Bio

Music is in Jolyon’s genes; He draws great inspiration from some of the best ‘Piano Men’ of modern times, Billy Joel, Harry Connick Jr, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Stevie Wonder, and others. His style remains uniquely ‘Jolyon’: a gifted tunesmith who writes strong, punchy lyrics that touch on a range of political, social and personal issues. His hooks, melodies and catch cries get you singing along and his passionate delivery draws you in and takes you for an exciting and provocative ride.
Supporting and playing for other artists over the past 4 years Jolyon’s musical
dexterity grew steadily and he quickly became no stranger to the stage. With work for Afro Moses, Ultra Swing Lounge, Studio4 and various blues, stage and cover bands. His work has taken him across the country from “The Extreme Games” on the Gold Coast, The Basement in Sydney, to national band championships in Tasmania, Adelaide and everywhere in-between. After being a finalist in Newcastle ABC Music awards in 05 and being a finalist in MATS junior songwriter awards the previous year, Jolyon began to pursue his own ability as a band leader and song writer.
The Jolyon Briggs Band has gaining momentum and receiving rave reviews for their live shows.
