Interview: Judith Durham of the Seekers

The achievements of The Seekers are overwhelming. The band was one of Australia’s most successful groups of all-time, selling more than 60 million records worldwide.

The Seekers were the first Australia act to have a number one record in England. They were the first Australian act to simultaneously have a top 5 hit in the UK, USA and Australia. They still hold the record for the biggest crowd ever at a concert in the Southern Hemisphere – Over 200,000 at the Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne.

Judith Durham was an original member of the band and can be heard on such major hits as A World of Our Own (1965/#19 Pop/#2 Adult Contemporary), I'll Never Find Another You (1965/#4 Pop/#2 Adult Contemporary) and Georgy Girl (1967/#2 Pop/#7 Adult Contemporary). Durham left the band at the peak of its career and talks about why in this interview.

She has a new album, Epiphany, and a companion album to her biography, Colours of My Life and talks about it all at with Paul Cashmere.
