Dragonfly is the 2012 release of Andrew Appletree and the Neptune Riders, and it’s a good
one, without doubt. Appletree’s gritty, whiskey-soaked vocals are reminiscent of George
Thorogood and the Destroyers and the album itself is full of blues rock guitar chords and
catchy rhythms. Classic rock with a dash of folk, a pinch of punk, and some roots rock is how
to best describe Dragonfly, but whatever you want to call it, there is no denying that it simply
Rocks.

…raucous and in-your-
face; it is also hooky, infectious and very easy to get into.

Now here is rock and roll as raw and real as it gets in these days when most music is cut and
pasted together instead of being organically grown.

Reviewer: Mike Korn

This is the real deal right here, classic rock that’s fresh and new and with a kick.

Reviewer: Mike Korn

For a first album, by a non-professional musician, Andrew Appletree displays ample songcraft, a strong grasp of studio dynamics, and an excellent ear for arrangements. These songs will appeal to the country and AOR fan who appreciates a strong melody and heartfelt sentiment.
