Paul Kelly

Paul Kelly has recorded nineteen studio albums as well as several film soundtracks (Lantana and the Cannes 2006 highlight, Jindabyne) and two live albums, in an influential career spanning more than thirty years. He was inducted into the ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association) Hall of Fame in 1997.

Songs From The South, a selection of his popular songs first assembled in 1997 and expanded to a double album in 2008, contains many of his songs now lodged deep in the Australian psyche.

He continues to cross musical boundaries. The Triple J tribute album Before Too Long, released in 2010, featuring John Butler, Missy Higgins, Megan Washington, Paul Dempsey, Ozi Batla and many others is evidence of his influence on generations of musicians.

His first work of prose, a self described ‘mongrel memoir’, was published in 2010 with Penguin and is accompanied by a CD box set of live recordings and an audio book with readings from Paul and some of Australia’s finest actors Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Judy Davis and Ben Mendelsohn.

The book, the audio book and the A-Z recordings now make up a unique app. An app which in Paul’s words is “the closest thing to how I imagined the book to be – something that sings and talks and plays.”

In late 2012, PAUL KELLY – STORIES OF ME, a feature-length documentary premiered in Melbourne. During October, it screened in a series of exclusive one night only events around the country with an appearance by Paul Kelly and the film’s AFI Award-winning director and producer, Ian Darling, of Shark Island Productions.

Distributed by Madman Films, PAUL KELLY – STORIES OF ME is an intimate portrait of the very private man behind the music. For the first time on film, Kelly speaks candidly about the people who have helped shape his life and music. Featuring rare archival footage, PAUL KELLY – STORIES OF ME also unveils newly recorded live performances, as well as interviews with family members, former and current band members, music contemporaries and music media. It is now available to purchase on DVD.

Paul Kelly’s latest album ‘Spring and Fall’ was released in October 2012.



Described by Joe Duffy on Christmas Eve as ‘The Woman who gave her Heart to the Nation’, Eleanor
McEvoy announces the release of ‘If You Leave…’ her first all new studio album since I’d Rather Go
Blonde in 2010

The new recording features 8 news songs and 4 interpretations including God only Knows, True Colors, and Lift the Wings from Riverdance. Recorded live in the studio with some of Ireland’s finest players this album of soulful performances shows Eleanor in a bluesier neo-retro style.

To coincide with the If You Leave…’ album launch Eleanor plays selected dates round Ireland on

Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing.

Formerly a session musician, including a long stint with The NSO, she decided whilst, with The Mary
Black Band, that she should cash in the savings and develop her own career.

One week her life changed. Mary”s label owner heard Eleanor play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation… ‘A Woman’s Heart Ireland’s best selling album

Simultaneously she was signed to Geffen where her eponymous album went on to sell ¼ million copies.

Precious Little was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders.

Her most recent album Alone is a collection of her best-loved songs performed solo.

Watch out for the BIG BLACK CAR as it comes your way, a large Australian Ford Fairlane Estate (one of only 3 ever privately sold)
