Radio (as featured in USA TODAY,) the band's stats have exploded, with spins now exceeding mega-hits by superstars Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, Bush and others:

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."
