Paul Carrack is not a name that instantly comes to mind when thinking of the greatest UK singer songwriters.
However, with songs such as Satisfy My Soul, Tempted and The Living Years Carrack is without doubt one of the best.
Having made many visits to Suffolk, in earlier days with Squeeze and Mike + The Mechanics, Paul and his first class band still have a huge following.
The packed audience at the Ipswich Regent, on Saturday evening, were in awe from the moment Paul stepped on stage.
No fanfare, no gimmicks – just first class music from beginning to end.

Opening the show with Another Cup of Coffee, Satisfy My Soul, Eyes of Blue and Watching Over Me you soon understand why the BBC dubbed him ‘The Man with the Golden Voice’.
Followed by a sublime acoustic set with one of my favourites That’s All That Matters to Me, written about his daughter who went off travelling.

Every song is sung with meaning, the light and sound were perfection and the six band members, including his son Jack, must be some of the best musicians in the country.
The finale included crowd favourites How Long and Over My Shoulder finishing off a perfect evening.
A mention must be given to support act Sarah Munro, a very talented 20 year old singer songwriter. One to watch out for.
