JON STEVENS

BASED: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Jon Stevens has carved a reputation as one of the great vocalists of Australian popular music. Coming to prominence as the frontman of rock/power pop outfit Noiseworks in the late 80’s, Jon has enjoyed multiple weeks at the top of the Australian charts with Noiseworks’ debut self-titled album and the number one follow up Touch. Known for their anthemic melodic hooks and blistering live shows, Noiseworks sold 1.2 million records and solidified their reputation as one of the seminal Aussie rock bands of all time. With the release of Love versus Money, their third album, Noiseworks again peaked at number one after a sellout tour of the nation. The band called it a day in 1992 and Jon was cast as Judas in the blockbuster musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Starring Jon, Kate Ceberano, John Farnham, and Angry Anderson the show ran a mammoth 84 nights and was performed across Australia to more than a million people. Jon was now a household name among young rock fans and adult audiences alike. When the Superstar tour ended, Jon recorded what many believed to be his debut solo opus Are U Satisfied. Unbeknown to most on the western side of the Tasman, Jon’s first foray into recorded music occurred when he was just sixteen and living in New Zealand. He’d been working at the EMI record plant pressing vinyl and to relieve the monotony would sing up a storm with his co-workers, one of whom was his sister. They entered a talent quest and were spotted by an EMI rep, who signed Jon and released his first single, Jezebel.

But back to the 1990’s. The new rugby league code Super-League was engulfing Australia and Jon, one of the game’s biggest fans, was asked to record the theme song. A remake of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Two Tribes was released on BMG. A second single, I Wish It Would Rain was made to aid stricken farmers in a time of drought with all proceeds from the song going to their relief. With another solo record Circle and a Noiseworks reunion tour Jon saw out the decade. 2000 was Olympics year in Sydney and with INXS’s Jon Farriss, Jon released the single Carry the Flame which became the official theme for the Olympic Torch relay. His work with Jon Farriss and previous backing vocal sessions with INXS led to Jon joining the band after the untimely death of Michael Hutchence. After tours of the US, Latin America and Europe Jon was announced as INXS’s ‘seventh member’ and three years of global performing followed. In late 2003 Jon’s desire to create new music resulted in his resignation from INXS and commencement of work on an album which has redefined this eclectic artist’s musical direction. A reflection on his 25 years in the music biz, Ain’t No Life for the Faint Hearted is a return to Jon’s soul/R+B roots and amalgamates the talents of some new guest artists with the skills of some of the most experienced producers in the R+B world. Ain’t No Life for the Faint Hearted was released in Australia on November 7, 2004.
