Album Notes
Kelly Newton-Wordsworth is an award winning singer/songwriter,
activist and recording artist from Australia. For the last 13 years
she has been performing internationally. She is also a wife and
mother of three children and has spent many years farming
bio-dynamically (using no chemicals or artificial fertilisers) with
her family in Western Australia.

From the time of a “life changing” spiritual experience, where she
“gave” her life to serve God around 20 years ago (this story can be
found in “God stories” a now best selling book on,
Kelly began writing songs for the protection and the future of the
environment and humanity. Her song, 'What is happening to our
forests?' launched the campaign in her home state of Western
Australia, to save the last of the old growth Karri forests in the
world. Through years of dedicated campaigning by Kelly, her family
and a small group of committed people, one and a half million
hectares of forest has been saved and is now protected in perpetuity
by new legislation.

'A whale for the killing', a protest song she wrote to stop the
whaling, was used by Greenpeace in 1981in a film, 'The last whale',
to encourage the world to vote for a sanctuary for the whales in the
Antarctic. The video clip for this song can be seen at and there is now interest in the song from Kingsborough films, making a feature film about the founder of Sea Shepherd.

Her song, 'One world, one planet' won the "environmental song of the
year" for Australia in 2001.
This song is now being hailed by many people as a theme song for the
future of the planet.

In 2004 Kelly toured Germany, doing 30 two hour solo concerts in 29
cities. She was also invited as a headlining artist to the biggest
songwriter's festival in Europe, singing to around 30,000 people at
the Barden Treffen in Nurenberg. She received rave reviews from press
saying she was the highlight of the festival and was voted the best
artist by the "people's choice".

She sang in Ladakh in India at a World Peace concert there in 2005,
the first of it's kind in the history of India. She performed to an

audience of thousands, and was televised to around 1 billion people
throughout India and surrounding countries. She was the only Western
artist from this event to be invited afterwards to do another concert
especially for the Indian army. An Indian film maker shot a video
clip of one of her songs, "In your brown eyes", whilst she performed
for the children at the Tibetan refugee camp school.

With the arrival on the 18th January, 2006 of West Papuan people in a
small canoe on Australian shores, and claims of the perpetration of
“genocide” against the people, she wrote 'Song for West Papua'. Soon
after, she sang this song with Tara, in London and Ireland at
protests against the abuse of West Papuan human rights by the
Indonesian Military.

In 2007 Kelly moved to be based in Bangkok, and wrote 'Long live the
King of Thailand', along with many other songs about her experiences
and love for the people of Thailand. She is the only foreigner in the
history of Thailand to write and perform a song for His Majesty, and
then to perform at his 80th birthday celebrations. She received a
personal gift of thanks from King Bhumipol. She recorded 'Long live
the King of Thailand', put it on CD and Hello magazine sold out over
100,000 copies of the song in their magazine in a day.

In 2007, she also performed her environmental songs at one of the
"Live Earth" concerts in Los Angeles. From the strength of her
performance there she was invited by a group organising a “green”
event in Toronto, to perform with Al Gore and Sheryl Crow. Due to
unexpected circumstances she was unable to take part in that event.

In 2008 Kelly wrote and sang songs for the 'People's Alliance for
Democracy'(the PAD) in Thailand, the longest running peaceful protest
in the world, a stand against corruption and to bring about “true”
democracy. She and her eldest daughter Tara, again made history,
being the only foreigners to have sung on the PAD stage. In November
of 2008, she released her song, “Peace in Thailand”, throughout the
country, and signing a distribution deal for this CD single, with
Universal Records (Thailand).

She recently received confirmation from His Majesty's office, that
she may release her songs for the King of Thailand and also make her
own documentary about His Majesty's organic farm.

In early 2009, Kelly completed a new album, 'Gospel Gladness', which
is a collection of songs that she has written since she became a
Christian. This is her seventh album and it includes very personal
songs that she has written of her love for Jesus and her gratefulness
to God for the difference He has made in her life. She has arranged
and made psalms into songs, adapted a traditional Irish wedding
prayer and last but not least recorded one of her favourite songs,
'Amazing Grace'.

A number of Kelly's albums, 'For our planet', 'Changing Hearts',
'Lately I've been Changing' and the single of 'Long live the King of
Thailand' are already available world wide for downloading on CD Baby (, itunes, Amazon and other major digital downloading

'Gospel Gladness' is to be launched world wide in 2009. In March,
Kelly and Tara will sing for the PAD at a concert in Los Angeles.
