PAUL DEMPSEY ANNOUNCES INTIMATE SOLO SHOWS FOR FEBRUARY 2018
After a jam-packed 2017 that has involved yet another sold out run around the country with his extraordinary backing band, a month of shows in Europe, a guest appearance on vocals with David Bowie’s band at the Sydney Opera House and a second invitation and appearance at India’s NH7 Weekender Festival, Paul Dempsey returns to Canberra for an intimate solo performance in The Playhouse.
Having released his second solo album Strange Loop to outstanding reviews and a top five ARIA chart debut, this run of shows will showcase Paul’s formidable talent as he takes to the stage on his own, offering fans intimate and stripped back interpretations of songs from Strange Loop as well as his gold-selling debut Everything Is True, plus the odd well-chosen cover, something that Paul has a unique talent for. This show promises to be an up close and personal evening with one of Australia’s most singular artists.
“One of our leading craftsmen of refined acoustic pop” The West Australian
“Paul Dempsey retains his place as one of Australia’s best songwriters… immediately pleasing, but never predictable. It seems like Dempsey never takes the easy option when writing songs and it means that the songs have an extra kind of depth.” Double J
“Dempsey is a gifted observer of the human condition” The Daily Telegraph
“With Paul Dempsey, the tally for genius lyrics per second is positively baffling… one of Australia’s finest songwriters” Beat Magazine
