Andy May – “Retroflections”


Andy and his instrumentalist wizard band-mates shine on this collection of original songs from Andy’s road warrior years. Before there was a name for Americana Music, they were making it– and here it is!

Andy May: “Retroflections” Great Vocals, Savvy Production and Earthy Guitar Work. One of the best alt-country or Americana records in years. …This guy is great. …A breath of fresh air. … Tremendous songwriting, …great guitar picking…!  More→ – The Indie Music Magazine and Radio Network

More Retroflections reviews

Retroflect:  (v.) 1. To turn or bend back on itself.  2. To think about, or reflect on, past events and the times that shaped them.

What a joy it’s been to go back and put together the recordings for this project – to revisit the times, the songs, and the music! I was fortunate to have been able to make and record this music and to work with the wonderful musicians and engineers on these tracks. – Andy
