Deep Blue is Evan’s first foray into using two acoustic guitars at once on a piece – the melodies on this track overlap together in style, creating an eerie and evocative vibe. It sounds very beautiful, in a haunting way, and I found myself unable to stop listening to the piece. Evan is obviously very skilled at his guitar playing – even if you’re not normally into instrumental music, I recommend checking this song out!
