Andy Evans begins his Miracle with a brief introduction before moving into the eponymous track. The soulful rock that Evans creates here links together John Mayer, Rob Thomas, and Jack Johnson. This track is single-worthy as Evans crafts a dense instrumentation that will stick with listeners long after the track has concluded. A Santana-esque guitar solo adds a sizzle to the track, keeping listeners on the edges of their seats.
Lesson Learned is a crossover track that has Evans take up hints of soul, rock, and country in a bold, unique fashion. The track’s instrumentation ebbs and flows with Evans’ vocals representing the one constant. The narrative quality of this track will have fans following every word. Shape Of Love is our favorite track on Miracle; the vocal range of Evans during this track is fantastic. The jazzy brass and funk that make their way onto this track gives listeners a little bit of the bayou, while Evans’ sultry vocals link this cut to the rest of the tracks on Miracles. A ropy bass line is threaded through this track, a move that adds further depth to this complex composition.
I Wish She Was Mine slows things down and has Evans express a profound sense of loss that can be understood by anyone that has experienced unrequited (or forbidden) love. Miracle is the rare example of a full-length album that stays strong from beginning to end. Andy Evans continually adds to his repertoire with the twists and turns that one will experience on Miracle, making for an album that stands up to a number of spins.
