Paul Kelly, Australia’s sensational rock artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
Paul Maurice Kelly was born in Adelaide (South Australia) in 1955 and is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and harmonica player. He began his musical journey by learning to play the guitar when he was in his late teens. His debut performance was in Hobart (Tasmania) in 1974 and two years later, he moved to Melbourne to join R&B pub band the High Rise Bombers. Over the years, his musical style has spanned many genres such as indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegaze), folk, country, and dub (a style that grew out of reggae in the 1960s and consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings that are created by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece, and emphasizing the drum and bass parts). He’s had a stellar career with 22 studio albums and he’s received many accolades including 10 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards. He was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1997.
