He's had songs recorded by Gregg Allman, Debbie Davies, and the Westerleys, but he's most at home performing his own songs alone or with the musicians on his three CDs 'Smile,' 'Love's Dark Satellite,' and his current 'Andy Padlo.' He's shared the stage with Laurie Lewis, Robin and Linda Williams, Duck Baker, and the Cache Valley Drifters. He later spent years focusing on songwriting exclusively, co-writing 'Startin' Over' with Reed Fromer, recorded by Gregg Allman on his solo CD Searching for Simplicity. Padlo's latest CD is a collection of his best songs, recorded with Jim Mirkovic on drums and Gahko Sakai on bass, with simple arrangements and tight harmonies, featuring the entire spectrum of his writing, from Somewhere in Between, a song about a rough night for a 14-year-old kid in the valley, to Looking Back at the Blue, a song much harder to pin down lyrically, about a state of mind in the world these days. Padlo's guitar work sparkles throughout this disc, and his voice is warm and clear. He is a writer and performer to reckon with, with songs that hold their power in the words: Inside we know what we mean Some of us stand tall Some of us lean Most of us wind up somewhere in between Somewhere in Between © 2006 Andy Padlo.
