Album Review

Andy McKee is an American acoustic guitar player, known for his unusual and innovative finger-tapping style. McKee was an independent artist who released his solo instrumental records on his own, until he unexpectedly became something of an Internet phenomenon: the video of him performing his composition "Drifting" on YouTube garnered as many as 35 million listens. Art of Motion was his first album for Candyrat Records, and collected some of his older material as well as his most well-known YouTube hits such as "Drifting" and "Rylynn," the latter of which had 17 million listens.

Art E-Motion

Very rarely does music have such an impact that it drives the listeners to tears. Its like listening to a lifetime when you hear his music. His songs are melodies of life containing a beginning, middle, and end. And if you haven't watched him play do a search on You Tube. You will be quite impressed. Andy, for inspiring my soul to transcend time and space, thank you.

Unsung hero of contemporary music.

In a time when 99% of music being produced is over-commercialized, poorly executed, and generally worthless, Andy McKee shines as a beacon for we disenchanted few who still feel there is a place for originality, heart, and wonder in the world of music. Thanks and kudos.

Best fingerstyle guitar find of the year!

Andy's music is filled with great melodies, engaging rhythms, and his performance technique is solid. Imagine combining the evocative melodic and harmonic beauty of Stephen Bennett, the soul of Michael Hedges, and the energy and innovation of Don Ross and Preston Reed. But don't let those comparisons imply that Andy is still seeking his own voice; for a young guy, and fairly new to the scene, this guy has found something distinct and exciting to say. In particular check out my personal favs "Art of Motion," "Nocturne," and "Heather's Song."
