Paul Greene and the Other Colours


ONE LAP OF THE SUN (Red Shelf)

4 stars

Studios? They are so early 21st century. For his latest, south coast troubadour Paul Greene and band set to work in The Manse, a Nowra site once used to house men of the cloth, now a facility for artistes and music-makers. Accordingly, Greene’s eighth album puts a whole new spin on the word intimate: listen closely and you might hear him count in the band; you can even spot the type of live rattle and hum mixed out of most records. There’s an ever-present hint of sadness here, too. Greene’s gone through a marriage split — don’t let his whistling during Beautiful Delusion fool you, that’s a break-up song — while the tragic death of his drummer and friend Matt Sykes, to whom One Lap is dedicated, looms large throughout. Channelling such touchstones as Neil Finn and Josh Rouse, this is a rock-solid mix of close-miked acoustica and soulful, all-too-human pop. JEFF APTER

Paul Greene and the Other Colours Album Music AustraliaPaul and his band ‘The Other Colours’ are about to release their 8th album ‘One Lap Of The Sun’ to follow up their 2012 ARIA nomination and will be touring nationally in 2014.

Here is the official press release:
Singer-songwriter extraordinaire Paul Greene has earned a reputation as Australia’s hardest working musician on the back of relentless touring, recording, collaborations and production work. But what would you expect from a former track star who would train hard enough to throw up at least once a week on the way to becoming Australia’s fastest 400-metre runner and competing at the Olympic Games?

Since hanging up his spikes Paul has released eight albums as well as two with ex-Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst. He has also produced records for James Blundell, Kirsty Lee Akers and Melanie Horsnell. He has sold more than 60,000 albums and even recorded a cover of the Wiggles, much to the pleasure of two beautiful daughters. He’s also fronting the latest incarnation of Spy v Spy.

Paul has remained staunchly independent until signing with ABC Records in 2011, a deal whose first album, Behind the Stars, produced an ARIA Award nomination. While he has played the big festivals (East Coast Blues and Roots, Woodford and Queenscliff), Paul maintains a strong belief in the power of community and has toured relentlessly, sometimes doing more than 200 gigs a year in even the remotest corners of the land, from town halls in Bruny Island to marsh parties in Derby.

His music travels just as extensively, with Sydney Morning Herald music editor Bernard Zuel remarking how Paul moves effortlessly “from rustic folk-pop to unreconstructed rocker; from herbal roots ex-surfer type to intense singer-songwriter”.

Paul’s interesting ride continues with his eighth album, One Lap of the Sun, to be released through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia on March 28, 2014.
