Michael Elliott, author of the forthcoming John Hiatt biography "Have a Little Faith", gave Andy's EP "Pack It Up" a really nice write-up here.
Refreshing songs with hooks and heart
Andy Sneed is your future favorite taproom surprise. His bright, polished ’80s-meets-Americana songs are constructed with deeply thoughtful and carefully crafted lyrics telling stories that draw you into the narrative.
Settle in with your IPA and let Andy's catchy tunes wash over you with sing-along hooks and heartfelt storytelling. The tales sound personal because they are pulled largely from real people and events in his life. If you detect notes of Petty, Mellencamp or the John Prine family tree in Andy's earnest and sometimes humorous lyrics, it’s because the stories are authentic to the max.
Like the work of those legendary singer-songwriters, Andy's songs are tapestries woven of longing, loss and love. A consistent thread of hope and optimism runs through the music, despite his occasional acknowledgment that there’s darkness on the edge of town.
Don't be surprised when you find yourself tapping your foot and humming Andy Sneed's choruses long after the final chords ring out. The melodies are both fresh and familiar, just like that favorite brew that brought you to the pub to begin with.
