First, there was Johnny Diesel & The Injectors – a bolt of lightning that struck the Aussie rock scene. Then he went solo – the dawn of the platinum-selling, ARIA-winning solo era.A blues album with Chris Wilson in 1996, “Short Cool Ones”, signalled changing times ahead followed by a New York interlude producing an album under his own name.
Returning to Australia, Diesel embarked on a solo acoustic journey releasing the ARIA nominated live album “Singled Out” which inspired him to return to a more live approach in the studio with albums“Coathanger Antennae”&“Days Like These” following. This period also spawned subsequent live DVD releases, “The First Fifteen”, “Diesel & Strings” and “The Four Corners Live”.
In 2009 Diesel dug deeper back into the music that has made an indelible mark, releasing“Project Blues Saturday Suffering Fools” – a family affair with his father Hank and brothers Mike & Brian joining him on horns.
Stay tuned for a new album in 2011 “7 Axes to Grind” a celebration of his most enduring muse – THE GUITAR.
With a library of releases,and a shelf of ARIA Awards, Diesel has been called “the musician’s musician”. Say no more.
