Paul Cartwright

“Music is in my blood, I can’t get it out” Maybe it was that he was born a stone’s throw away from Cold Chisel’s famous old haunt, The Largs Pier Hotel in Adelaide. If so, it has held him in good stead.


Paul Cartwright has been a Professional Electric Bassist since 1986, and has worked with many artists and performers both nationally and internationally, and in a wide array of musical genres. His eclectic musical taste has seen him perform with the likes of…..


Brian Cadd (Axiom, The Groop)
Glenn Shorrock (Little River Band)
David Bridie (Not Drowning, Waving)
The Brewster Brothers (The Angels)
John Schumann (Redgum)


In the areas of music and art, he has contributed to films and television such as….


Bran Nue Dae (Jessica Mauboy, Dan Sultan, Missy Higgins)
Underbelly Badness
The Straits
The Circuit
Bondi Rescue


Paul is also a multi-instrumentalist, and has also recorded both solo and group albums, as well as in the area of sound design composition (Adelaide Dance Theatre). All of these diverse musical genres have made the journey extremely interesting and rewarding.


What Paul brings to the table is a solid foundation of both ear training and theory. His experiences in music have been wide reaching, and in that, the musician has to be extremely flexible and creative.
