Paul Kelly — Composer
Paul Kelly is one of Australia’s best-known singer/songwriters. David Fricke, music editor of Rolling
Stone in the US, called Kelly ‘one of the finest songwriters I have ever heard, Australian or otherwise’.
With around 20 albums to his name, including several film scores, Paul Kelly has never gone out of favour.
In 1989 Paul Kelly wrote a song and released an album (“So Much Water So Close To Home”) inspired by
the same Raymond Carver story on which “Jindabyne” is based.
