THE CAT EMPIRE are excited to be playing Summer Of Soul for the first time in 2015. The Cat Empire are proudly born and bred Melbourne musicians, and love an opportunity to play regional Victoria shows. The band played their 1000th show together back in March 2014, and have spent the rest of the year touring the world, taking their unique style of festival music to big stages around the globe. Now a fully independent band, these guys released their album Steal The Light in 2013, debuting top 20 on charts in 6 countries. The Empire Horns will be along for the show, the band have some new music in the set, and plenty of old tunes too. Dancing shoes essential.

Following the recent releases of his groundbreaking song cycles, ‘Spring and Fall’ and ‘Conversations with Ghosts’, Paul Kelly is pleased to announce another innovative chapter in his long-standing career. Earlier this year, Paul assembled his touring band and an exciting group of singers to record a set of new songs as well as one old classic: The tracks were performed live in the studio by Clairy Browne, Vika and Linda Bull, Dan Sultan, Kira Puru and himself. Dubbed ‘The Merri Soul Sessions’, the album will be released in December 2014.

See Paul Kelly, with Dan Sultan, Clairy Browne, Kira Puru, Vika and Linda Bull, and all the musicians on the album perform the album and new songs live for the very first time at Mossvale Park’s Summer of Soul on January 10th 2015.
