Paul Kelly
Paul Kelly
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.
Laura Tsaggaris
Laura Tsaggaris
Laura Tsaggaris writes and performs songs on acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and ukulele. Most recently, she completed her fifth CD—a live record funded by fan contributions and pre-orders of over $20,000. Entitled Live At The Atlas, her latest work draws inspiration from some of the great live albums that shaped Laura as a songwriter (Nirvana: Unplugged, Ani Difranco: Living in Clip, Erykah Badu: Live, Fleetwood Mac: The Dance). The focus is acoustic, featuring one new song and fresh arrangements of 16 others from my previous full-length albums. Laura recorded Live At The Atlas on Friday, September 26th and Saturday, September 27th, 2014, before a live audience at The Atlas Performing Arts Center in the historic H Street Corridor of Northeast Washington, D.C. The album was released at the 9:30 Club.

Laura’s most recent studio album, EVERYMAN, was produced by Jamie Candiloro (REM, Willie Nelson) and invites comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow. It features backing vocals from Ryan Adams, guitar work from Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams, Ray LaMontagne) and pedal steel from Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty). Film talents David Conrad (Wedding Crashers, The Ghost Whisperer) and Mark Schwartzbard (20 Feet From Stardom, Borat) shot the video for the first single, “Dig,” close to Laura’s hometown in Pittsburgh. The music video for the album’s second single, “Ask For It,” is made up of footage from a sold out release show at one of D.C.’s top venues, The Hamilton.

Laura has traveled the country for the last 15 years in support of 5 independent releases from her label, Overtime Records. “Overtime” comes from her days of fitting in studio time in the late evening and early morning hours before she was able to go full-time with music. Laura’s albums span the genres of Folk (EP – 2001, Proof – 2005), Rock (Keep Talking – 2009), AAA/Alt-Country (EVERYMAN – 2013), and Americana (Live At The Atlas – 2015). Chunky Glasses calls her “a skilled assured artist,” and AmericanaUK affirms, “Laura is real talent.”
