The original New Seekers comprised Eve Graham (Evelyn May Beatson, 19 April 1943, Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland; vocals, ex-Nocturnes), Sally Graham (vocals), Chris Barrington (b. 1950, Lancashire, England; bass/vocals), Laurie Heath (guitar/vocals), and Marty Kristian (b. Martin Vanags, 27 May 1947, Leipzig, Germany - a Latvian who had been raised in Australia; guitar/vocals). This line-up recorded only one album, 1970s The New Seekers, before Heath, Barrington and Sally Graham left to form Milkwood and were replaced by Lyn Paul (b. Lynda Susan Belcher, 16 February 1949, Manchester, England; ex-Nocturnes), Peter Doyle (b. 28 July 1949, Abbotsford, Melbourne, Australia, d. 13 October 2001, Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia), and Paul Layton (b. 4 August 1947, Beaconsfield, England). ex-Seekers Keith Potger was originally a member of the group, but retreated to the less public role of manager.
