John William Michael Field (b. May 15, 1962) is an Australian composer/songwriter who has written a large number of songs for the internationally acclaimed Australian children's performers, The Wiggles. He is the older brother of Anthony Field, the Blue Wiggle.

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. In 1992, John was a member of The Honeymen. The pair released two singles 'Felt Like A Kiss' and 'Motorbike Of Love'. John has been in other live bands including The Alligators and The Oomph. His current outfit, The John Field Band is highly sought-after for parties and corporate functions. 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.

The Wiggles

In 1991, John met Murray and Greg at Macquarie University and asked him if he could involve with The Wiggles. And that's just what he did. He busked with them and occasionally appeared at their concerts, though he was never a full-time member.
