About Paul Hemphill

The past beats inside me like a second heart
John Banville, The Sea

Paul Hemphill is a British-born Australian songwriter, poet, and blogger.

An accountant by profession, he has been a manager, mentor and mediator. A long-time resident of Sydney, he is now living with his wife, Adele, in the middle of the forest in northern New South Wales where they spend much of their time in the great outdoors looking after their bush gardens.

His other interests include music, poetry, politics and history. He has had a lifelong passion for the history, politics and people of the Middle East. Over the years, through study and travel, he has acquired a working knowledge of standard and colloquial Arabic.

Currently, he uses his skills and interests as a volunteer helping the Humanitarian Settlement Service help refugees to settle in the Coffs Harbour region.

Listen to some of Paul’s songs on SoundCloud and YouTube. Search under Paul Hemphill or HuldreFolk (but ignore the Flemish death metal band of the same name).

Paul has assembled seven volumes of poetry and verse, and these can be read on this blog.
