  • Nicholas Edward "Nick" Cave (born 22 September 1957) is an Australian musician, singer-songwriter, author, screenwriter, composer and occasional film actor, best known as the frontman of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Referred to as rock music's "Prince of Darkness", Cave's music is generally characterised by emotional intensity, a wide variety of influences, and lyrical obsessions with death, religion, love and violence. NME called him "the grand lord of gothic lushness". Born and raised in rural Victoria, Cave studied art in Melbourne and for a time considered becoming a painter. In the 1970s, he formed and fronted the Boys Next Door, which spearheaded Melbourne's bourgeoning post-punk scene. They changed their name to the Birthday Party and relocated to London in 1980. Disillusioned by life in England, the band's sound and live shows became increasingly violent, and they garnered a reputation as one of darkest and most challenging groups of the 1980s. For this they are credited as a major influence on gothic rock. The band, having released three albums and two EPs, fell apart after moving to West Berlin in 1983. After the break up of the Birthday Party, Cave formed Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in 1983, releasing its debut album the following year. Much of the band's early material was set in a mythic American Deep South, drawing on spirituals and Delta blues, while Cave's preoccupation with Old Testament notions of good versus evil culminated in what has been called his signature song, "The Mercy Seat" (1988). The 1996 album Murder Ballads featured "Where the Wild Roses Grow", a duet with Kylie Minogue, Cave's most commercially successful single to date. Skeleton Tree, the band's sixteenth and most recent album, was released in 2016. Cave formed the garage rock group Grinderman in 2006, which has since released two albums. Cave co-wrote, scored and starred in the 1988 Australian prison film Ghosts... of the Civil Dead (1988), directed by John Hillcoat. Cave also wrote the screenplay for Hillcoat's bushranger film The Proposition (2005), and composed the soundtrack with frequent collaborator Warren Ellis. The pair's film score credits include The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007), The Road (2009) and Lawless (2012). Cave is the subject and co-writer of the semi-fictional "day in the life" documentary 20,000 Days on Earth (2014). He has also released two novels: And the Ass Saw the Angel (1989) and The Death of Bunny Munro (2009). Cave's songs have been covered by a wide range of artists, including Johnny Cash, Metallica and Arctic Monkeys. Upon his induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame, ARIA Awards committee chairman Ed St John said: "Nick Cave has enjoyed—and continues to enjoy—one of the most extraordinary careers in the annals of popular music. He is an Australian artist like Sidney Nolan is an Australian artist—beyond comparison, beyond genre, beyond dispute." (en)

  • Nicholas Edward Cave (n. Warracknabeal, Australia, 22 de septiembre de 1957), más conocido como Nick Cave, es un músico, escritor y actor australiano. Es famoso especialmente por su trabajo con el grupo Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, fundado en 1983 con una mezcla diversa de influencias y estilos musicales. Antes de The Bad Seeds, Cave perteneció al grupo The Birthday Party, conocido por su rock gótico, sus letras desafiantes y un sonido violento influido por el free jazz, el blues y el post-punk. En 2006 formó con Warren Ellis Grinderman un grupo paralelo a The Bad Seeds que publicó su primer álbum al año siguiente. Con una larga trayectoria que comenzó a principios de los años setenta, su música se caracteriza por un lirismo oscuro, pero también por un interés hacia lo violento y lo erótico, con influencia de grupos y compositores como Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Leonard Cohen o bluesmen como Robert Johnson, dentro de una estética bohemia y urbana. Tras su inclusión en el ARIA Hall of Fame, el presidente del comité Ed St. John dijo sobre el músico: «Cave ha disfrutado -y continúa disfrutando- de una de las carreras más extraordinarias de la música popular. Es un artista australiano como Sidney Nolan: por encima de comparaciones, de géneros y de disputas». (es)

  • Grazie ad una serie di notevoli album e intense esibizioni dal vivo, ha coniato uno stile lirico e musicale inconfondibile che lo ha imposto come una delle figure più influenti e carismatiche della musica contemporanea. Dagli esordi post-punk ai lavori recenti, più vicini al cantautorato, Cave ha sviluppato una personalissima rielaborazione dei generi cardine della musica nata negli Stati Uniti (blues, gospel, country), affrontati con lo spirito cupo e sperimentale della new wave e del gothic rock, anche grazie alla sua caratteristica voce gutturale da baritono. I suoi testi, attraversati da una forte tensione religiosa e da un costante senso di apocalisse imminente, affrontano tematiche quali il ruolo del divino nella vita dell'uomo, la ricerca della redenzione, l'angoscia esistenziale e l'amore perduto.
