Judith Durham To Be Inducted Into the Australian Women In Music Awards Honour Role

Australian music legend and singer for The Seekers for 50 years Judith Durham will be added to the Australian Women In Music Awards Honour Roll at the 2019 awards in Brisbane in 9 October.

In a statement Judith said, “They say the longest journey begins with just one step, but you have to have a dream to start, and I had plenty of dreams. It’s such a blessing to have spent my 76 years of life so far in musical expression; so emotionally healing, inspirational and uplifting – first as a soloist aspiring to a life in opera or classical piano, or popular songs or musicals, but finding myself following the teenage trends; singing Dixieland Jazz, Blues and Gospel. Then sailing off with three fantastic guys whose voices blended uniquely with my own. Unbelievably, we stormed the international music world, at the top of the charts. They say destiny happens when you’re making other plans, and that’s how it was.”

Judith joined The Seekers in 1962 and sang on the six albums in the 60s through to ‘Seekers Seen In Green’ in 1967.

One of her early achievements with the band was the Australian and UK number one ‘I’ll Never Find Another You’ in 1965. The song also reached number four in the USA making The Seekers a pioneering Australian band globally.

With The Seekers Judith had 10 Top 40 singles, six Top 10 singles and three number one hits.

Judith no longer performs with The Seekers. The band now billed as The Original Seekers features new singer Michael Cristiano.

The Original Seekers will perform songs from ‘Back To Our Roots’ live around Australia in October and November.

The Original Seekers dates

13 October, Brisbane, QPAC Concert Hall
20 October, Sydney, City Recital Hall
2 November, Melbourne, Melbourne Recital Centre
