14 & 15 July 2017
Jon Stevens is recognised as one of the most talented rock musicians to emerge from Australia in recent memory. He has had phenomenal success as a solo artist, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the charts in Australia, and as the lead singer of major rock acts, Noiseworks, INXS after the death of his friend Michael Hutchence, and the Dead Daisies. In 2016 he joined forces with legendary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) to record a new album, Starlight.
Jon Steven’s new album Starlight bursts with a soulful artistry and honesty that’s rare and borders on extinction today. The title track has an unforgettable hook and is an instant classic. Vivid lyrics fuel his performance on “Feel Like Letting Go,” “Scars” and “Devil In My Heart”. A playful flirtation is set to a steamy soul beat on “Something ‘bout You”. The first single “Hold On” is classic powerhouse Jon Stevens.
All of the songs are co-written with Dave Stewart, co-founder of the Grammy-winning duo Eurythmics, who also produced the album as well as played guitar.
Different as they are, each track on Starlight overflows with feeling, with candor, with an exuberance that comes from being plugged into life. Everything Stevens has survived, learned from, mastered and made leads to this album.
Stevens stands virtually alone in the music scene, with a raw vocal power that won him attention first as a teenager and now as a veteran singer and songwriter. Time has toughened his delivery while tapping into his emotional wellsprings more than ever before.
