INTERVIEW – In Conversation With Paul Carrack (Singer/Songwriter)

By Marty Mulrooney

Paul Carrack

Paul Carrack is a British singer/songwriter who was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. He has played with many successful bands over the years including Ace, Squeeze, Mike & The Mechanics and Roxy Music. He has also toured extensively as a session musician and enjoyed success as a solo artist. Last year, I reviewed Carrack’s latest offering A Different Hat, which I described as “an album that manages to take a wide range of aging material and successfully bring it bang up to date.” The album also featured in AMO’s ‘Best of 2010 Awards’. I am therefore delighted to present an exclusive interview with Paul Carrack where we discuss his extensive music career.

MUSIC REVIEW – A Different Hat by Paul Carrack

By Marty Mulrooney

Paul Carrack A Different Hat

Paul Carrack is a singer/songwriter that  I imagine many people will have heard over the years, perhaps without even realising. The former Mike + The Mechanics vocalist breathed life into such hits as How Long by Ace and Tempted by Squeeze, and has written for artists such as The Eagles, Tom Jones and Jools Holland. A Different Hat is Carrack’s latest solo effort, an album that allows him to reinterpret his own back catalogue, as well as the classic hits of numerous other musicians he admires, whilst being accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
