Snow Patrol

Snow Patrol

     Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish band which formed in Dundee, Scotland, with the majority of their members being from Bangor and Belfast, Northern Ireland. They are based in Glasgow and are signed to Polydor Records. Originally formed as an indie rock band, Snow Patrol have sought a more alternative rock and powerpop sound in recent years on the heels of mainstream success with the songs “Run”, “Chasing Cars” and “Signal Fire” from the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack.
     Snow Patrol mix an indie rock ethic with space rock sensibilities for an edgy, guitar-oriented pop sound. This Northern Irish act found success while they were students in college in Scotland. Lead singer Gary Lightbody has been influenced by everyone from Eddie Vedder to Sebadoh. Snow Patrol played around the U.K. for years before making waves in the U.S. with their 2004 album “Final Straw.” Lightbody has a side project called the Reindeer Section featuring members of Mogwai and Belle and Sebastian.
     The band’s first three records, including their first EP, (Starfighter Pilot, Songs for Polarbears, When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up) were commercially unsuccessful and were released with an independent record label. When the band moved to a major record label Polydor Records they released their album Final Straw which crossed 4x platinum sales in the UK. The band received worldwide success thanks to the album Eyes Open which sold 4.7 million copies worldwide. Snow Patrol has been nominated for 3 BRIT Awards and has won five Meteors. Worldwide, the band has sold over 7 million albums.

ABBA

ABBA

     ABBA is a Swedish Eurovision Song Contest-winning pop/dance group active between 1972 and 1982. The quartet was formed through the friendship of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and also consists of Anni-Frid Lyngstad (usually known as Frida) and Agnetha Fältskog. They topped the charts worldwide from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s. The name “ABBA” is an acronym formed from the first letters of each of the group member’s given name (Agnetha, Björn, Benny, Anni-Frid).
     This Swedish foursome’s hooky pop is as popular in the new millennium as it was in the group’s 1970s heyday. The name Abba was an acronym for its members: Anni-Frid, Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha. Despite all of the band’s worldwide success, “Dancing Queen” remains Abba’s only U.S. No. 1. Abba’s youngest member, Agnetha Faltskog, played Mary Magdalene in the Swedish production of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Abba is also a Swedish fish-canning company. The group had to negotiate with the canners for the right to use the name.
     ABBA received immense international popularity employing catchy song hooks, simple lyrics, and a Wall of Sound achieved by overdubbing the female singers’ voices in multiple harmonies. As their popularity grew, they were sought after to tour Europe, Australia, and North America, drawing crowds of near-hysterical fans, notably in Australia during the tour there. Touring became a contentious issue, particularly unpopular with Agnetha, though they continued to release studio albums to great commercial success. At the height of their popularity, however, both marriages of the band members failed, and the relationship changes were reflected in their music, as they produced more thoughtful lyrics with different compositions.

     Christina María Aguilera (born December 18, 1980) is an American pop singer-songwriter. She was signed to RCA Records after recording “Reflection” for the film Mulan. She came to prominence following her debut album Christina Aguilera (1999), which was a commercial success. A Latin pop album, Mi Reflejo, and several collaborations followed which garnered Aguilera worldwide success, but she was displeased with the lack of input in her music and image.
     Christina Aguilera’s electric dance pop, flashy smile and smooth dance moves have made her a favorite among fans worldwide. At age ten, Aguilera appeared on “Star Search;” at 12, she landed a role on “The New Mickey Mouse Club.” Aguilera’s explosive career was precipitated by her performance of “Reflection” for Disney’s animated film “Mulan.” After shocking the world on Stripped, Aguilera got married, released an album of classy retro tunes and started a family. As a child, Aguilera lived in various locations, including Tokyo and Pittsburgh, because of her dad’s military career.
     After parting from her management, Aguilera took creative control over her second studio album Stripped (2002) which received mixed reviews and produced substantial sales. The overtly sexual image Aguilera displayed during the promotion of the album became the subject of intense criticism and ridicule. The second single, “Beautiful”, was a commercial success and sustained the album’s sales.
