My favourite Australian song writer.

Grew up listening to him along with Midnight Oil and I have to say along with The Drones he is one of my favourite Australian artists. Has anyone else outside of Australia heard of him?

For those who havent heard his music I suggest picking up his Greatest Hits album and then going from there.

one of the greatest song writers ever imo... along with Gareth.

It just so happens that the drummer in Paul Kellys band Peter Luscombe is the brother of The Drones lead guitarist Dan Luscombe.

Just listened to Everythings Turning to White great song very sincere one of few songs for me where I can really enjoy the lyrics.

Paul Kelly and Nick Cave sit very high atop of the tree in Australia.

Gareth is well on his way in joining what I think is a very select and finite group.

Did you catch his nice cover of Cinnamon Girl?

Yes! It was pretty good I'm going to have to see him live sometime I think.
