Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has lent his drumming skills to family friend Kirsty Bertarelli on her new single Indigo Shores.
In an interview, Kirsty talked about Nick Mason’s involvement in her new album, “The production of the album – started so brilliantly by Don Mescal in Nashville, Tennessee and beautifully curated throughout by Tom – was given an extraordinary energy when Nick Mason walked into our little studio. A family friend, Nick not only offered to play on some of the tracks – much to the awe and delight of all of us at Britannia Row, gazing speechlessly at our mentor beating away through the studio glass – but also gave me the confidence to immerse myself in the production process, which ended in a final magical session at Abbey Road!
Nick also introduced us to some extraordinary musicians, who complemented my existing band, and he’s a made a real difference to the team. It’s all a learning process that makes you continue to grow, and that’s what Nick did for me, and it’s been a real privilege”
Nick joined Kirsty at Abbey Road Studios in London, England – he is no stranger here – back in December 2013. It would seem Mr Mason has been keeping himself busy with him working on Pink Floyd’s new album The Endless River also. I hope ‘Naughty Nick’ didn’t miss any sessions!
Kirsty has had a very interesting past having been a former Miss UK and married billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli who owned biotech giant Serono. She is Britain’s richest woman!
However, she has always had a passion for music and wrote hit song Black Coffee for girl band All Saints which was a world-wide hit.
