One of Australia’s most respected songwriters, Paul Dempsey, is happy to announce a new round of solo shows throughout the summer months of January and February. Having released his second solo album Strange Loop to outstanding reviews and a top 5 ARIA chart debut in May 2016, this new series of shows takes Paul out of the major cities and into regional centres for the first time playing tracks from Strange Loop as well as his gold-selling debut Everything Is True as well as the odd well chosen cover for old times sake, up close and, yes, personal.
Co-produced by Paul and Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams) at Wilco’s The Loft Studio in Chicago, Strange Loop reveals a super-charged Dempsey; his voice more potent and powerful than ever, his stories and characters magnified, his instrumentation more adventurous and playful. It’s an album that sounds like doing what you want, and actually getting it right.
