Blending the very essence of pop and alt country, Rhode Island’s Will Evans is back with a delectable anthem entitled “Already Gone”. Reflecting on our need for validation, Evans dives deep into our desire to compare ourselves to others. Stemming from the quote “Comparison is the thief of joy”, “Already Gone” confronts our egos as we obsess over material things rather than focusing on what really matters in life. The danceable track comes paired with a vibrant music video, featuring a lady in black who represents our unrelenting passion for things that are always just barely out of reach.
“Will Evans pairs a relatable message with existential themes, overlaying a catchy pop-country melody built for the mainstream”
About Will Evans:
Four albums and 50M+ streams later, he has embarked on a solo journey, releasing three full length albums and performing for sold out crowds across the US and Europe. Showcasing his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, Evans displays technical mastery of live-looping in his shows that include the didgeridoo, ‘hand pan’ drum, percussive beatboxing, acoustic guitar, and layers of soulful vocals. His album “Rise” was nominated for three categories by the New England Music Awards: Album of the Year, Roots Act of the Year, and Video of the Year. Shortly after returning to the U.S., he recorded a full-length live album for Sugarshack Sessions and also released ‘The Summer Swell,’ a 3-song live EP, as well as a new summer-vibed single: “Lean In.”
A lifelong surfer and environmentalist, Evans’ songs speak to the importance of connecting with—and protecting—the earth. At a time when so many are looking for words of inspiration and reassurance, his songs deliver messages of family, love, hope, and inclusion. Will Evans has shared the stage with many top artists, including Crosby & Nash, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Rusted Root, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, Donavon Frankenreiter, Six60, Ryan Montbleau, Railroad Earth, and members of Dispatch.
