Chris Martin Biography (Wikipedia)

Christopher "Chris" Anthony John Martin (born 2 March 1977) is a British singer, songwriter, record producer and co-founder of the British rock band Coldplay. Born in Whitestone, near Exeter in Devon, Martin went to the University College London where he formed a rock band with fellow musician Jonny Buckland in 1996 called Pectoralz (eventually renamed Coldplay in 1998).

Martin-along with the other Coldplay members-achieved worldwide fame with the release of the band's single "Yellow" in 2000, a song that also earned the band their first Grammy Award nomination in the Best Rock Song category. The band also garnered critical acclaim and several accolades for their subsequent albums including A Rush of Blood to the Head and Viva la Vida, winning a Grammy for both and a Brit Award for the former. Additionally, the band has sold more than 80 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists.
