Dino Jag is a South Australian treasure. His unmistakable voice and performance energy first received national recognition as lead vocalist for funk/rock band Stolen Waters when they entered the national charts in 1997 with their reworking of the Stevie Wonder classic “Superstition.”
He was then launched into the international music arena with his unique cover of the 70’s classic, “Play that Funky Music.” The song burned up the dance charts worldwide, reaching number 8 in Australia and number 34 in Denmark and became a radio favorite on many playlists.
In 2013 Dino re-emerged onto the international spotlight 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.
In November 2016 Dino Jag released his “Breakthrough” EP to international critical acclaim. Recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood with Grammy Award Winning Producer Jeff Bova at the helm and featuring some of the best in the business, Aaron Sterling (Drums – John Mayer), Corey Britz (Bass – Bush), Tim Pierce (Guitar – Bruce Springsteen), Jeff Bova (Keyboards – Michael Jackson), Carroll
Hatchet (Backing Vocals – Bette Midler) & Bernard Fowler (Backing Vocals – The Rolling Stones), the album has become a major milestone in Dino’s career.
“The award-winning vocalist truly taps into his pure nature with ‘Breakthrough’ and you see his musical
vision flow to life.” Sydney Paschall – Compose Yourself Magazine
“The combined musical forces make Dino Jag an absolute powerhouse. His brilliant sound is brought to life with a captivating vibrancy that pulls you in listen after listen.” Jane Lambert – Modern Mystery
Dino has shared the stage with some heavy hitters in the industry including, 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 and songwriting flare 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).
Dino Jag is also known for his high-impacting “Stripped Back” performances where he wields an acoustic guitar and showcases his songs, along with some classic covers, with captivating soulful arrangements that also feature Virgil Reality on trumpet and Nick Romano on drums adding another dimension to the Dino Jag experience.
