Niles Mason is the talented singer and songwriter whose recent collaboration with David Guetta and Afrojack, immediately placed him in the global spotlight. Niles Mason may be one of the newer names on the international dance scene but is one who has been making serious waves this year. Since leaving Berklee College of Music, Niles has spent several years putting in some serious studio time, writing songs and working on productions with a partner under the name Coalition. His first recording session was as part of a choir and he also starred in a musical play alongside Glen Jones before auditioning for American Idol and playing in a range of local venues around Atlanta. In 2009 Niles secured a major breakthrough when he signed a publishing agreement with Warner Chappell – a deal that was to prove crucial in bringing his talents to the attention of major artists.
Initially working with Toni Braxton, Niles wrote the opening track ‘Yesterday’ on her 2010 Pulse LP and then subsequently went onto work with David Guetta and Afrojack on ‘Louder Than Words’ – a track that hit the national sales charts across Europe and received widespread international radio support. Further collaborations with David Guetta followed alongside work with the likes of Sebastian Drums and Discofly. Niles has made live appearances in clubs across US and Canada performing both the hit single ‘Louder Than Words’ and a number of other songs such as ‘Born To Fly’.
