About Jon Matthews
I am basically a self taught guitarist and I have been writing songs and playing in bands, mostly as lead vocalist / guitarist, since I was about 17. I have been in many covers / original bands over the years, including Teaser, Overnight, After Hours, Ace, Y-Fronts (with Craig McLachlan)(didn't make it out of the garage) No Comment (with Mick Hart), Disguise The Limit, The Heat, Mal's Country Blues Band and Bitter Lemon. I also tried a bit of a stint with duos, one called Colouration. With some of these bands, in particular Ace and No Comment, we were blessed to have the opportunity to do support acts with the Ted Mulry Gang, Dynamic Hypnotics, The Divynals, Keith Urban, Darryl Braithwaite, Paul Norton, Jenny Morris, Mark Williams . . . . . . . . They probably don't remember, but I do. At the moment I am concentrating on recollecting and recording / re-recording all the songs I have written over the years. It is turning out to be quite a project - had to build the studio first.
