Mark Seymour & The Undertow
Mark Seymour formed Hunters and Collectors in 1980. The band became famous for its rhythmic power and very quickly became touted as the “next big thing”. Hunters and Collectors went on to record some of this country’s most successful rock albums, including multi-platinum releases “Ghost Nation” and “Cut”, and by 1998, Mark felt that he had done all that he could as the frontman of Hunters and Collectors. After eighteen years of touring with one of Australia’s most successful and deeply loved rock bands, he found himself alone on stage with just an acoustic guitar.
As a solo artist, Mark continues to search for the emotional truth in a song. Mark Seymour’s strength as a performer remains undiminished despite the ever-present shadow of the band he used to be in.
As well as 13 Hunters & Collectors albums, Mark has released seven solo albums and four with his current band, The Undertow. Throughout it all, he has shown he is one of our finest songwriters, capturing our stories of love, loss, human courage and achievement.
