Paul Kelly With Dan Kelly
From very early on in his career, Paul Kelly has been recognized as one of the most significant singer/ songwriters in the country.
As well as issuing an enduring body of work with his own bands, Kelly has recorded film scores (Lantana and the Cannes 2006 highlight, Jindabyne) and written songs with and for many other artists. Songs From The South, a selection of his popular songs first assembled in 1997 and expanded to a double album in 2008, continues to have wide appeal, with many of his songs now lodged deep in the Australian psyche.
He continues to cross musical boundaries. Recent albums include the bluegrass inspired Foggy Highway, the wide ranging double set, Ways & Means and Stolen Apples. The JJJ tribute album Before Too Long, released earlier this year, featuring John Butler, Missy Higgins, Megan Washington, Paul Dempsey, Ozi Batla and many others is evidence of his continuing influence on generations of musicians.
His first work of prose, a self described ‘mongrel memoir’, is due out on Penguin in October accompanied by a CD box set of live recordings.
