Americana pioneer Andy May combines acoustic/alternative country, bluegrass, folk, blues and rock influences with his trademark optimism touched with humor. Blackberry Jam also features Andy’s clean, lively production and some of Nashville’s best players.
…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. — JP, Bluegrass Now [more]
The first Swift River Music CD release of Andy May, MaySongs contains 15 original Andy May songs– several co-written with his wife, Lauren. The CD has a contemporary acoustic feel, with shades of rock, country, folk and bluegrass.
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.
…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
