Paul Carrack is a soul man through and through, growing up in Sheffield when Motown, Stax and Atlantic were the Holy Trinity of chart music.

His roots are reflected in his latest solo album, Good Feeling. He will sing tracks from the CD when he performs at Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre next week.

Paul has many faces in the music industry, he owns his own record label, he is a recording and touring artist, a sought-after songwriter and the creator of a back catalogue of huge hits for other people including Love Will Keep Us Alive by The Eagles, Tempted by Squeeze and How Long by Ace.

He has also been in numerous bands including Mike And The Mechanics, Ace, and for a short time Squeeze. Chris Drifford from Squeeze co-wrote some of the tracks on his new album.

“I more or less ploughed straight into getting this album done,’’ said Paul. “I wanted it upbeat and it felt that, and very fresh.’’ Paul produced the CD and played most of the instruments on it although his son, Jack, who is the drummer in his band, plays on some tracks.

It is a mix of original songs and covers including Bruce Springsteen’s If I Should Fall Behind which Paul sang on a BBC Radio 2 anniversary special about the Titanic.

The musician has worked with some top names over the years including a stint as a studio member of Roxy Music, and collaborations with Roger Waters, Ringo Starr and BB King.

On this tour Paul is supported by the Tinlin brothers Alex and Rolf who wrote the track Make It Right on the new album. “My son did a bit of percussion with them on a showcase and I popped round and thought they had something. They have got some really great songs.’’ Tinlin play down to earth acoustic pop music. Their new album Shade Of The Shadows was inspired by the rolling countryside of the Chiltern Hills with its scenic woodlands and occasional dark shadows.

They will be playing songs from the album when they support Paul on Monday, November 12 at the Wyvern Theatre from 7.30pm. Tickets are £28.50 and £38.50 on 01793 524481. - Flicky Harrison
