Paul Field - Love Songs For Lonely People CD
Former singer for The Cockroaches first-ever solo album - ‘Love Songs For Lonely People’ is a combination of new originals and covers of songs special to Paul Field.
“Some of these songs I’ve been singing since I was a teenager. The common element with all of these songs is that I love them, and it was always a desire to record them one day” says Paul.
Featured on the album are friends Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Ria Pirelli, Chris E Thomas and Elly-May Barnes. Featured on all tracks playing the guitar is Bill Chambers.
The majority of ‘Love Songs For Lonely People’ was recorded at Jimmy Barnes own studio in Sydney and is co-produced by Paul’s brother John, who wrote and co-wrote some of the biggest hits for The Cockroaches and The Wiggles and co-wrote ‘This Way to Love and Happiness’ & ‘Alison (You’re The One)’.
Paul Field was made a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2020 Australia Day Honours for "significant service to the arts, particularly to children's entertainment, and as a supporter of charitable endeavours." His career began in the Sydney band The Cockroaches, formed alongside his two brothers Anthony & John, Tony Henry and Jeff Fatt. The band produced four albums, one of which ‘The Cockroaches’ sold over 100,000 copies and is certified Platinum. After disbanding in 1991, Anthony formed The Wiggles with Murray Cook, Greg Page and Jeff Fatt. A few years later Anthony asked Paul to manage The Wiggles, a role he assumed for over 24 years, official stepping down in 2020. During this time Paul produced and directed over 40 video titles and many of the TV Series for The Wiggles.
