Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky are each deservedly regarded as masters of their chosen crafts. Kelly is counted amongst Australia’s most lauded wordsmiths, while Grabowsky is one of our most decorated note-smiths.
After their first collaborative performance at UKARIA in the Adelaide Hills in 2018, Kelly and Grabowsky have continued their creative partnership to record a new album.
Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky share a unique working relationship that began over a quarter of a century ago as they both explain:
Paul Grabowsky: Paul K and I first met in 1995 when I was making a series of television programs for the ABC about different aspect of music-making called ‘Access All Areas’. We filmed two different segments with him. One paired him with some throat singers from Tuva on a version of ‘Maralinga’ , shot somewhere near Woomera on a train full of artists on their way to WOMAD. The other was a one-on-one interview which we shot in St Kilda; we talked about song writing. I was struck by the fact that Paul is driven by a similar impulse to my own, namely an ongoing fascination with music in its many forms. This deep curiosity has in recent years seen him explore different genres, introduce his love of poetry to his wide and receptive fan base, and record with me.
