Huskisson singer songwriter & Producer Paul Greene has been a trailblazer on the Australian music scene. He Released his first album in 2000, his 8th, and most recent release came out in 2014, after his album ‘behind the Stars’ album was an ARIA finalist in 2012. Not bad for a self managed, independent artist.
Drawing inspiration from songwriting greats like Harry Neilson, Bill Withers, Randy Newman and Paul Kelly Greene’s music style effortlessly maneuvers between Folk, Americana, Blues, and Soul without coming too close to any of them, creating something unique and earning him national tour supports with the likes of Patty Griffin and Alvin ‘Youngblood’ Heart.
Greene moved from fanatical hobbyist to full time muso after a career in international Track and Field when he was ‘discovered’ by Midnight Oils Rob Hirst – Paul was mentored by and collaborated Rob, resulting in the Hirst & Greene album ‘in the stealth of summer’ and subsequent national tour in 2004.
After surviving a marriage break up and a case of identity theft, Paul has shape shifted yet again into a promoter with his ‘Sounds Delicious’ events. As well as playing in several bands, (including his teenage heroes Spy v Spy) Greene is working on developing music and artists alike in the Shoalhaven while he takes a break from his rigorous touring schedule.
