Your songs ring out your praises
Their power floods our homes
Their words tear through my heart
As the whistling troopie walks again
And my tears dilute
The blood-red wine…. 

~ Chas Lotter

The man JOHN EDMOND has certainly walked the walk of life! Along the way, he has reflected and documented in song his many human stories, be they light-hearted or tragic relating to his involvement in THE RHODESIAN BUSH WAR and his life in THE AFRICAN BUSH. He has researched and written about the life, times and characters of THE EARLY SETTLERS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA, THE GREAT TREK, ZULU WAR, FRONTIER WARS, ANGLO BOER WARS & WORLD WARS.

Among the 500 plus songs, JOHN has written. There will be something for everyone from Children, Outdoors and Wildlife enthusiasts, HISTORIANS, Aviators, pop and even love songs!

Over 250 of the songs and lyrics are published in the songbook “BEHIND THE SONGS”
