From Soldier to Songwriter: Introducing Paul Handelman

December 19, 2017 by Alyssa Sudermann

"Forest Beutel, one of the most well known bluegrass musicians in the State of Washington, has long been one of Paul’s mentors.  Beutel had this to say about playing on Unbridled, 'Working with Paul was a great experience.  We went in with open minds and watched the songs grow and evolve in the studio. What listeners will hear on the album…strong, honest, 21st Century American stories for true Country music fans.'...”



Concert Review: Kickin’ it on the Creek pre-party at the Burl

Posted on August 20, 2019 by Josh Trosper

"Padre Paul’s one man band set up with guitar, kick drum, and cymbal playing paired with banjo player, Dan Johnson ripped off a set highlighting his most recent release “Unbridled”. Set staples included “Six Dollars” a tune that talks about the hardships of life on the road, “I’m chasing white lightening through the hills of Tennessee, find some picking friends down in Kentucky”. Needless to say The Burl crowd ate it up.  Another highlight was a raucous cover of Ryan Bingham’s “Southside of Heaven”.  Padre Paul Handelman is a Kickin It On The Creek must-see."
