Paul Simon started his singing career participating in musicals, it took not long until he was discovered in a sound studio. After a few demo’s Paul Simon joined lead singer Henri Overduin to become the main lead singers of Spectral Display.
Composer , keyboard artist & producer Michel Mulders, founded Spectral Display in the eighties. He was signed a two-album record contract with EMI Holland, to work with various lead singers and lyricists.
He found a succesful collaborator in Henri Overduin, who wrote most of the lyrics and also did the vocals on their first hit single Lyrics were mostly written by Henri Overduin, who also sung the first hit single ‘It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love’.
‘It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love’ was released in 13 countries. First in Holland and Italy, followed by France, Germany, Spain, the UK, Belgium, Australia, New-Sealand, Japan…..
‘It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love’ was covered by several international singers amoung M.I.A. a couple of years back, who released the track as her second single from the album MAYA. It was produced by DIPLO.
With the use of ‘It Takes A Muscle’ in various international films, the song has been picked up and its popularity has risen. On Spotify & YouTube it reached over 2 million streams/downloads.
Many requests to reunite and write new material triggered Michel Mulders and Henri Overduin to get back together to write a new ablum ‘You Steal My Heart’ of which the name is the equivalent of the first single to be released. The vocals on the new album are reinforced by dutch singer Paul Simon, A3ana, Maxine & Mandy Huydts.
Guest vocals Brian B & Marianne Blok. Guitarists Bert Meulendijk & Lex Bolderdijk. Bass guitarist Michel van Schie.
Much more likely to appeal to open-minded electronic fans and those with eclectic tastes than to strictly pop fans, the impressive collection offers original tunes, including the atmospheric and wistful ‘Chained Melody’ and virtuosic ‘You Give Me Wings’.
