Andy Northrup

Review by: Len   

     You know that great feeling. The one you get when talking to a long absent friend. The feeling that hits the moment when you both realize that it seems just like yesterday. No difficulty in talking. No uncomfortable moments. You just pick up where you left off years ago. That is precisely the reaction I had when I first listened to "Making My Way". I expected a positive experience, no doubt. My expectations are met and beyond.

     Admittedly a fan from Andy Northrup's first two CD's, I was anxious to hear what a few years of musical absence would bring. I say musical but mean new CD to be specific. (While we may have missed new music that is not to say this multi-faceted artist has not been creating.) To be honest the word missed or missing does not even apply to the listening experience.. 

    In addition to a fine vocal delivery, Andy Northrup has a unique and wonderful ability at story telling. His specialty is to share that story with music. I am reminded of the Woody Guthrie style of observance and sharing. The "everyman" quality to Guthrie's works are echoed in "Making My Way". Even present in the title maybe? Northrup like Guthrie has a sincere way of seeing and sharing what he see in the lives around him. Not always a life he knows well. It may just be a fleeting moment in a public square or a chance meeting in a bar. However, Andy Northrup can take that brief encounter and create a musical vision. Complete with vibrancy, emotion, and depth. 

   It seems the songs Andy sings are personal, close to him. Things he may have done or experienced. That is just a part of the Northrup charm and magic. Andy draws you in, includes you. His stories are something to which many can relate. That makes perfect sense as Andy's stories and music are many times about the world around him. "Making My Way" is a strong and worthy CD. Andy Northrup fans will be thrilled with the familiar depth, wide diversity of possibilities, sincere and sometimes tender delivery that is Andy Northrup.
