Carbon Leaf
Carbon Leaf
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.

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.

The band’s music incorporates acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and vocal harmony.

2017 will be another intense year of writing and recording for Carbon Leaf, with a U.S. tour planned behind the collection of new songs.
Will Evans
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. Evan's has shared the stage with the likes of Crosby and Nash, Bruce Hornsby, Grace Potter, State Radio, Ray Lamontagne, The Levon Helm Band, Wilco and Rusted Root to name a few. Recently Barefoot Truth has decided to take an extended hiatus, which has led Will to a new chapter in his musical journey. Will's recently released solo album "Wishin' Well" earned him a #4 debut on the Northeast Billboard charts, and sold out shows across New England is a testament that folks are digging the new sound. 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 among others.
