Kelly and Owen’s Heavenly Sounds

Caitlin Tait

Currently making their way through Australia’s churches and cathedrals, Paul Kelly and Charlie Owen are making sweet music fit for the gods.

The pair have joined musical forces to tour their latest album ‘Death’s Dateless Night’, a collection of songs they’ve performed at funerals. It may seem bleak, but don’t let this stop you. It’s bound to be a spiritual experience.

To Heavenly Sounds, Kelly said, ‘Charlie and I had talked over the years about making a record together but had never got around to it. Driving to a friend’s funeral last year and discussing the songs we’d played at other such occasions, separately and together, finally gave us our frame… It’s interesting to look at the kinds of songs people request at funerals. They’re not always sad, of course.  They tend towards the philosophical, wide and deep in scope.’

Kelly’s daughters Memphis Kelly (of band SAATSUMA) and Maddy Kelly were featured on the album, making their mark with their glorious harmonies, and will also be joining the tour to offer their voices and all-round good times.

Memphis, Paul, and Maddy are the sweetest (and grooviest) music-makers.

‘Heavenly Sounds’ is a network that has shown musicians such as Julia Stone, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Laura Marling touring in Australia’s churches and cathedrals. Set to be a night to make all your acoustic and aesthetic dreams come true, this tour will be nothing short of spectacular. Which is unsurprising when is comes to musicians of the calibre of Paul Kelly.

Kelly and Owen’s album is out now, featuring songs such as ‘Meet Me In The Middle Of The Air’, and ‘To Live Is To Fly’, and ‘Let It Be’.

Music to our ears. Literally.
