Marty Kristian studied architecture at Melbourne University, Australia in the 1960s but dropped out to pursue a singing career. He became a founder member of The New Seekers vocal harmony group, which enjoyed enormous worldwide success in the early '70s. Their biggest hit was ‘I’d like to Teach the World to Sing in Perfect Harmony’ which reached number 1 across the globe, selling in excess of 7.5 million copies. The New Seekers appeared in front of Her Majesty the Queen at The Royal Command Performance. They represented the UK in the Eurovision song contest in 1972 with their hit ‘Beg Steal Or Borrow’ and were regulars on BBC1 Top of the Pops. The New Seekers were household names, performing on all the variety shows of the day including the legendary Morecambe & Wise Christmas Special. The New Seekers toured all over the world and were even invited to sing at President Nixon’s inauguration in America. The New Seekers had numerous number 1 and top 10 hits totalling 36 million sales. Marty has always enjoyed drawing and painting in his leisure time and in the '90s was commissioned to paint a series of murals at Queen Charlotte's Hospital in London. "The unveiling was a special occasion and I was honoured to accompany The Queen Mother on a guided tour at the opening ceremony," recalls Marty, who has now also taken up clay sculpture.
