BIOGRAPHY - 2000'S
NICK'S WORK PROCESS
In the two fields in which I work, pop and film, my work process can vary from one extreme to another. As with all things, information is power, or in my case, information is the key to a successful project. When I am hired, whether as an arranger, an orchestrator or conductor, the amount of information I can get from the client will make my job harder or easier......
As the new millennium started, Nick’s work on the pop side continued with hits for Eric Clapton, Dido (at last count, her last album had topped the twenty million mark) Morcheeba, Radiohead (“O.K. Computer”), Madonna, Robbie Williams and Elton John. He was also involved in the Pop Idol phenomenon, starting his association with Will Young in particular, with whom he went on to have many hits.
His work as an arranger of pop records has culminated in 13 No. 1 records and five double platinum records in the UK alone.
He has been nominated for 3 Grammy's: for his role as conductor of a new cast album of West Side Story recorded with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, for arranging Sade's multi-million selling album Lover's Rock and a similar role on Eric Clapton's album Pilgrim
In 2010 he was inducted into The Musician's Union Hall Of Fame.
