Like many of their fans, I first heard about Barefoot Truth through Pandora, the online radio that plays music based on your favorite artists. I was in the middle of my semester abroad, studying ways to preserve the Caribbean environment in the face of tourism, overfishing and climate change. I was instantly captivated by their music as well as their message of sustainability.
The New England-based band members of Barefoot Truth started playing together in college. They cite Dispatch, John Butler Trio and Dave Matthews as musical influences. I've always been curious about the social and environmental elements in their lyrics, so when I attended their most recent Boston performance, I asked them a few questions about how it all started.
