Jon English is one of few Australian performers who have successfully combined a career in so many genres of music, television, and stage.
From the early 70’s in the demanding role of Judas in Australia’s first and enormously successful production of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, to his Logie winning performance as the convict Jonathan Garrett in the TV mini series, ‘Against the Wind’, together with countless return seasons as the dashing Pirate King in ‘Pirates of Penzance’ and the lovable Bobby Rivers in the TV sitcom, ‘Altogether Now’, Jon has contributed immeasurably to the performing arts for nearly four decades.
With no less than 16 music albums to his credit, including the self penned rock opera ‘Paris’, any attempt to list his many achievements in this short space would only result in copious sins of omission. His many accolades include multiple Logie, Aria, TV Week, Countdown, RAM Magazine, Melbourne Critics Green Room, AFI and MO awards, just to name a few.
A prolific songwriter, experienced screen composer, and a popular actor with wide community recognition and critical public acclaim, Jon is one of Australia’s most successful, loved, and enduring recording and performing artists.
He is currently producing and performing in his latest hit production, “The Rock Show” – a spectacular 10-piece theatre spectacular honouring 60’s and 70’s classic rock music.
