Biography

Conway Savage (born 27 July 1960) is an Australian rock musician best known as pianist/organist/backing vocalist for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.

Savage joined the group in 1990 for their The Good Son tour of that year, and has since appeared on albums such as Henry's Dream, Let Love In, Murder Ballads, The Boatman's Call, No More Shall We Part and Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus. One of his more noticeable performances is on the song "The Willow Garden", a b-side of "Where the Wild Roses Grow", where in a rare occasion for the Bad Seeds, Conway does lead vocals. Due to the overall minimal piano parts on the band's 14th release, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, Conway was featured on backing vocals and hand claps.

He began playing piano in his early teens in the dining room of one of the pubs his parents owned in country Victoria. In the 1980s he played in the Melbourne-based country-rock band Dust On The Bible, with his sister-in-law Jane (wife of rock cabaret performer/builder Frank Savage) as lead vocalist, and in the rock band The Feral Dinosaurs.
