Bio

Jonathon Holmes is a songwriter, pianist and actor from Sydney, Australia. His musical comedy 'Three in the Bed' has had two Sydney seasons since 2017, reviewers hailing it "terrific fun: cheeky, sexy, laugh out loud... full of heart" and "a success". He released his debut EP 'Plutonese' of quirky piano-pop in 2014, with film clips for 'Play Your Games' and 'Get Your Hands (Off Your F***ing Phone)'. Jonathon's acting roles include Berger in 'Hair' (Exclaim); Hewson/Downer in 'Keating!' (Birdie); Tobias in 'Sweeney Todd' (AIM) and director of 'The Fantasticks' (Exclaim). Refusing to grow up, he is the host and pianist of 'Mickey's Jazz Club', swinging Disney songs regularly at The Newsagency. If you take a Carnival cruise, you may just find him playing at the piano bar. He holds a Bachelor of Music (Music Theatre) from the Australian Institute of Music.
