He performed vocals for the track Lonely Soul on UNKLE's 1998 release Psyence Fiction and his voice can also be heard on the The Chemical Brothers' album Come With Us track The Test. He is good friends with Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and Coldplay's Chris Martin (whom Ashcroft thanks for 'letting me be myself again'), and occasionally plays as support at Oasis and Coldplay concerts, including the European and second UK legs of Coldplay's 'Twisted Logic Tour'. He recently described himself as 'the best support act you'll ever see'. The Oasis track "Cast No Shadow" is dedicated to him.

Chris Martin introduced him as "the best singer in the world" when he performed "Bitter Sweet Symphony" (which Martin called "the best song in the world") with Coldplay at the London Live 8 concert in 2005. On his second album Human Conditions The Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson guest stars on the song Nature is the Law. Ashcroft is married to Kate Radley, ex-Spiritualized keyboard player.

Jayne Joso - Literary Festivals - Novel about Music

I saw this author read at a gig last year from her novel: Soothing Music for Stray Cats by Jayne Joso- if you love indie and great music in general you might like this.. She sold out at Chester Lit Fest last year otherwise I\'d have gone to that as well.. but one to look out for. Hay Festvial is great too.
