Vitamin String Quartet (VSQ) is a musical group from Los Angeles, California that is widely known for its series of tribute albums to rock and pop acts. Their albums are released through Vitamin Records and primarily performed by a string quartet, though other instruments have been used. "Vitamin String Quartet is about applying rock n' roll attitude to classical technique," says Tom Tally, a violist and arranger who has performed on and produced over fifty Vitamin String Quartet albums.
Their albums honor a wide variety of genres, including pop and rock, metal, techno, country, and hip-hop, and a wide variety of groups, such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix, The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, System of a Down, The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Muse, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Slayer, Adele, Lady Gaga and many more. Their discography includes 261 albums!
I have a few of their albums and it's very relaxing to listen to them, even when they are performing the music of metal bands etc it sounds so calming. I'll post a number of links to selected albums and at the end I'll post a link for the channel on You Tube that has absolutely loads of their albums. Rather than type up the full titles of each album I'll just list the artist. Hope you enjoy this very different style.
