The organic band Barefoot Truth has been making inroads to the music industry for 3 years now. Singer/songwriter Will Benoit and innovative lead guitarist Jay Driscoll met randomly in the summer of 2004. Initial gigs found them relaxed and barefoot before their beach going audiences. Their subsequent name "Barefoot" was later altered due to an existing pop band. As "Barefoot Truth" their title captures both the breeze and the intent of their music.
In 2006 the duo became infused with a dynamic energy of jazz trained bassist Andy Wrba. Onstage, BFT's original compositions are performed with an eclectic array of instruments such as congas, didgeridoo, stomp box, dobro, and upright bass. Star quality lead vocalist, Will Benoit can be found singing behind his drum kit or with guitar in hand. BFT also adds the unique element of harmonica player Garrett Duffy.
Between their acoustic melodies and rocking full band sound, BFT keeps the crowd leaning in to keep up with the direction of the flow. These songs are trips to a place where you remain in the moment. Their stories ask you to consider the joy of being alive and to pick up your end of the thread that binds us all together.
BFT's latest album "Walk Softly" brings the evolutionary band to yet another level. Produced by Jack Gauthier, it arrives at that place towards which their combined talents and creativity has been steadily moving. Its refined cross-generational appeal invites you to hold on by letting go and remember to take your soul outside to play.
