Album Notes
The band 'Handful of Luvin' originally began in the spring of 2002 when front man David John & Andrew Joslyn {fiddler} met at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. At the time David John was promoting his own second self-produced solo album 'Blue Room,' and had a considerable fan following in Seattle and Bellingham. Andrew on the other hand was a pretty prominent classical musician until he decided to pursue freer styles with fiddle playing such as Scots Irish, blues, Cajun, and also rock fiddle. When the two met, and began playing with each other, Andrew's fiddle complimented David's unique guitar work and soulful vocals perfectly. In the fall of 2003 they began performing together & immediately realized the potential of their sound, and quickly set about forming a band.

Through various transformations & several musicians, the band eventually came across Patrick Files late in 2004 {bass guitar}. Pat's own background with funk, rock, and thrash metal brought a whole new dimension of musical variety into the band.

Within two months, in early 2005, Pat’s friend Mike Knight {drummer} was recruited as the final member into the band. Originally Mike was apart of the indie-jam rock band 'Carraway' and produced several recordings with them. Within HOL he is able to use his extensive expertise with the drums & percussion, and also has an uncanny attention to detail which keeps the band on point.

Every member of the band brings their own entirely unique background with music to the band whether its gypsy, folk, funk, reggae, or rock. When these guys come together, in any setting, it is never disappointing. Handful of Luvin' has an energy that is unparalleled as well as contagious. ln the end Handful of Luvin' is a number of things: it is what the fans and the audience are left with after a HOL show; and it is about five very diverse musicians who love music and try to communicate that to everyone.

Handful of Luvin' released their first album, Balance back in 2005. Their new album, Land of Giant's, is produced by Stevie Adamek, a Seattle rock legend who produced Left Hand Smoke's last album and was a songwriter for the 1980s Seattle band the Allies.

Land of Giants
My daughter, age 16, and I, age 50 saw your performance at Art on the Green in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. We both enjoyed your music and energy. The only thing I wish is that you had lyrics in the cd! Oh, and more cd's!

Great Cd
Guys you have once again done it. Got your new cd from CD Baby a little over a week ago. You guys will be in Yakima on the 3rd for your cd release but I just couldn't wait that long. I'll be there rooting for you guys next Saturday night and have a bunch of people coming with me. Keep rockin guys.

I heard the new songs at the Tractor and just had to buy the cd - it is just great. So glad you guys are doing so well.


Great stuff, as always. I can't understand why this isn't all over the radio and in everyone's collection. Listening to your music always puts me in a good mood!
