Nicholas Edward Cave (born September 22, 1957) is an Australian musician, songwriter, author, screenwriter and occasional actor, best known for his work in the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and his fascination with American music and its roots.

Biblical inspirations

A constant in Cave's work is his use of biblical imagery and an acknowledgment of God's presence. At the start of his career, it used to be more of an Old Testament relationship for Cave, who once wrote, "I don't believe in an interventionist God." In his later career, however, he seems more drawn to the merciful God of the New Testament, stating that "the story of Christ is amazing" and even writing an introduction to The Gospel of Mark for a special edition Bible released in the U.K.
