The former vocalist of Mike and The Mechanics and the voice behind world-wide hits such as ‘How Long’ by Ace, Squeeze’s ‘Tempted’ and the timeless classic ‘The Living Years’ Carrack is now firmly established as a solo performer.

He plays Preston Guild Hall on Saturday, November 16.

Initially finding fame with Ace and Roxy Music, he has gone on to enjoy a successful career that spans 40 years, including guest appearances on more than 60 albums, as well as writing for The Eagles, Diana Ross, Tom Jones, Michael McDonald and Jools Holland among others. Over the past decade or so Paul has worked increasingly in his own right on many solo albums; Satisfy My Soul (2000), Groovin’ (2001), It Ain’t Over (2003), Winter Wonderland (2005), Old, New, Borrowed and Blue (2007), I Know That Name (2008), A Different Hat with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (2010) and the current album Good Feeling which came out in September 2012.

And last year BBC4 screened The Man With The Golden Voice – a programme that documented Paul’s emergence from his Sheffield upbringing to the star he is today.

Paul also recently toured as a member of Eric Clapton’s Band.
