unveils video for new single
“Firewood And Candles”
Album ‘Life Is Fine’ released Friday August 11
Available for pre-order NOW
Filmed in Warrandyte in the outer suburbs of Melbourne and directed by Prad Sen (Alison Wonderland, DZ Deathrays, Rubens), it depicts Kelly as a smiling chef, a concept “cooked up” by Paul and Prad together!
Paul Kelly is an enthusiastic cook, and he embraced the opportunity to take on the role, saying, “Cooking seems to pop up in songs of mine from time to time. The director, Prad Sen, and I wanted to pick up on that without getting too literal. We brainstormed with the Salvador Dali cookbook, seventies style recipes and TV cooking shows. From there things just got curiouser and curiouser.”
Ahead of its imminent release, ‘Life Is Fine’ has already been touted as one of the most powerful albums of Kelly’s career. Firewood and Candles is a rollicking track reminiscent of his finest ‘80s recordings, a feeling which permeates the whole album.
“I knew I wanted it to be an upbeat record,” Kelly says. “We worked with Steve Schram, who engineered and co-produced. He likes to work really fast and get the performance of the band live in the studio, vocals and all at the same time. There are lots of different ways to make records but that’s the way I like to do it now.’’
Kelly was one of the highlights of the recent Splendour in the Grass Music Festival in Byron Bay, The Guardian paying tribute to his rousing live performance, saying “Paul Kelly … managed to turn Australiana anthems like How to Make Gravy, When I First Met Your Ma and To Her Door into a surprising party soundtrack at the GW McLennan tent on night two”.

AMNPLIFY – DB[/fusion_text]
My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.
Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.
Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.
Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
