Mark Seymour and The Undertow
Most will know Mark Seymour as the front man and songwriter for iconic Australian rock band Hunters & Collectors (H&C), you only have to go down to your local to hear their pub rock anthems like the ‘Holy Grail’ still on high rotation after all these years.
After 18 years with H&C, Mark has been enjoying a successful solo career, these days Mark has teamed up with Cameron McKenzie, John Favaro and Peter Maslen and they go by the name of ‘Mark Seymour and the Undertow’, their sound, according to Stephen Cummings is like;
“…Richard Clapton meets Jackson Browne at a car park above a beach with breaking surf. When the Kings of Leon turn fifty this is what they might sound like…”
Mark’s latest album, the Self titled Mark Seymour & the undertow (2011) is Mark’s 6th solo album and, has been argued as his finest one yet;
“….This is a musician sounding completely at ease with who he's become, though the voice is as distinctive as ever and the passion still apparent in his lyrics” Sydney Morning Herald.
Mark is set to release his 7th Solo album titled The Seventh Heaven Club in early March 2013.
Come along and let Mark Seymour wow you with his intense passionate vocals, his wry humour and his brilliant song writing.
