Jon Stevens one of Australia most iconic rock singers talks about writing his new album 'Starlight' with Dave Stewart and Ringo Star on drums.

Jon has had phenomenal success as a solo artist, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the charts in Australia, and as the lead singer of major rock acts, Noiseworks, INXS after the death of his friend Michael Hutchence, and the Dead Daisies. The Dead Daisies, whose debut single, Lock and Load he wrote and produced with the legendary Slash on guitar, was an iTunes featured release.

In 2016 Jon joined forces with legendary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) to record a new album, Starlight.

Starlight bursts with a soulful artistry and honesty that’s rare and borders on extinction today. The title track has an unforgettable hook and is an instant classic with vivid lyrics fueling his performance on tracks like “Feel Like Letting Go”, “Scars” and “Devil In My Heart”. The lonely ballad “One Way Street” features Ringo Starr on drums. All of the songs are co-written with Dave Stewart, co-founder of the Grammy-winning duo Eurythmics, who also produced the album and played guitar on all tracks. The album was recorded in Blackbird Studios, Nashville and mixed by Chris Lord Alge. Different as they are, each track on Starlight overflows with feeling, with candour, with an exuberance that comes from being plugged into life. Everything Stevens has survived, learned from, mastered and made leads to this album, the first single from the album will be  'Hold On'.
