Paul Kelly Biography

Wiki Biography: Despite being one of the most significant and talented singer/songwriters to ever come out of Australia, Paul Kelly has never really achieved the status of 'superstar', because his music, which is best described as 'poetic' and 'harmonious' was never mainstream enough to attract the crowds of INXS, never controversial enough to attract the Midnight Oil fans, never rocking enough for the Jimmy Barnes fans, and never constant enough for the John Farnham fans. Paul Kelly may be a singer, but his music is poetry, sheer poetry. Incredible songs such as 'To her door', 'It started with a kiss' and 'Tease me' are simply musical poetry. Kelly, always one to recognise this, has released a book of his song lyrics, called 'Don't start me talking'. The Kelly bloodline is also talented. Paul's own daughter Memphis Kelly starred in 'One Night The Moon' with him, and his nephew Dan Kelly is a famous singer/guitarist in Australia, playing with Paul on his latest album, and releasing an album of his own. Paul is married to actress Kaarin Fairfax. He has also written the music for several Australian movies and still continues to record albums today.
