It was the late Johnny Cash who stated quite openly that Aussie Entertainment legend Jade Hurley was the best act he had ever worked with and was quoted in the Irish Press as saying ... "If I wasn't who I am, I would find it very hard to follow him on any stage anywhere in the world ... he's one hell of a showman and entertainer this Aussie ... and boy, can he play that piano".
Jade Hurley first came to notice as a 14 year old singing in a talent quest in the beer garden of a Sydney hotel. Johnny O'Keefe saw enough to launch his career on the historic television program "Six O'Clock Rock" ... the rest is history.
Jade Hurley OAM, with more Gold, Platinum, and Double Platinum albums than he can count, forged a career that has left him with true legendary status in a tough and demanding industry.
From "Six O'Clock Rock" and "Bandstand" to his own regular segment on the ground breaking "Mike Walsh Show", he became an instant hit on Television New Zealand's "That's Country" ... followed in Australia by "Midday" with Ray Martin and Kerri Anne Kennerley on the NINE Network ... and Bert Newton on TEN. This incredible performer has always, over all of these years, been in huge demand.
Still, after sell-out tours of Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, USA, England and Europe, Jade performs to packed houses, audiences of all ages and to standing ovations. His "over the top" flamboyant costumes and performances coupled with his unique ability to mix his classic Rock n Roll hits with Country music, brings every audience to it's feet.
As well as being a headline act in his own right, Jade Hurley has toured with some of the all time greats including America's JOHNNY and JUNE CARTER CASH, DON WILLIAMS, BOXCAR WILLIE and WOODY HERMAN throughout Ireland, Europe, America, New Zealand and Australia.
Jade Hurley is, without doubt, the greatest showman/piano player Australia has ever produced ... and it is a fitting tribute to him that he has lived up to the tag bestowed on him by the great Johnny O'Keefe ...
