Originally from Buffalo NY, Nick Mason began his passion for percussion at an early age. Given a snare drum at age two, and taking formal lessons starting at age ten, he was on a clear path for success. Under the tutelage of teacher, John Fatta, Nick quickly began performing with various musical acts; eventually climbing the ranks in the music industry as an independent session artist.
As of 2011, Nick Mason has performed on countless albums, singles and movie soundtracks. He has appeared in several music videos, orchestrated drum clinics, co-hosted an international music tv show, and regularly appears in percussion trade magazines.
Nick currently lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to be a driving force behind the kit with regular recording sessions, live performances and an ever-growing private teaching practice. Recently he became a member of Street Drum Corps: BANG and can currently be seen touring North America with the group.
