Kelly has also achieved many awards for his editing work, including Cannes Silver and Bronze Lions.
Kelly’s music has also been well received. For example, Thom Jurek wrote about Kelly’s album Soundings in Film, “His moving sound constructions are full of emotions and moods -- not all of them pleasant -- and his takes on funk, rock, and blues are not journeyman, but those of a musician who takes these art forms seriously and seeks to represent them accurately in his utterances". Frank O. Gutch Jr, also wrote about Kelly’s album Evolution In Film, and gave glowing context to his work as outlined in the following, “Paul Kelly knows what music is. He knows that it can be a setup, a climax, or an anticlimax. He knows the value of music applied to other media. More than that, he knows music.  Not at all unlike a classical composer or even the rock band which plays beyond the fringe, he creates music for a reason”.
