Pub gig: Acclaimed singer-songwriter Mark Seymour will perform at the Racehorse Hotel in Ipswich this weekend.

When most big bands break-up their musicians can only hope their careers will keep on going.

For the former frontman of Hunters and Collectors, Mark Seymour, his career has continued on its award-winning way since the band split up.

Since the band went their separate ways in 1998 he has released seven albums of his own and been nominated for two ARIA awards.

After releasing his latest solo album in March Seymour will be performing at the Racehorse Hotel on Saturday.

When writing and singing for the Hunters and Collectors Seymour recorded some of Australian music’s most well-known songs including Throw Your Arms Around Me and Holy Grail.

Since then Seymour’s songwriting has continued to evolve and he has even written music for film scores, written and performed music for theatrical productions and tried his hand at acting.

He remains internationally regarded as one of Australia’s best singer-songwriters.
