Paul Kelly & Charlie Owen
Paul Kelly has recorded over 21 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 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 How To Make Gravy, 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 August 2012, ‘Paul Kelly – Stories Of Me’, a feature-length documentary premiered in Melbourne. Distributed by Madman Films, the documentary 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.
Also in 2012, he released a solo album entitled ‘Spring And Fall’, a song cycle which tells a love story from multiple points of view.
In 2014, Paul took an innovative direction and released ‘Paul Kelly Presents The Merri Soul Sessions’ – a soul revue record featuring Clairy Browne, Vika and Linda Bull, Dan Sultan, Kira Puru and himself.
On 23 April, 2016 – the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death – Paul released ‘Seven Sonnets & A Song’. The record features Paul singing lead vocals on 6 of Shakespeare’s sonnets and a song from Twelfth Night. The only non-Shakespearian piece is ‘My True Love Hath My Heart’, written by his contemporary Sir Philip Sidney and sung by Vika Bull.
‘Death’s Dateless Night’ by Paul and Charlie Owen is out now. The album features songs that Paul and Charlie have performed at funerals.
20-year-old Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter, Lily Mae, raises a distinctively sublime voice in songs of true millennial grit. Her melodic knack– granted limitless reign by a stunning vocal range– is unrelenting, with a free-wheeling kind of brilliance and allure comparable to a young Joni Mitchell. Lily taps into the free-spirited nature of her generation by mixing alternative folk, rock, and jazz in her music. She is an unmistakable artist, as noted by music industry legend and beloved late president of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall, when he said, “Lily Mae has a signature voice, writes excellent songs, and is a future star.”
Lily’s new EP, Closer, boasts seven tracks, showcasing her as a vocalist, songwriter, musician, and producer. Additionally, select tracks on the album were recorded with producer, Steve Brown (Laura Mvula, Rumer) at his studio in England. The UK’s the Line of Best Fit wrote, “An effortless vocal … sun-kissed songs,” upon hearing Closer. The EP made its debut on Rookie Magazine, “Lily Mae’s angelic voice makes me feel like everything will be OK.”
Lily has supported Joan Osborne, Livingston Taylor, Ben Taylor, Nathaniel Rateliff, John Gorka, Dry The River, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Louden Wainwright III, Harry Shearer and Judith Owen, Ari Hest, Iain Matthews, Paul Shaffer, Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), The Marshall Tucker Band, Jenny Owen Youngs, Amy Helm, Cheryl Wheeler, Alice Ripley, The Claire Lynch Band, Jay Brannan, Bobby Long, Sean Rowe, Amy Correia, Caroline Rose, The Kennedy’s and many others.
On the heels of Lily Mae’s debut release, “Early Days,” iTunes featured Lily as a New & Noteworthy singer-songwriter. For Folk’s Sake called Lily “a younger Laura Marling before she was scorned by life”. “Truly amazing,” “prodigal,” and “innovative” are all words that have been used to describe Lily’s work. After attending Lily’s show at Firefly Music Festival, Tri State Indie wrote that Lily has a “voice of gold.”
