One of the hardest working figures in modern music, Paul Carrack, is appearing at Cambridge Corn Exchange on January 31, as part of a tour to celebrate more than five decades in the music business.

The former vocalist of Mike and The Mechanics, and the voice behind world-wide hits such as ‘How Long’ by Ace, Squeeze’s ‘Tempted’ and, of course, the timeless classic ‘The Living Years’ Carrack is now firmly established as a solo performer.

Initially finding fame with Ace and Roxy Music, he has gone on to enjoy a successful career that spans 40 years, including guest appearances on over 60 albums, as well as writing for The Eagles, Diana Ross, Tom Jones, Michael McDonald and Jools Holland among others.

Over the past decade or so, Paul has worked increasingly in his own right on many solo albums; Satisfy My Soul (2000), Groovin’ (2001), It Ain’t Over (2003), Winter Wonderland (2005), Old, New, Borrowed and Blue (2007), I Know That Name (2008), A Different Hat with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (2010) and the current album Good Feeling which came out in September 2012.
