Andrew Appletree’s gritty, bluesy, blend of hard rock and roots rock/Americana is truly born of the 1960’s. His unvarnished rock n roll would fit well on AOR radio from that era. The overall effect is made up of blues rock guitar chords and catchy rhythms that will endear itself to listeners from the opening notes. Appletree’s whiskey-soaked vocals are reminiscent of George Thorogoood and The Destroyers. With guest appearances of Rick Derringer on his second Dragonfly, Andrew Appletree is making huge strides with his music.
The music is straight-up roots rock. When you hear the music you’ll imagine seeing this band perform live in a bar somewhere, with sawdust on the floor and raw wood tables heaped high with half-empty beer bottles and overflowing ashtrays. Lastly Appletree’s gravelly voice lends itself well to the overall rustic vibe of the music.
Get yourself a copy of Andrew Appletree’s album, Dragonfly because as one reviewer put it, “it’s music for a good time”.
