Rick Astley @ Paloznak Jazz Picnic, 3 August
If you think you know Rick Astley, think again. The much-loved multi-million selling 80s icon returned to our ears in 2018 with the release of his stellar album ‘Beautiful Life’. Capturing the hearts of the nation, Rick impressively wrote every song, played every instrument and sang every note himself.

It was an album about his obsession with music, his love for his wife and family, and his love of life itself. It is called ‘Beautiful Life’ for a very good reason. “It has been a beautiful life,” says Rick. “Maybe it didn’t start out that way. There’s been tough times. But I’ve got so much to be thankful for. How many people get a chance to live out their dreams, not just once, but twice?”

Rick Astley’s story is an extraordinary music business tale. He was a lonely boy from a broken home in a small town whose only escape route was singing. “Music saved my life, really,” he says.

“My mum and dad had a horrible break up when I was very young. It was quite traumatic, if I’m honest. Singing got me out of the house, it got me into a choir, then it got me into a band and finally got me out into the world. It’s put me in so many amazing places it’s ridiculous, just because as a kid I found I had a voice.”
