diesel – the man voted Australia's best male artist is scheduled for a special 2 night solo-engagement at Hard Rock Hotel – Bali Wednesday and Thursday, April 20-21. 2005.

Making his musical debut in Perth, Western Australia in 1987 with the band Johnny Diesel and the Injectors the group gained instant recognition and an ARIA award for the "Best New Talent" and "Best Selling Album of The Year" selling more than a quarter million copies in a album containing the hits "Don't Need Love, Soul Revival, Cry In Shame" and "Looking For Love."

One mini-album later, Johnny said good-bye to the Injectors in 1991 emerging as a solo artist with the album "Hepfidelity" that earned him ARIA's "Best Album" and "Best Male Artists" awards in 1992 with the singles "Come To Me, Tip Of My Tongue, Man Alive" and "One More Time." A consistent hit-maker, albums released in 1993 and 1994 hit platinum and saw ARIA again name the Rocker "Best Male Artist" in 1993.

Before departing on a 5-year journey of self-discovery playing New York's music scene in 1996, diesel did a departure of another kind – cutting an album of blues with Chris Wilson.

Signing with the ill-fated Mammoth Label in the U.S.A. he recorded a masterful album ironically titled "Soul Lost Companion" which, due to corporate buy-outs between record companies, was never released in the U.S.A..

No doubt disillusioned with the U.S. music scene, diesel returned back home to Australia in 2001 and produced "Hear" - his first studio-album in 7 years. Hungry for the diesel sound the single "Getta Kick" was an instant hit among Australian music listeners.

Two Nights Only

diesel appears in a special solo performance on the Hard Rock Hotel's Centerstage on Wednesday and Thursday, April 20 & 21, 2005. Performances begin at 9:30 p.m. and a first drink charge applies.
