‘The Peter Allen Songbook’ is a tribute to great Australian songwriter of such hits as ‘Arthur’s Theme’, ‘Don’t Cry Out Loud’ & ‘I Honestly Love You’.  John toured Australia in a live show that promoted the album.  The idea of showcasing the songs of Peter Allen in a live concert and recording came after years of John being asked to perform his songs and his great love of the Peter’s music and lyrics.

‘Tribute’ is a recording featuring songs written by some of the greatest American song-writiers of all time.  Dorothy Fields, Harry Warren, Cole Porter, to name a few, are given a new and heart-felt treatment by this very experienced theatre performer.  John also added a ballad that he penned while on tour in Asia with a production of ‘Cats’.  ‘I Miss You Much’ captures the loneliness of being on tour, put into words and music.
