Bio

Nik Green:  Keyboards, vocals, programming, engineer and producer.

Nik was born in Somerset. He took his first piano lessons at age four. Nik quit piano at 17, and soon after was “fired up” by the sounds of the synthesizer.

In 1980, Nik formed an all electronic trio with John Connell and Will Douglas, known as The Really Schmaltzy Cabaret Boys (!), playing electronic dance/ambient music – John went on to join the English National Opera, singing Wagner and Verdi, but Nik joined English folk artist Roy Harper whose band featured guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist Tony Franklin. In the late 80’s, when electronic dance music was really catching on, Nik was recruited into hard rock/heavy metal, with former Whitesnake‘s guitarist, John Sykes and his band Blue Murder, featuring Tony Franklin on bass and Carmine Appice on drums. Nik moved to Los Angeles. Blue Murder dissolved in 1995. In 1995, he teamed up with singer/songwriter Penny Little who had been signed to Warner Chappell in the UK, to form the Away Team.   He composed music for numerous documentary films, including 911 Dust and Deceit.

Nik was involved in various collaborations with Barry Palmer (singer with Triumvirat and Mike Oldfield), with Inner City Unit as engineer/co-producer with Nik Turner on the EP “Blood and Bone.” and Lunden Reign.   Nik also has done time in various studios as sound engineer, programmer, and designing digital audio gear for Dawnhope and AMS.A partial, and somewhat correct discography is online here.    And he really was a weatherman for the British Meteorological Office.
