Jeff Apter

I'm the author of more than 20 books.
My work includes biographies of the Finn brothers, Johnny O’Keefe, the Bee Gees, Marc Hunter, ‘Shirley’ Strachan, Silverchair, John Farnham and Keith Urban. I've worked as a ghostwriter for musicians, sportsmen, diplomats and soldiers of fortune; I also spent four years on staff at Rolling Stone. I was the creative consultant for the Helpmann Award-nominated 2015 live production,
A State of Grace: The Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley.
Thanks to both The Australian and Readings for listing my biography of Angus Young, called High Voltage, as one of the most anticipated books of 2017. It will be on the shelves late August in Oz, early October in the UK and early 2018 in North America. I'll be launching the book at the Thirroul Writers Festival on August 25 and speaking with photographer Philip Morris at Rockdale Library on September 5. I'll be in Brisbane in mid October, talking about High Voltage and hosting a workshop at the Queensland Writers Centre. There's a profile of me in a recent Illawarra Mercury.
And a new, improved, Australia-only edition of my Jeff Buckley bio, A Pure Drop, is out now. You can read about the book at the Daily Review, The Guardian and A softcover edition of my John Farnham bio, Playing to Win, will be published in October 2017.
