For a solo performer, his set is as robustly dynamic as if he performed with a full band. As a multi-instrumentalist, each instrument beautifully resonates with him as he navigates the intricacies of his music. Switching between plucking fiery rhythms on his guitar to pressing sultry sounds into his piano keys, a seated crowd often jumps to their feet & surround the stage, unable to suppress the movement their bodies desired with Escapism’s infectious music buzzing. Evan Montoya’s live performance is backed by elaborately composed tracks which he brings to life with beats he pounds out on an drum pad.
"Escapism’s latest album, side a, is a masterpiece of beautifully ambient music set to heart wrenching & thought provoking lyrical+spoken word content."
