Template:For Phil Seaman (1947–1986) was an English piano-based singer-songwriter who found fame with his hit single "Rain" in 1972, and the album Vermillion Memoirs of the same year.[1]

His career was cut short in 1973 in Norfolk, when he was run over by a tractor and left paralysed below the neck. His last musical work was part of an unreleased duet with Cliff Richard, "Spring Of My Godforsaken Soul", in 1974. He developed an addiction to morphine, and in his later days became a recluse, with it often rumoured he had become a hermit in South America.[2] His death was confirmed by relatives in 1986; no cause was given.[3]
