Andy Gullahorn ‘Everything As It Should Be’ Album Review

Andy Gullahorn
Everything As It Should Be
(St. Jerome Music)

Now 20 years into his artistic journey, Andy Gullahorn takes a reflective and confessional approach throughout his latest long player Everything As It Should Be. Listeners are greeted from the get go by striking observations throughout “Different Now” as the singer-songwriter ponders, “I felt that holy water as a kid/ but still the love of God felt like a stranger/ I had to die to become born again/ baptized in the flame of all my failure.”

That soul-bearing approach is also tempered with the humor of “Teenagers,” in which the now 40-something husband (of fellow artist Jill Phillips) and father teases “but who else could protect us from having fun in public?/ from wearing things that might be out of style/ who else could remind us our best years are behind us?”

All the while, the album is bathed in understated acoustics and unfussy production that give the 11 tracks a cozy feel that may as well be live streaming straight out of his living room.
