His playing on Neil Finn’s demo for “That’s What I Call Love” nailed the gig! Akin to such pop rock maestros as Sir Paul, Colin Moulding, and The Attractions’ Bruce Thomas, bassist Nicholas More “Nick” Seymour is that rare player who simultaneously renders passages that serve as a harmonic foundation and a melodic foil.
A founding member of Crowded House, Nick also distinguished himself as a backing vocalist; an Australian Recording Industry Association Award winning album cover artist for the band’s Temple of Low Men (1988); a costume and stage set designer; and songwriter.
Upon the band’s initial split, Seymour turned to production with such bands as Bell X1; toured and recorded with deadstar which featured latter-day Crowded House drummer Paul Jones and ex-Hunters & Collectors guitarist Barry Palmer; scored a documentary film (The Summit / 2012), and appeared on his brother and former Hunters & Collectors front-man Mark Seymour’s debut solo album King Without a Clue (1997).
