CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Somethin' Fast - Jonno Zilber

The music industry is a superman style “bizzarro world” full of drunkenness, strange girls, slow cars, anti-Semitic Icelandic fishermen, flying prosthetic legs and poker machines that are louder than the live band on the stage next to them. A world where as Tom Waits once said “the large print giveth and the small print taketh away” and musicians have to refer to themselves in the third person just to make them seem more important than they really are. That is where you will find me, my name is Jonno Zilber.

I have been a professional musician since the age of sixteen years and in my relatively short career I have played all around Australia and internationally. I’ve played everywhere from school yards to prison yards, outback pubs with topless dancers to churches with born-again preachers, run down bars with no electricity to large international festivals. Some of the bigger festivals that I have played include the Adelaide International Guitar Festival, National Folk Festival, Australian Blues Music Festival and the Himalayan Blues Festival.

I have gigged with some big names in Australian music and shared the stage and recorded with some of Australia’s most respected blues musicians including Lloyd Spiegel, Geoff Achison, Chain and the late Dutch Tilders.
