Man with the golden voice comes to Guild Hall
One of the hardest working guys in modern music, Paul Carrack is all set to take the stage again later in the year for his 2013 - 2014 tour, celebrating more than five decades in the music business.
The former vocalist with Mike and The Mechanics and the voice behind worldwide hits such as ‘How Long’ by Ace, Squeeze’s ‘Tempted’ and, of course, the timeless number one sad classic ‘The Living Years’.
Initially finding fame with Ace and Roxy Music, Carrack is now firmly established as a solo performer.
In a career that spans 40 years Paul has appeared on more than 60 albums, as well as writing for The Eagles, Diana Ross, Tom Jones, Michael McDonald and Jools Holland among many others.
Over the past decade or so Paul has worked increasingly in his own right on several solo albums, starting with Satisfy My Soul in 2000, and Groovin’ a year later.
