One of the most successful UK bands ever, Coldplay have achieved the unachievable. Over 100 major awards including nine BritAwards and seven Grammys, over 100 million copies sold across their seven number one albums and countless hit singles, the 4 piece have now reached the 20th anniversary of their second album ‘A Rush Of Blood To The Head’.
To celebrate the anniversary, Kent based singer-songwriter Siimon has put together a unique tribute album ‘A Rush Of Strings To The Head’ - A euphonious retake of the entire Coldplay album arranged for string quartet and piano, with SIIMON providing the lead vocal. Recorded live at Ash church in Kent towards the end of 2021, the album was produced by acclaimed producer Paddy Byrne, known best for his work with the likes of Tom Grennan, Paloma Faith, Will Young and Olly Murs.
The lead track, Siimons’ rendition of the track ‘In My Place’ is melodically uplifting and beautifully composed, giving the track a unique twist whilst paying homage to the original. The album was recorded with top string quartet Solas Strings who have worked with top acts including Duran Duran, So Solid Crew, Danny O'Donoghue (The Script), Rick Wakeman and Rebecca Ferguson.
