Now solidly into his fourth decade as a recording and touring artist, with no indication of slowing down, Australia's Paul Kelly has cemented his reputation as an international troubadour par excellence. Given the frenetic pace at which he worked over the last few years, which included new releases and multi-continent tours, 2014 was supposed to be a year off for the artist, yet he still managed to write and record a new album the focus of which is soul music. The Merri Soul Sessions in an exciting departure for Paul, yet somehow still retains that vintage Kelly sheen. "I started to imagine a soul revue type record performed live in the studio with a variety of singers and the one band. I'd fallen in love with Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes' "Love Letter", the sound of it as well as the song, so invited Clairy and the producer of that record, Steve Schram, to get involved." - Paul Kelly 2014.
