Streetlight Records

2010 album from the Australian guitarist and his bandmates, their first studio offering in three years since the much acclaimed Grand National. April Uprising is John's most focused, diverse and accessible album to date, showcasing innovative sounds from the trippy steel drum detail on 'Take Me' to the roaring radio chorus of 'To Look Like You'; the tender ache of 'Steal It' and 'Fool for You' to the rustic Folk of 'Ragged Mile' and the hysterical Rock attack of 'C'mon Now', to the single, a Rock Disco classic 'Close to You' where John let's rip with the electric Telecaster. Between the epic opening track 'Revolution' and a whispered acoustic coda 'A Star is Born', dedicated to John's son, April Uprising is an album that combines the personal, the political and the musically memorable with skill and passion.
