Paul Dempsey (Something For Kate)

Wed 31 August 2016

Paul Dempsey is the six-foot-six guy out front of Something For Kate, whose very first single was about escaping to the family garage to build model planes and listen to heavy metal. His family moved often, so by the time he was 18 he’d attended ten different schools, relying on his love of guitar to make friends and form bands.

Paul regresses with Barry Divola and plays Daddy Cool, Tori Amos, Sonic Youth and more. Listen to his interview now:
