John Farnham is set to tell his own story in upcoming memoir

He’s The Voice, his book will make you understand it…

In extremely exciting news, Australian icon John Farnham has announced he’s releasing a memoir.

The singer, best known for the hit song You’re The Voice, shared on April 9 that he’s been asked numerous times to tell his story but it only now feels like the “right time” to do so.

“It is a very strange feeling looking back on my life, on the good and the bad and now that I have started it, it is all rushing back. I hope the book engages and entertains, because that’s what so much of my life has been about,” John said in a statement.

John wrote his memoir – titled The Voice Inside, and set to be released in October of this year – with Poppy Stockwell.

“Working with John on his memoir has been like sitting down with an old friend, who also happens to be an absolute legend, to share stories that are both deeply personal and wildly entertaining,” Poppy, who directed the 2023 John Farnham documentary Finding the Voice, said in a statement.

“His resilience and sense of humour shine through every recollection, making this project a genuine reflection of the man behind the music,” she continued.

“It’s been a joy to help bring his tales to life, and I can’t wait for readers to get an unfettered glimpse of the man whose music is the soundtrack to so many of our lives.”
