Paul Ah Chee: A Life Travelled Through 6 Decades

6 - 10 Sep 2022

This year, Central Australian singer-songwriter Paul Ah Chee releases his debut solo EP, Nowhere To Hide, a six-track compilation straight from the heart. Paul's music is a reawakening of the consciousness of Australia.

This is an opportunity to spend an evening with Paul Ah Chee.

Paul began his music journey as a young boy, and in due course he formed the renowned Mparntwe/Alice Springs band, AMUNDA, in the late 80s. Over a ten-year period, the band enjoyed great success performing at major national festivals including Big Day Out, Sing Loud Play Strong, Survival, Barunga, Adelaide Fringe, Port Fairy and Moomba Festival, where they eventually disbanded in 1997.

After this, Paul took a hiatus from music, settling down in the Red Centre to support his family, community and land, until his passions were reignited in 2019. His desire to resurrect his music journey has led to the release of his EP through his independent record label, Ngala Music.

Best described as contemporary Australian soulful rock, Nowhere To Hide features Paul’s talents as a powerfully evocative lyricist, singer, guitarist and composer. In this record, Paul looks deeply at the struggles of depression and anxiety, drawing on personal and collective experiences of suicide in his communities, coming to terms with his own journey as someone who has faced a lifetime of adversity.

Paul reflects on attachment and connection to land, identity and experiences of trauma, finding ways to reframe and express these in a positive light. The record is a tribute to understanding where you have come from to move forward, presenting yourself as you are – with nowhere to hide.
