Paul Costa

Wheels & Steel is the tough fourth album from Mallee-born musician Paul Costa. The album is hard hitting, raw and honest. Full of tough, electric guitar driven, commercial country songs set in the landscape of rural Australia

Eleven of the tracks were co-written by Paul, with collaborators Rod McCormack, Matt Scullion, Tamara Stewart and Drew McAlister; one is a gift from Drew McAlister and legendary songwriter Allan Caswell, and the remaining track is a barnstorming cover of the Joe Camilleri classic Chained To The Wheel.

The first single off the album Tractors & Bikes, which Paul wrote with Tamara Stewart and Drew McAlister, is an affectionate nod to Paul’s childhood on a Victorian farm. “On the farm there were two main ways to get to work on the property every day – you drove a tractor, or you rode a motorbike,” he says. “I remember riding the bike across the levy bank to other places – some I was allowed to ride to, and some I wasn’t. And I remember having tractor races with my brothers, all the time hoping Dad wouldn’t catch us. They are very fond memories.” (An exerpt from the Paul Costa website)
