John Durr – Black Market Music founder, Producer and A & R manager, first encountered the blues in his youth in the form of T-Bone Walker, which sparked a lifelong passion for the genre. He kept his focus on the goal of producing and distributing blues music throughout a variety of roles within the music industry. He looked to Berry Gordy of Motown Records, Leonard Chess of Chess Records and Sam Phillips of Sun Records for inspiration…

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Black Market Music began in 1991 with the aim of bringing international blues and roots music to the Australian public through an import and retail business. The wealth of talent on local soil soon found them shifting focus to producing and releasing albums by local blues, roots and folk artists.
