CD Review: Andrew Handrick Finds "Distractions"

Irish singer/songwriter Andrew Handrick has recently released his second self-financed independent album entitled “Distractions.” The 10-song, acoustic album was also recorded and produced by Handrick at his home studio in Italy.

The album is great to listen to when you just want to kick-back and relax as Handrick’s vocals in “Make It Right” and “Yellow River” put you right as ease with your problems. You can feel Andrew spill his heart out on “Forever” as his lyrics just fit in perfectly with his acoustic guitar. The song “Distractions” gives off a protest-folk vibe, while the contrast of “Just For Tonite” gives us a warm, gentle feeling of love. The album closes with that laid-back sounds of “Bourdon Smiles” as you will surely press repeat to hear this album again.

The album was released back in August, but a natural disaster in Vernazza delayed his promotion of the album. For more information on this artist, please visit his website at
