Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly has tackled a lot of different musical projects over the last few years – he’s recorded a soul album, a duet album with Neil Finn of Crowded House, he put music to Shakespeare’s poetry and did a record with guitarist Charlie Owen of songs played a funerals.
His latest project, Life is Fine, returns Kelly to his rock roots. And, he’s planning on touring the States with a full band for the first time in 13 years. We talk to Kelly about this return to rock. Plus he tells us the story behind “Leah The Sequel,” which picks up where a Roy Orbison song left off back in 1962.
