Country Folk Blues Originals

Melbourne, Australia


I am a Melbourne (Australia) based solo* singer-songwriter and session musician (harmonica). I am known for original songs and harmonica playing in blues, country, folk, etc. Music has to have emotion, a story of sorts, use real language and an occasional touch of humour. You will find that here in my songs plus some videos of various quality. I began writing at 18, hooked up with the Melbourne Folk scene in the early 1980s before family and work took over; started playing in blues outfits in 1997 and returned to singing and playing originals 2010. I played harmonica with the late Cameron Holmes & The Blues Dudes and guested with the late Alan Kearns' in his Fire Cats. I am grateful for being invited to join others on stage, join bands and provide harmonica in studio sessions.

Thanks to Bro. James Dean, Peter Jenkins, John Shorter, David Heath, Jim Dowling, Jimmy Lavarnos (Jimmy Deadman Communion), Geoff Hardwick (Wolfegang), Cameron Holmes and the Blues Dudes and Daemos Griffin & Fringe Dwellers.
Special thanks to Melbourne music legend Sean Kelly for his generous encouragement at the beginning, to Mark Gardner, Antonio Signorelli, Garry Hollow, Ian Maddick and Simon Bunyeviich and every one in the supportive Melbourne music community of performers and audiences. Performing for you and with you is an honour and a special thrill.

Finally, thank you Susan, my partner, for your encouragement and putting up with a musician all these years. I love you.
Note: I use the stage name John Hunter COMBO to allow for the periodic formation of bands and to differentiate me from the many other John Hunters on the internet.
