Kobalt Spotlight: The Simon Aldred Catalogue


Ivor Novello & Q Award winning songwriter, Simon Aldred, has made a lasting mark on the pop and rock world.

Aldred rose to musical prominence in the mid 00s as a songwriter and frontman of the hugely influential Cherry Ghost, whose debut album went top 10 and spawned the enduring hit “People Help The People”. They went on to release two more highly acclaimed albums. Since then, Simon has become one of the most sought-after songwriters in the business, and has worked with the likes of Sam Smith, Rag’n’Bone Man, Liam Gallagher, Birdy and Avicii amongst many others.

Simon is a long standing member of the Kobalt Publishing family and we wanted to highlight some of his classic hits, co-writes and hidden gems to our partners.

Aldred also formed the solo project band Out Cold to combine his love of 80s dance and soul music. Check out his video for “All I Want” below.
