The inspiration for Australian singer-songwriter Dino Jag’s new release Can’t Keep Still was ironically the 2020 bans on public venue dancing in Australia. While recording the song during self-isolation in his home studio in Adelaide, Dino Jag put the call out to his supporters to send in video footage of themselves getting their iso-groove on to a sample of the unreleased song for a bit of socially distanced fun. Initially released as an exclusive ‘Facebook only’ music video the track immediately blew up with over 200k views and calls to make the song available for release. But Can’t Keep Still not only has a compelling background; it’s a compelling track, replete with unforgettable hooks, an undeniable feel and Dino’s extraordinary vocal. It’s a masterful slice of urban pop-funk that’s sure to please Dino’s legion of fans.
Dino’s musical career was first launched in 2005 when his unique cover of the 70’s classic, Play that Funky Music charted worldwide, reaching number 8 in Australia and number 34 in Denmark. He has been nominated ‘Best Male Vocalist’ for three consecutive years at the South Australian Music Industry Awards (SAMIA) and hit the international spotlight again with the release of his song Calling All The Saints breaking all records to become the #1 most purchased song on the Music For Good program for Oxfam America.
More recently he gained international recognition with his critically acclaimed Breakthrough EP in 2016, which was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood with Grammy Award Winning Producer Jeff Bova (Celine Dion, Blondie) at the helm. The first single off the Breakthrough EP Two Young Hearts was awarded second place at the 2016 International Unsigned Music Awards. And Dino has shared the stage with some heavy hitters in the industry too, including, Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Sammy Hagar (Van Halen), Status Quo, James Morrison and Steve Vai (David Lee Roth/Whitesnake). Can’t Keep Still is set to race up the charts and blow up streaming playlists.
