Nicholas Edward “Nick” Cave (Born 22 September 1957) is musician, singer-songwriter, published author and actor from Victoria, Australia. Cave is known for his intense and dark lyrical content.

Cave grew up in a small country town in Australia, and attended a boarding school in Melbourne. He studied Fine Art and claims painting was his first passion, before he dropped out of art school to pursue his musical ambitions. Cave’s father died in a car crash when he was 19, an event that he has stated caused “a vacuum” in his life.

After initially forming the moderately Goth punk band The Birthday Party with school friends, Cave, who had garnered a reputation for his outlandish live performance with the band, went on to form Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, taking some members of the now disbanded old group with him.

It was with the Bad Seeds that Cave was propelled into stardom, with the bands experimentation with various rock and punk genres, mixed with Cave’s gothic styling’s and brooding emotional tone, contributing to their growing success and fan base.

Following on from the band’s debut album release in 1984 “From Her To Eternity”, the Bad Seeds garnered critical acclaim for practically all 10 of the studio albums they released up till 1997, when Cave decided to put the band on hiatus due to his drug and alcohol addictions.

The band returned triumphantly in 2001 with “No More Shall We Part” and have never looked back since, releasing a further four albums since, such as the well received garage rock outing, “Dig Lazarus Dig!!!”
