#230 – Paul Kelly – Presents the Merri Soul Sessions

Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly has tackled many different styles in his long career.  His latest project brings together some of the finest singers from his native country, and the result is Paul Kelly Presents the Merri Soul Sessions (read our review here), a collection of eleven R&B-tinged tracks recorded with a live band. Some of the guests include Clairy Browne, Vika & Linda Bull, Kira Puru, and Dan Sultan.  Kelly talks about what led to this all-star album, the stripped-down way things were recorded, and what each vocalist brought to the project.
