With 16 albums and over 2,300 live shows spanning a 24-year career, Carbon Leaf’s independent music and spirit continue to resonate with its fans into 2017. Blending folk, Celtic, bluegrass, Americana and rock traditions into what the group calls Ether-Electrified Porch Music. The Virginia quintet’s songs of love, life, heartbreak and landscape are independently written, recorded and produced from their home studio in Richmond. The band’s music incorporates acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and vocal harmony. After 5 years of heavy touring and recording, Carbon Leaf reduced it’s 2016 road schedule to focus on some alternative projects, including the release of Nothing Rhymes With Woman, the third and final re-recorded album originally released through their formal record label in 2009. Along with completing new versions of Indian Summer (2004) and Love Loss Hope Repeat (2006), the band’s goal of regaining 100% ownership of their music catalogue was achieved.
Will Evans has spent the last decade as the primary song writer, drummer, and front man for the roots rock outfit Barefoot Truth. Will recorded four full-length albums and several EP’s of his original music with the band. Their most recent release, “Carry Us On”, debuted at #10 on the iTunes Rock Chart. With Barefoot Truth now on an extended hiatus, Will has opened a new chapter in his musical journey. His first solo release landed him in Entertainment Weekly as being right on target in the “Bullseye Of The Week” and warranted a #4 spot on the Northeast Billboards. Will’s entry into the Guitar Center sponsored “Search For The Next Great American Songwriter” also brought him national attention. Out of over 10,000 entrants, he was chosen as one of the nation’s top ten finalists.
