Country Folk Blues Originals

Melbourne, Australia

I am a Melbourne (Australia) based solo* singer-songwriter and harmonica session musician.
I am known for original songs and harmonica playing in blues, country, folk, etc. You will find here songs and videos of various recording quality.
Music and songs are nothing without emotion. Mine tell a story using real language, images and a dash of humour.
I began writing at 18, hooked up with the Melbourne Folk scene in the early 1980, 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, Alan Kearns' Fire Cats, Jimmy Deadman Communion, The Fringe Dwellers, the Romantica Cafe Show Band and Mark Gardner. I often get invited to join others on stage, join bands and provide harmonica in studio sessions. I have provided harmonica remote working for Ireland's Cathal Finnegan.
Special thanks to Bro. James Dean, Peter Jenkins, John Shorter, David Heath, Jim Dowling, Sean Kelly for his generous encouragement at the beginning. Special thanks also to Melbourne music legend Mark Gardner, Antonio Signorelli, Garry Hollow, Ian Maddick 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.
Most of all 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 Hunter"s on the internet.
