Paul Kelly is an icon of Australian music who personifies Australia in the same way that Bruce Springsteen does the United States, and the Clash the UK.
His output has ranged from bluegrass to studio-oriented dub reggae, but his core output comfortably straddles folk, rock, and even some country. His lyrics, simply and laconically voiced, have managed to speak to Australian experiences and history perhaps more broadly and directly than any other artist.
Raised in, Adelaide, South Australia, Kelly's career can be broken into three distinct periods: first as Paul Kelly & The Dots; then as Paul Kelly & The Coloured Girls, later known as Paul Kelly & the Messengers; and lastly as Paul Kelly the solo artist (a period that also included his involvement with side-projects Professor Ratbaggy, a more groove-oriented and less song-based ensemble and with Uncle Bill/Stormwater Boys, both bluegrass ensembles).
Though he has worked with other songwriters since 1992, the years from then 'til present, might be considered his solo period. During that time he has released 8 albums and has written songs with and for many other artists, including Renee Geyer, Kate Ceberano,
Vika and Linda Bull, Nick Cave, Kasey Chambers, Yothu Yindi,
Archie Roach and Troy Cassar-Daley
