escala_talentAfter Adam Lambert’s much talked about version of Whole Lotta Love, two weeks ago on American Idol, this week it was the turn of Britain’s Got Talent and a performance from last years finalist, Escala with a blistering version of Kashmir. The performance was watched by over 15 million viewers. Escala are the all female four piece string quartet, who narrowly missed out in last years “Talent” final but immediately secured a £1.5m deal with music mogul Simon Cowell who saw their potential and took them under his wing.

This week see the release of Escala’s self-titled debut album out this week, featuring the girls’ interpretations of a host of well known pop classics. With a little help from Trevor Horn and rock legend guitarist Slash, the album offers the ladies versions of ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin, Robert Miles’ ‘Children and Live And Let Die’ by Wings and is already on route to the chart summit with their eclectic, sexy and genre defying collection.

    This was a brilliant version. It is strange how often Kashmir is used now on tv shows in the background.

    This version was pretty dynamic – especially the way they played the vocal line.
