A&R Factory review of “Like That”

Andy Ard – “Why You Gotta Be Like That?” : A Brilliant Message With An Unforgettable Chorus

As soon as I heard the words “You’re making your mind up every hour of every day, How you want to be, and it will always go your way,’ accompanied by a propelling harmonic and rhythmic movement, and sung so convincingly, I understood that Andy Ard has truly mastered his craft of songwriting and song delivery.


Andy is a pop pro and can write and play alongside the big boys.

Music review for “What She Did”

“That’s What She Did to Me” and “Baby Don’t Care” touch on rockabilly without succumbing to shtickiness, and “Wonderful” and “This May Be” gently evoke romantic possibility. They represent a fresh start, and a welcome one.
