Chris Martin In-depth Biography

The pensive vocals of Coldplay} frontman Chris Martin} has often been compared to Thom Yorke} of Radiohead}. However, it is the ghost of the late Jeff Buckley}, one of Martin}'s favorites, that haunts his sad, emotionally vulnerable singing. Martin} was born in Devon, England, on March 2, 1977, the eldest of five children. Raised in Devon, Martin} attended University College London where he met future Coldplay} guitarist Jon Buckland} more than a year before forming the band. On January 6, 1998, Martin} began to rehearse songs with Buckland}. Guy Berryman} (bass) and Will Champion} (drums) were subsequently added to the lineup. In April 1999, while Martin} studied for his finals, his group was signed to the British label Parlophone}. Coldplay}'s first two EPs, Shiver} and Yellow}, were applauded by critics for their dreamy riffs and bittersweet lyrics; Martin}'s warm, comforting voice on the song "Yellow,"} a moving declaration of love, provided listeners with an alternative to the barrage of aggressive rap-metal} acts in 2000. The track, already a hit in England, topped the request lines of modern rock} radio stations in Seattle and Los Angeles before MTV} exposure enabled Coldplay}'s debut album, Parachutes}, to sell more than 500,000 copies. Success was followed by the inevitable backlash: Martin}'s clean-cut image, especially his public disdain for alcohol, was ridiculed by some British writers. ~ Michael Sutton, All Music Guide
