Paul Kelly To Perform At Kiwi Churches


Media release – Tuesday 22nd January 2013

Paul Kelly To Perform At Kiwi Churches

Australian folk rock legend Paul Kelly is coming back to NZ this March to perform intimate concerts at two of New Zealand’s beautiful landmark churches. Promising to be a treat for all that attend, Kelly will make his way through his outstanding catalogue of work to date accompanied by his talented nephew Dan Kelly (also on guitar).

Paul Kelly has recorded nineteen studio albums as well as the music for several film and television soundtracks. He has been the recipient of 5 ARIA film awards for best original soundtrack (Lantana), and for music, multiple ARIA’s 3 APRA songwriting awards and 6 CMA’s (Australian Country Music Awards). He was inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1997 and was a finalist for Australian of the Year in 2012.

Throughout his impressive career Kelly has also written songs for other influential artists including Mick Thomas, Renee Geyer, Kate Ceberano, Nick Cave, Kasey Chambers, Missy Higgins and Troy Cassar-Daley.

His songs have touched the hearts of fans in Australia, New Zealand and the USA where David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine called Kelly “one of the finest songwriters I have ever heard…” Gems such as Before Too Long, Darling It Hurts, Dumb Things, To Her Door and Give in to My Love make up the legacy amplified only by Kelly’s unique approach to music and his deep lyrical understanding.

See the man and the legend live this March in two of New Zealand’s finest churches in Wellington and Auckland!

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
