Money Killed Jonny


"Miles Davis meets Midnight Oil"
There's an attitude that gives a real edge to the smooth sounds of arch top guitars, sax and trumpet. The result is Soul, Psychedelic Jazz, Blues and Roots with exploration of World beats, rhythms and melodic twists.

Diverse, engaging and eternally questioning, Money Killed Jonny critique social and political convention, money, love, war and consumerism.

Vocals, Guitar, Trumpet / Steve Robinson

Percussion / Matt Bourne Vocals, Percussion / Lenore Lovegrove

Cool Hand

by Money Killed Jonny

“Love it! Think I listened to it 5 times straight haha… I seriously did.” Rene Doebritz

An inspired coming together of Roots, Jazz, Blues, Soul and World. 

Cool Hand has been so well received in Australia that the first run sold out. As testimony to its surprising broad appeal the album has been picked up by Adult Contemporary and Jazz radio stations such as ABC FM and 89.7 Eastside FM, and also indie rock/pop stations such as FBi FM.
