I love your new album! Well written. Well sung. Solid heartfelt songs. Well played and well produced! I’m recommending it every chance I get! … Well done my old friend! —Gary McMahan on Room for Roots byAndy May
Andy May is a soft-spoken man who calls children “youngsters” and adults “folks.” His talent as a musician and teacher is undisputed, but he’s likely best known as the founder of the Acoustic Kids Showcase. The showcase is a non-competitive “Opry-style” performance program that allows musicians  and younger to perform on professional stages at festivals around the country.
There are plenty of fine songs on 2016’s “Room for Roots,” and “Haggard and the Queen” feels like a natural for our Sokol Heroes radio show on WRSI, focusing on artists with roots and connections to Western MA. It’s catchy, heartfelt, and tells an engaging true story…. —David Sokol on Room for Roots byAndy May
From the colorful images of “Life’s a Gig” to the feelings of desperation and triumph in “The Woman in the Wings” you can feel the salt of life in his songs…. Really, few active songwriters can grab a listener with small-town stories and sharply cut images like Andy May. Grab a listen to “Stone Soup from Hard Times (Featuring Maura O’Connell)” or “The Harvest” and “My Small Town”. The characters in his songs are everybody’s friends, neighbors and relatives. The production and engineering are exceptional as is the musicianship of everyone involved. Andy deftly employs just the right combination of words against the backing of solid Americana-folk to paint pictures of tricky relationships, the power of nostalgia, the experience of growing set in one’s ways, and lessons learned the hard way. —Rick Jamm, JamSphere, The Indie Music Magazine & Radio Network , on Room for Roots byAndy May
Andy May is a driven singer and songwriter with a warm and personal approach to his rootsy blend of folk and Americana. His latest studio effort, Room For Roots immediately strikes for Andy’s gripping vocal performances: his voice sounds wise and seasoned, yet youthful and energetic, creating a beautiful dualism. I immediately feel like I am sitting in a room listening to the amazing stories of an old friend who jut came back to town after traveling the world and collecting incredible tales of people, places, songs and ideas – and he tells the stories so well you almost feel as if you were there. —The Band Camp Diaries on Room for Roots byAndy May
