New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ John Trager Official Website) Award-winning singer-songwriter, John Trager, is promising big things for the music world, with the recent worldwide release of his debut solo single "I Don't Wanna Wake Up!"

This is the first single from Trager's forthcoming debut EP, "Pop Songs & Panic Attacks!", scheduled for release in May 2012.

Mixed by David Briggs, guitarist for Australia's own rock legends Little River Band, and inspired by the song writing of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Daniel Johns and Darren Hayes, "I Don't Wanna Wake Up!" has been described as "Dolly Grunge", an explosion of rock attitude and pop melodies.

The video clip, which has already received over 1000 You Tube hits since the single's 20th January iTunes release, features Jeremy Hallam, dubbed "The People Dwarf" by comedy duo Hamish and Andy, and Simon Hepburn, better known as "Hep" from Australian punk rock band 28 Days.

Australian-born Trager has been passionate about music for over 15 years, drawing upon personal experience to create his masterpieces. "I Don't Wanna Wake Up!" is a two and half minute break-up anthem that was written immediately following Trager's escape from a hurtful relationship. The accompanying music video, filmed in Melbourne, Australia, is symbolic of the struggling love theme, with Trager having felt like he was "carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders". Yet Trager's positive attitude and determination is reflected in the style of song, which delivers a lively, loud and upbeat guitar-driven melody rather than dark and depressive monotones. This is a song that, like many of his others, will undoubtedly have people singing, or shouting, along in their cars.

With hopes of success for his debut single, Trager is already planning his next release. "Emergency Lover" saw Trager win the award for "Best Song Writing" at the 2011 National Music Video Mash Up Awards held in Brisbane. The song is again reflective of Trager's personal experience, and features the incredible vocals of Safiye Vurdu, a voice that has been likened to American rock band Evanescence's Amy Lee.

Trager will be touring nationally in late 2012 to support the release of his forthcoming EP. As an exclusive offer, until 31st March 2012, fans that purchase "I Don't Wanna Wake Up!" from iTunes can forward their receipt to and receive three live acoustic album tracks recorded in November during Melbourne Music Week.
