Australian-born singer/songwriter Paul Kelly has been riding a wave of inspiration, releasing his fourth album in only two years. His new release titled "Nature" features a dozen tracks that continue to prove that Paul Kelly is one of the greatest living songwriters of our era. He begins with the short, acoustic-based strumming of "And Death Shall Have No Dominion," which quickly re-introduces you to his wonderful, lyric-filled songs. He plugs in for the raw, steady rock of "With The One I Love," before switching back once again for the folk ballad "A Bastard Like Me." He works alongside fellow singer, Kate Miller-Heidke for the emotional, storied tale of "Bound To Follow (Aisling Song)," before reverting back to his folk roots for the simple sounds of "Seagulls Of Seattle." Paul Kelly wraps up his new album with the light, dream-like touch of music for "Mushrooms" and the country-sway of "The Trees."
