His unofficial anthems, funny and tender ballads and tributes to unsung heroes have captured the spirit of the nation in song more than any other performer. He remains one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia. His fiftieth album, Honest People, was released in 2104 at the same time as his autobiography, and in 2018 he released his fifty-first, Butcherbird. Three songs from his popular JW’s Family Album have been made into delightful, entertaining picture books for children.
