He has worked with The Wiggles since 1993 around the early days. He is married to Jacqueline Fallon and they had 4 children.

Prior to writing for The Wiggles, John was a member of the Australian rock band, The Cockroaches, alongside his brothers Paul, Anthony and another future Wiggle, Jeff Fatt.

The John Field Band has released two albums, a self-titled debut, and a follow-up, "Night Will Fall", in December 2007.

Field wrote and produced the musical Evie and the Birdman, which originally starred Sam Moran, who was to replace Greg Page as the Yellow Wiggle upon Page's retirement in 2006. He is currently in the process of creating another musical theatre production, Who Loves Me?

John has also written commercial jingles, including one for Parklea Markets. He has a degree in Education. He is married to Jacqueline Fallon and has four children. He resides in Sydney, Australia.
