Bio

Johnny Hunter is equal parts unfiltered anarchy and cabaret. Matching high energy musicality with stagemanship that charms a crowd with ease, the band is a beast all its own as a performance unit. Individualistic and unashamedly fearless in their delivery, Johnny Hunter revels in each quirk, dark twist of eyeliner, slick back of a mullet and moan of a vocal.

As a group, they offer up a mirror to the changing times we live in through their music. In 2018’s ‘One Of A Kind’, ‘1995’, ‘Cult Classic’, and then 2019’s ‘Ashamed’ and ‘Pain & Joy’, the band demonstrates a raw response to navigating a world that is becoming more unhinged than ever. An unapologetic love for fiery, gut-punching punk energy, as well as pop songwriting to break a heart forms the foundation of their body of work, one that is still ever-changing as the band prepares for the release of their debut EP this year.

Named as one of Double J’s best on ground acts at BIGSOUND, the band has become a fast favourite around the country from sharing stages with artists including Jack White, Press Club, City Calm Down, and Kirin J Callinan.
