Judith Durham Professional Career
Durham, Athol Guy, Bruce Woodley, and Keith Potger, an ABC radio producer, were the Seekers; thanks to Potger’s position, the three were able to make a demo tape in their spare time. W&G Records requested another sample of Durham’s voice before agreeing to record a Jazz Preachers album. Instead, in 1963, W&G signed the Seekers for an album called Introducing the Seekers. Durham, on the other hand, recorded two more songs with the Jazz Preachers: “Muddy Water” and “Trombone Frankie.”
On March 12, 1967, the Seekers set an official all-time Australian record when over 200,000 people (nearly one-tenth of the city’s entire population at the time) flocked to their performance at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Their TV special The Seekers Down Under had the highest TV audience ever (a 67 rating), and they were all named “Australians of the Year 1967” early in 1968. Durham informed the Seekers that she was leaving during a tour of New Zealand in February 1968, and she left in July 1968.
Durham returned to Australia in August 1968, and in September her first solo television special, An Evening with Judith Durham, aired on the Nine Network. She released solo albums such as For Christmas with Love, Gift of Song, and Climb Ev’ry Mountain. In 1970, she hosted the television special Meet Judith Durham in London, which concluded with her rendition of Carrie Jacobs-“When Bond’s You Come to the End of a Perfect Day” (1862–1946).
The decision was then made to record The Australian Cities Suite, with all proceeds from CD sales going to charity. The album was supposed to be released in October 2008, but it was eventually pushed back to April 2012. The project was intended to benefit charities such as the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Australia (of which Durham was a national patron) and Orchestra Victoria, as well as others supported by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund or its national affiliated network United Way.
Durham began modernising the music and phrases in the Australian National Anthem, “Advance Australia Fair,” in 2006. She first performed it at Federation Hall on St Kilda Road in May 2009. It was made available as a CD single. Durham made a surprise return to the Myer Music Bowl on 13 February 2009, performing “The Carnival Is Over” as the closing number at the RocKwiz Salutes the Bowl – Sidney Myer Music Bowl 50th Anniversary. Durham gave a one-hour a cappella concert in Melbourne on May 23, 2009, to celebrate the release of her album Up Close and Personal.
Durham signed an exclusive international deal with Decca Records in October 2011. According to George Ash, President of Universal Music Australasia, “It is an honour to welcome Judith Durham to Decca’s stellar roster of artists. When you consider the legends who have graced the Decca Records catalogue, it is the ideal place to welcome Judith, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with her not only on her new recordings, but also on her incredible catalogue.” To commemorate Durham’s 75th birthday, a collection of 14 previously unreleased songs was released on the album So Much More in June 2018.
