Mini Bio (1)

Eve Graham was a member of the enormously successful pop group The New Seekers from 1969 to 1978. The individually talented mixed vocal harmony group first hit the UK charts with their cover version of the Melanie Safka song "What Have They Done to My Song, Ma" (a US Top 20 in its cover version) early in 1970, and enjoyed a successful chart career ending with "Anthem (One Day In Every Week)" in 1978. The group never had a hit without Eve Graham despite the fact that it continued recording with replacement members after her departure, and as late as 2004 still exists with only one original member in the line up. The group's most famous international hit, "I'd Like To Teach The World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony)", adapted from a certain cola jingle, will remind people of the voice of Eve Graham.

"People believe if you've been a pop star you can't do anything else. You're not allowed to show your face unless it's that showbusiness face - lest it destroy their illusion of you."
I know there are people who specialise in tracking down unpaid royalties; if they'd like to do that for us I'd love to hear from them. But it makes you too bitter if you get involved yourself. It's a waste of life.
We were laid-back interpreters of songs. We were entertainers. I saw no shame in that. But then Paul Layton and Marty Kristian worked out they could get money if they wrote the songs, and it just wasn't the same.
No matter how big the success, it just becomes work. The problem for me was loneliness. I'd sit in my flat the whole time. It was a terribly lonely time for me.
The Americans thought it was a hoot that we tapdanced.
I got things from working in Debenhams that I didn't get by entertaining on stage. I was actually helping people to solve problems they couldn't solve for themselves. It was a fascinating job.
