Paul Kelly - All Those Smiling Faces
"'All those smiling faces' fitted the chords, then it felt like, alright, I'm on the way to a song" - Paul Kelly
Paul's song is inspired by poets from England and Poland, Paul's family and the concept of heredity.
The first thing Paul did was tune the One Guitar down a tone.

About the guitar
It's a Gibson J45 Vintage Sunburst, a model nicknamed "The Workhorse".
First released in 1942 it has a storied history with many famous artists relying on its mahogany construction along with renowned "full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection".
