GUINNESS ALL ROUND

Nick has packed his bag and is headed to the Emerald Isle today as his Irish Tour kicks off to a rather frisky start at Luton Airport.

Staff at Luton Airport took such a shine to Nick and his unique attire that they insisted that he take it all off going through customs, much to the amusement of the elliottstudios team.

Nick is being commissioned by Simon Collins to shoot his new album artwork and promo material at various locations around the Republic Of Ireland near the musicians hometown. Simon, the British-Canadian drummer and lead vocalist of the talented rock band Sound of Contact and son of Genesis drummer and singer Phil Collins, contacted Nick for this very special shoot.

Simon and his album collaborator, and fellow Sound of Contact band member, Kelly Nordstrom an award winning Canadian guitarist, will be the subjects of Nicks commissioned shoot, to the wonderful backdrop of the breathtaking and magical landscape of Ireland.

Simon and Kelly have forged a notable and award winning reputation within the music business and continue to work with many mainstream music artists, including Genesis.

Simon has been busy during the lockdown period producing his latest album which has had a cathartic effect on him. The album comes from Simons experiences of personal hardship and struggle during various life changing events, including his divorce and band break up.

Nick has taken his studio team with him, including Andy Blithe, to document the Irish Tour and contribute to the fly on the wall documentary, The Story So Far, documenting Nicks life, produced and directed by Andy. The duo will also be broadcasting live podcasts.

Nick and Andy will be meeting Simon and Kelly later tonight at Simons studio and home, then it’s all off for a well deserved meal and a Guinness or two

Shooting starts tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for live updates on nickelliott.info
