There is no question; John Williamson is a musical icon of Australia. His name is firmly cemented in the culture and fabric of the country he loves. His impressive career now spans more than forty five years and he has survived and soared in the entertainment industry whilst most of his ‘colleagues’ have not.
To his credit are unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads that have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed. He is honest and open with all he does.
Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he is one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.
Inducted into the ARIA HALL OF FAME in 2010 and the recipient of more awards than he cares to mention, there is no question that JOHN WILLIAMSON is the real deal, stands by what he represents and is unashamedly proud of the country he loves. For this artist, whilst the awards are a nice recognition, there is no doubt it is the reaction from his audience that is the most important.
Along his journey he has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured three ARIA Awards, 25 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales to name just some of the recognition he has earnt.
He continues to be at the forefront of significant events in Australia, presenting the voice of Australia when it is needed most. Accolades and awards though have never been a huge deal to John Williamson; it has always been about the fans to the ever humble ex-farmer. Even after what he has achieved, or what he has been invited to be a part of, he remains nonchalant about it all.
You can call him what you want, Mallee Boy, True Blue or just plain Fair Dinkum; but there is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry, John Williamson is truly an Australian icon.
