It’s only March and so far this year Paul Dempsey has already toured across Europe and The UK performing with members of David Bowie’s band, performed at the Australian of The Year Awards in Canberra, completed a sold out east coast regional tour, had a song in the Hottest 100 and headlined one of Taronga Zoo’s Twilight Concerts. If that’s not enough already, while he writes for the upcoming Something for Kate album, Paul Dempsey is pleased to announce three solo shows in WA for May 2018!
Having released his second solo album ‘Strange Loop’ to outstanding reviews and a top 5 ARIA chart debut, these solo shows will showcase Paul’s formidable talent as he takes to the stage on his own, offering fans intimate and stripped back interpretations of songs from ‘Strange Loop’ as well as his gold-selling debut ‘Everything Is True’, plus the odd well-chosen cover, something that Paul has a unique talent for. These shows promise to be an up close and personal evening with one of Australia’s most singular artists.

‘Dempsey is a gifted observer of the human condition’ – The Daily Telegraph
‘With Paul Dempsey, the tally for genius lyrics per second is positively baffling… one of Australia’s finest songwriters’ – Beat Magazine
