The Seekers

Australia's first major pop export, the cleancut Seekers were one of the biggest chart acts of the 1960s, still affectionately remembered for massive hits like I'll Never Find Another You, A World Of Our Own, The Carnival Is Over and Georgy Girl. Bruce Woodley, Athol Guy and Keith Potger originally formed The Seekers while at school together in Melbourne, but their ace card was the sumptuous voice of Judith Durham, who was singing jazz when they accidentally met her one day and invited her to join them. They went on to enjoy unparalleled success for an Australian band at that time after coming to the UK in 1964, when they found a receptive audience for their tuneful, singalong folk pop. The Seekers remained a hugely popular recording band and live attraction until splitting in 1968 when Judith Durham decided to return to her jazz roots and go solo. Potger formed the New Seekers, while Woodley wrote the unofficial Australian national anthem, I Am Australian and attempts to reform The Seekers with other singers in Durham's place all foundered. The original line-up finally reformed in 1992 with a 25 Year Silver Jubilee tour and toured for 11 years before retiring for the final time in 2004.
