The BBC’s ‘man with a golden voice’, Paul Carrack is playing the Corn Exchange
A stalwart of British pop, once described by the BBC as ‘the man with the golden voice’, Paul Carrack has been churning out hits since the mid-1970s, when he found fame as the frontman of Ace. He went on to play in bands including Roxy Music and Squeeze, before joining forces with Paul Young to form Mike + The Mechanics, well loved for hits including Silent Running, The Living Years and of course, Over My Shoulder. The Sheffield singer songwriter has also enjoyed a fruitful solo career, with a back catalogue that features tracks like How Long? and When You Walk in the Room. His distinctive, soulful voice has won him fans across the globe, including many fellow musicians – his songs have been performed The Eagles, Diana Ross and Tom Jones and he is constantly in demand as a session keyboardist, having recorded and toured with Elton John, Van Morrison, Roger Waters, BB King, and most recently on Eric Clapton’s world tour. “I can’t wait to get back out on the road again in 2016”, he says of his latest series of shows. “I love touring in the UK and I’ve chosen 34 of my favourite venues to perform in.”
Catch him at Cambridge Corn Exchange on 4 February. Tickets start at £31.
