Barefoot Truth Releases New Rock and Roots CD Carry Us On 9/6

Barefoot Truth have confirmed the September 6, 2011 release of their new CD, "Carry Us On," which features a collection of exciting, soulful and incredibly engaging music. The groundbreaking first video, for the track ‘Roll If You Fall', is sure to become a viral hit - filmed in a New Hampshire wind tunnel, the band takes to the air in vertical winds of up to 160 miles an hour at their irreverent, high-flyin' best to promote one of the most accessible songs on the album.

Hailing from Mystic, Connecticut, Barefoot Truth's compelling live performances have earned them recognition from their fans as "a musical force of nature". The band has shared the stage with such legends such as Crosby and Nash, Bruce Hornsby and Bela Fleck, as well as with Boston-based trio State Radio.

Highlights of "Carry Us On" include the powerful track ‘The Ocean', the instantly memorable ‘Rope' and ‘Reelin', and the understated vibe of ‘Misled' and ‘Reach' -- the band shows tremendous growth as songwriters and performers, and will soon hit the road on a major U.S. tour - itinerary follows, with European dates planned in the spring of 2012.

The buzz and momentum resulting from Barefoot Truth's 2010 breakthrough CD, "Threads" -- hailed as "the best independently released CD of 2010" with a debut at #21 on iTunes' Rock Chart -- has continued to grow in anticipation of the new CD release. "Carry Us On" is now available on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon mp3, Rhapsody, Emusic, MusicMatch, Spotify and other digital music outlets and platforms. Physical CDs can be purchased through the band's website.

The New England based five-piece band has evolved from local heroes to national stars with the EXPRESS (A publication of THE WASHINGTON POST,) saying, "Barefoot Truth brings socially conscious lyrics, an embracement of a universal consciousness and a deep desire to change the world through righteous string-heavy tunes." The band has nabbed an extraordinary eight million spins on the internet's wildly popular Pandora Radio, which boasts 80 million users. In an interview with USA Today about the band's spiraling success, Barefoot Truth guitarist Jay Driscoll said, "Pandora has created an avenue for us in music. All of a sudden people we had never met before were buying our music online and asking us to play in their cities."

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. 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 irresistible, their songs are hook-heavy, and their youthful energy is known for converting a wide demographic of listeners into new fans. Here is a behind the scenes video of the band recording the single, "Worth":
