Since 2001, McKee has released five albums independently selling upwards of 40,000 copies. Andy also had the honor of playing guitar on Josh Groban's Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Christmas album, NOEL. Andy s new album Joyland includes 8 new original compositions, as well as an inspired take on Tears For Fears Everybody Wants to Rule the World and a cover of acoustic guitar virtuoso Michael Hedges Layover. Additionally, Joyland includes a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes interviews with Andy, performances, and instructional segments this marks the first time visual content has every been packaged with one of McKee s albums, and is sure to be a must-have for his massive online fan base!

Six stars!

I stumbled across this guy on YouTube quite by accident and was blown away. Incredible technique combined with beautiful melodies. This is the most interesting music I've heard in a long time. This guy is the Joe Satriani of acoustic guitar. If you play any stringed instrument, then you must buy this album. If you claim to love music of any kind, then you must get this album. If you don't fall in love with these songs then either you are a cyborg or you have no soul...

Recommended. Go buy right now!

I discovered Andy on youtube as many did and bought Art of Motion instantly! I recently saw him on tour where he was selling this CD/DVD before they were released and got me a signed copy. It has been great follow up material to his previous stuff. I think the only drawback might be that he has some accompaniment on a few of his songs (cello or drum rhythm) that does add to the overall song, but might take away a little from his solo guitar. What I loved about Art of Motion was listening closely to all the sound that Andy alone could produce from his guitar and adding in another instrument 'muddies' it up a little at times. It is still a good overall end result and shouldn't keep you from picking this one up.

There is also a DVD included where he tells a little about his history and shows you around the guitar shop where he taught guitar lessons. He also plays some of his songs live (not youtube style... very professional). Lastly, he gives some instruction on how to tune and play a few of his songs. He still plays too fast for me as a beginner, but as I improve, I will come back and try to give some of these a shot.

I like that he is just a regular guy with an amazing talent and he remains humble through it all. Keep up the awesome work, Andy!

While music is dominated by guitar players, finding an innovator is a much more difficult task. Of course the likes of the feedback king Jimi Hendrix or the jazz based fret tapping of Stanley Jordan expanded into the electric arena by Eddie Van Halen creates not just a musical experience but an audio adventure land. So how what happens when you extend that fret tapping by adding your guitar as a percussive instrument and sometimes in almost seamless unison? Better yet how about making this unique musical style not only technically brilliant but also warm and accessible? Look no further to the latest offering from Andy McKee.

Of the ten tracks present on Joyland, eight of them are self composed and all of them with a clinical crystal clear self production. The two covers are the bouncy melodic Tears For Fears hit "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" in completely contrast with the more technically driven Michael Hedges cover "Layover". The remaining balance of the album is solely focused on McKee with the driving "Hunter's Moon" being one of the many standout tracks. If you are impressed with this delightful ear candy supplement it with a visit to YouTube and you will see but still not believe your eyes. But let's back track as the album opens with the rhythmic and hypnotic title track which also features McKee on the cello and glockenspiel. McKee even entertains us with the more folksy and compelling "Never Grow Old" featuring Shawn Pelton on drums. This would be a great song to accompany you on a drive on a winding country road laced with arching trees and a rainbow of autumn colored leaves. But McKee leaves the best for last with the melancholy reflective "For Now" that closes this compelling album.

I loved this Cd and I liked that fact that it came with a Dvd packaged as well. It was great to not only hear Andy play but see him as well. A very talented artist and a good purchase.

This album is simply a must have for any Andy McKee fan. If this album happens to be your first exposure to ths artist, in my opinion it would be hard to do better. The album/CD purchase comes with a video that is nice. The Mp3 is music only. Along with Antoine Dufour, Stephen Bennett and Don Ross, Andy McKee is truly at the pinnacle of his art form. The true elite of the acoustic guitar with open tunings and heavenly harmonics. Listen to it...and you will love it.

I first saw Andy McKee play on a YouTube video and had to buy this CD. This is a true master at work, who creates sounds from a guitar that I have never heard before. His talent is amazing and this is a wonderful CD, one of many I have purchased from a true artist whose work I admire.

Andy McKee does on the acoustic guitar what Eddie Van Halen did for the electric. He has essentially invented another way to play the instrument, sounding like an entire band in the process. Instrumentally, the album is an amazing set of instrumental songs. To appreciate Andy's work further, go watch him actually play (via YouTube or in concert). The guy really takes a creative approach to playing guitar.

This is a great album from Andy McKee. There are many other fingerstyle guitarists out there but Andy's style just seems a little better to listen to than the other. Not taking anything away from the other big names but Andy's songs just seem to have catchier lines.

I am sure you have seen his Youtube videos by now. He is just a cool guy that is very genuine. I can't wait for the next album.
