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.
