Wayne Jury is more than just the blues. Recognised as a multitalented tunesmith (he’s been signed to the legendary J Albert and Son Publishing, home of AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Easybeats et al since 1994), his versatility sees him at ease with an ensemble or solo, delving deep into funk, soul, jazz and rock to combine all these genres with his distinctive vocals and performance. This adaptability hasn’t gone unrecognised by his peers – fronting rock bands across Australia since he was 16, he’s been called on by some of Australia’s most iconic bands to front their gigs when they’ve been missing a lead singer. In demand to perform several nights a week, his interest is also in putting this extensive experience back into the music community by supporting young artists who face the same challenges he confronted when starting out, reflected by his facilitation of acclaimed mentoring programs Blues Boot Camp, Youth In Blues, Emerging Artist Grants, as well as teaching and advising festivals and councils as an advocate for the advancement of local and live music.
“Wayne Jury is one of the best blues singers in this country.”
