Judith Durham with the Two Murrays on 2UE 954

The Seekers rivaled the Beatles and Rolling Stones on the pop charts in the 60's. Not just the lead singer, Judith Durham also knows how to write a great song. Two Murrays speak with our Australian musical goddess.

 

Continuing the celebration of Judith Durham’s 50th anniversary in the music industry, Universal Music Australia proudly joins forces with Musicoast for the release of two exciting new albums.  Following the success of Judith’s 2011 self-penned album ‘Epiphany’ - her 10th solo album - and her 50 Year Retrospective ‘Colours Of My Life’, comes Judith’s magnum opus ‘The Australian Cities Suite’.

 

Available April 27, this is an album for all Australians, composed and sung by one of our national treasures.

 

It’s for families to enjoy in celebration of their own special corner of Australia, and to hand down from generation to generation, as well as for “those who come across the seas”.

 

Melodious and rhythmic, emotional and fun, throughout this stunning body of work Judith’s golden voice joins forces with the magnificent Orchestra Victoria under the baton of conductor and arranger Kevin Hocking. 

 

Recorded at Melbourne’s ABC Iwaki Auditorium, the music reverberates with a beauty and magic that is timeless and innocent. These are the kind of songs that will live in our hearts to always reinforce the love each of us feels for our own home town.  When listening to this beautiful ‘Suite’, both now and in years to come, Judith’s songs will evoke childhood memories, the heartaches and loves we still cherish.

  • I've loved her all my life. Just once id like to hear her rock it out with that old Tv rock song: Flaunt it. Perhaps she knows the words and if she brings her guitar to the studio.......
