  Paul Carrack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paul Carrack (born April 22, 1951 in Sheffield, England) is a British keyboardist, singer and songwriter.
Carrack was the keyboard player for Warm Dust, and occasionally played other instruments as well, but he was not the band's lead vocalist.
In 2004, the band was officially re-named Mike and the Mechanics and Paul Carrack.

 TrouserPress.com :: Paul Carrack
In one of rock's circuitous success stories, Paul Carrack was the lead-singing keyboardist in Ace, a pub-rock outfit before "pub-rock" became a rock press sub-genre — strictly background music for soaking up suds.
Carrack and Lowe then formed Noise to Go, a Rockpilish arrangement in which the two alternated top billing.
Carrack next found employment with Mike and the Mechanics (Mike Rutherford's extra-Genesis sideline), and wound up singing strangely anonymous-sounding lead on that group's big hit, "Silent Running." This exposure got Carrack a 1987 touring-band job with Roger Waters after Pink Floyd's split.

Paul then followed this song up with another unexpected treat, an acoustic version of a song he performed with Squeeze (as he announced “This is a song I recorded with the lads who are playing across the road in a few days”) — this was Loving You Tonight.
This was performed excellently by Paul, who was still alone on stage, before Paul had even performed the track a woman in the audience let out an excited squeal once she learned what track he was about to do.
Paul came on, thanked the audience for being great and the people at Ronnie Scott’s for having him for tonight and the next 3 nights, and announced they would do one final song that everyone had to sing the chorus to, not too hard when the song is Oh Oh Oh My My My.

Paul then chatted casually with the audience as he switched to electric guitar, speaking of his four children and how he hoped that family wars wouldn’t break out over the fact that My Kind was written for only one of them, when his now teenage daughter was a baby.
Paul stood in the centre of the stage holding a mike, admiring the magnificent talent of his friend but also looking a bit surprised, though happily so, that the piano intro was continuing for quite so long.
Paul then said he had decided to delve into some self-indulgence—it was his party, after all—and he and Argent performed a gorgeously smooth and soulful version of Georgia On My Mind that seemed to leave the Hall breathless and would make Van Morrison, who also enjoys performing that song live, fairly jealous.

 Get Ready to ROCK! Review of CD album by Mike and The Mechanics and Paul Carrack called Rewired
Sadly original co-vocalist Paul Young is no longer with us, so Paul Carrack is left to carry the torch in the vocal department, and significantly now has joint billing.
Carrack is one of our best vocalists but his own solo career has been low key.
In between, the album is inoffensive but Carrack and co hardly break sweat, save perhaps for the opener 'One Left Standing' which has the requisite urgency that is sadly lacking elsewhere.

 REVIEW   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Carrack makes it clear on this first track and on "Time to Let Go" which follows it that in order to make the most of today, you have to let go of yesterday.
Carrack's distinctive blue-eyed soul vocals are the perfect match for the gospel-stylings of the title track, on which additional backing vocalists provide a church choir feel and big gospel finish.
Carrack slows it down again on "Close to Me," "It Goes Without Saying" and "If You'd Ever Needed Someone" but pulls out all the stops on the rousing closer "Some Kinda Love" on which he gives a performance that would make Steve Winwood take some notes.

After spending eight years working with Mike + the Mechanics, among other bands and side projects, Paul Carrack returned in 1996 with Blue Views.
Because Carrack's side projects since the mid-'80s have all been variations on slick but soulful pop-rock, it's not a surprise that Blue Views sounds like it could have been released in 1991.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, since Carrack's vocals are terrific and the sound is appealingly polished.
