MUSICIANS IN ISOLATION: DINO JAG

Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips catches up with South Australian vocalist, singer, songwriter and producer Dino Jag to chat about his infectious new single ‘Can’t Stand Still’, his gear and his work with the Weekend Warriors program.

South Australian music identity Dino Jag first launched onto the international music arena in 2005 with his unique cover of the 70’s classic, “Play that Funky Music.” The song burned up the charts worldwide, reaching number 8 in Australia and number 34 in Denmark and hit many radio playlists. He then hit the international spotlight again with the release of his song “Calling All The Saints” breaking all records to become the #1 most purchased song on the “Music For Good” program for Oxfam America. With over 3,500 artists from around the world represented on the chart this was quite an achievement and a great testament to his songwriting ability. Dino was also nominated “Best Male Vocalist” for three consecutive years at the South Australian Music Industry Awards (SAMIA) while fronting Adelaide funk/rock band Stolen Waters. He has shared the stage with some heavy hitters in the industry including, Steve Vai, Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi),Sammy Hagar (Van Halen), Adelaide & Queensland Symphony Orchestras, James Morrison, Steve Vai (David Lee Roth / Whitesnake), Richard Max, Daryl Braithwaite and Ian Moss. His vocal ability, songwriting flare and production style have also given Dino the opportunity to work on recording projects with Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney Band), Alan Gorrie (Average White Band), Mark King (Level 42) and Carmen Grillo (Tower Of Power).
