Paul Carrack

Paul Carrack has been a ubiquitous presence in British rock and pop music for more than 40 years with a strong and distinctive voice, a gift for many instruments and skillful songwriting. A one-hour BBC Four television documentary in 2012 hailed the Yorkshire-born musician as the "golden voice" of Ace's 'How Long' (1974), Squeeze's 'Tempted' (1981) and 'The Living Years' (1988) by Mike + The Mechanics and said, "Carrack is a journeyman of British rock, soul and pop whose career has unfolded slowly and steadily until he has become something of a national treasure." Carrack gained attention first in the mid-1970s with the band Warm Dust and then fronted his own group, Ace, with later stints alongside Roxy Music and Squeeze, and he was long associated with Mike + The Mechanics. He sang lead on the Roger Waters albums 'Radio K.A.O.S.' and 'The Wall - Live in Berlin' and he has toured with Eric Clapton, Elton John, B.B. King, The Pretenders and Ringo Starr. He has performed at Glastonbury, New York's Roosevelt Raceway, the Hollywood Bowl and London's Wembley Stadium, including the 70th birthday concert there for Nelson Mandela. Solo albums include 'Nightbird' (1980), 'One Good Reason' (1987), 'Still Groovin'' (2002), 'It Ain't Over' (2003), 'Good Feeling' (2012) and 'Rain Or Shine' (2013). He released two seasonal albums with a big band, 'A Soulful Christmas' and 'Winter Wonderland', and in 2010 he recorded an album of the Great American Songbook titled 'A Different Hat' with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. An album of 35 tracks called 'Paul Carrack: The Singles Collection 2000-2017' was released in 2017 and he continued to tour the British Isles with his band. He released his 17th solo album 'These Days' in 2018 and embarked on a UK tour.
