While still in his teens, American born guitarist/singer Mark Lizotte was snatched from his bar band in Perth and launched on to the Australian charts as the leader of Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. A career was born and now some 30 years later Diesel is  still  rocking  Saturday  nights  around  the  nation.  Johnny  Diesel  and  the  Injectors  moved  from  Perth  to  establish  themselves  in  Sydney  in  1987.  They  quickly  became  known  for  Diesel's  extraordinary  versatility  on  the  guitar  and  his  rich,  soulful  voice.  The  debut  album  shipped  platinum  and  entered  the  charts  at  #2.  It was  the  biggest-selling  album  of  1989.  

‘Hepfidelity’,  Diesel's  first  album  under  his  own  name  in  1992  was  a  mega-platinum  smash  and  earned  him  ARIAs  for  Best  Album  and  Best  Male  Talent.  He  is  one  of  only  a  select  few  Artists  to  win  a  Best  Male  Talent  ARIA  three  times  (along  with  John  Farnham,  Alex  Lloyd  and  Gotye).  

The  next  albums  –‘The  Lobbyist’  and  ‘Solid  State  Rhyme’  confirmed  his  status  as  one  of  Australia's  most  significant  recording  artists.  A  non-stop  six  years  that  included  extensive  touring,  recording  and  starting  a  family  was  capped  in  1996  with  the  ‘Short  Cool  Ones’  project  that  he  cut  with  blues  harp  player  Chris  Wilson.  Diesel  then  scored  a  residency  at  the  prestigious  club  Arlene's  Grocery.  He  was  discovered  all  over  again,  this  time  by  Mammoth  Records  who  teamed  Diesel  with  legendary  producers  Jerry  Harrison  and  Gavin  Mackillop  for  the  ‘Lost  Soul  Companion’  album.  In 2002,  Diesel  and  family  moved  back  to  Australia.  He  assembled  a  band  and  also  began  gigging  as  a  solo  artist.  The  2005  album  ‘Singled  Out’  put  Diesel  back  on  the  radio  and  gave  him  a  hankering  to  pump  up  the  volume  again.  It  also  marked  a  new  phase  in  Diesel's  career,  and  time   for  a  new  album.  2006's  ‘Coathanger  Antennae’  was  recorded  in  two  months  with  Diesel  backed  by  bassist  Richie  Vez  and  drummer  Lee  Moloney.    Back  in  Australia,  and  back  on  a  roll,  the  albums  and  the  tours  kept  coming  -  original  albums  adorned  with  radio  hits  followed  with  ‘Days  Like  These’  in  2008  and  ‘Let  It  Fly’in  2013  interspersed  with  his  now  signature  original  and  masterful  renditions  of  rock,  soul  and  blues  classics  via  the  themed  albums  ‘Saturday  Suffering  Fools’  in  2009,  ‘Under  The  Influence’  in  2011,  and  the  triumphant  ‘Americana’  album  in  2016.  Diesel  is  celebrating  30  years  in  music  with  a  newly  curated  collection  of  songs.  

The  new  album  Diesel  30  –  The  Greatest  Hits is  out  now  and  features  14  Top  40  hits,  including  Tip  Of  My  Tongue,  Come  To  Me  and  Soul  Revival...  plus  the  new  song,  Give  Me  Saturday  Night.  Continuing  to  light  up  Saturday  Nights  on  this  special  30th  anniversary  tour,  Diesel  has  now  added  a  bunch  of  solo  shows  to  his  Give  Me  Saturday  Night  National  Tour.    Don’t  miss  Diesel  performing  a  'best  of'  collection  of  tracks  in  solo  mode  in  venues  across  the  country.
