Identity

RICHARD NILES‘ career spans pop, R&B, rock and jazz as a recording artist, composer, producer, songwriter, arranger, conductor, musical director, BBC radio broadcaster, author and educator. For his work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Pat Metheny, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Bob James, Westlife, Kiri Te Kanawa, Tina Turner, Take That, James Brown, Dusty Springfield, Michael McDonald and the Pet Shop Boys, Niles has been called “one of the most versatile men in modern music.” Niles formed BANDZILLA in 1985 after arranging Slave To The Rhythm for Grace Jones. For 10 weeks in 1986 BANDZILLA became the house band for comedienne Ruby Wax’s first TV series for Channel 4, Don’t Miss Wax. Since then BANDZILLA has been re-inventing the big band performing with Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Kylie Minogue, Westlife, Pet Shop Boys, Michael McDonald, Deniece Williams, Pat Kane (of Hue & Cry), Kid Creole and stage and TV star Michael Ball. BANDZILLA took a long holiday and has not performed since the mid ‘90s. Now, Niles has taken the jazz-crazed reptile for another stomp, this time with star singers and the hottest players in the word.
