2007 - Paul Brady

Paul Brady



I live on the coast and have been playing guitar now for three years and writing songs for two. I love the emotion that a song can engender, the power of a small lyric that can provoke a large response in a listener. But most of all I love to play my own songs and step into the "zone".


Description of music

My music is pretty much eclectic country, with a blues influence. Apparently there a little bit of Leonard Cohen in there too. I like to write songs that tell stories and have little messages in them.

Who/What have been your main musical influences ?

My greatest influence would be Neil Young, and more recently Jack Johnson. 
Your greatest musical moment? Having someone cover one of my songs, he made a better job of it than me too. I think that's got to be one of the greatest compliments a musician can give another. It's happened twice now and it is such a buzz.
Your musical dream?

To write THAT song.

Your best recent listen?

Jenny Morris, a very laid back interpretation of her earlier stuff. Has quite a jazz influence, nice.  Jack Johnson - In between dreams.  I can't get enough of Jack.

Your thoughts about the Kapiti Live Music Club? I think the KLMC is a great place for people like me to be able to share their music. The members are all genuine musicians and very supportive people.
