Andy May - Cafe' Americana

Andy May – “Café Americana”



Andy May dishes up comfort food for the soul with his 2005 release, Café Americana. Containing 14 new original songs, Café Americana continues Andy’s tradition of CDs packed with enjoyable songs that have depth, heart, and (often) a sense of humor, and are presented with excellent musicianship and beautiful, clean production. Solidly Americana, this CD lays out a smorgasbord of country, bluegrass, and folk-flavored acoustic treats cooked up and served by a seasoned performer and his five-star band.

Andy May - Endless Possibilities - cover

Walnut Valley Festival: “Endless Possibilities” by Andy May

…Top notch instrumentation …by Andy as well as a cast including some of Nashville’s first call musicians…. My favorite of all the tracks had to be the title cut, “Endless Possibilities.” …The song is as smooth as a gentle summer breeze.   Rex Flottman, Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield) program, on Endless Possibilities by Andy May

Andy May – “Endless Possibilities”

Endless Possibilities, Andy’s latest CD, is a collection of thirteen original songs — it’s quintessential Andy May.

For Endless Possibilities, Andy dug down into his songwriting catalog for some old tunes, like Noah and Curtains Made of Rain and added them to a bunch of newer pieces and songs, like Old Dog and So-‘n’-So,  written with his wife, Lauren LeCroy May. Joining Andy on these tracks are some truly great players—some of the finest on the planet— including legendary pedal steel guitarist, Hal Rugg, to whose memory the CD is dedicated.

Andy May - Blackberry Jam - Cover art

“Bluegrass Now:” “Blackberry Jam” by Andy May

…I thoroughly enjoyed this fine CD. The music is all original, well written, and fresh. Andy’s vocals are clear and clean and he is an excellent guitar player as well. One cut, “Little Bird,” I especially enjoyed features Andy playing some fine finger-style guitar with a banjo-like roll. “Blackberry Jam” is compelling, fresh music.

Andy May - Cafe' Americana

Walnut Valley Festival program: “Café Americana” by Andy May

Andy May’s grasp of what makes good listening is impeccable. Cafe’ Americana …is a great album for any collection. The CD begins with “It’s a Brand New Day” (which I’ve got programmed to play when my alarm goes off).  … It awakens a sense of the day’s possibilities.

— Paul Stamper, Walnut Valley Festival program, 2005
