Press Release:


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!
