We are all desperately sad to have heard the news of Nigel Grainge’s passing. It had been a real joy to reconnect with Nigel in the past year since we became the effective custodians of his iconic label Ensign Records, discussing with him all the great signings he made, including of course Sinéad O’Connor and The Waterboys.
He unearthed from his vast collection a variety of demos, out-takes and alternative versions that were a joy to listen to. More than anything else it was such a pleasure, as in years past, to hear him talk with knowledge, passion and enthusiasm about the music he cared for. Those were the qualities that guided him through his career. He should be an example and inspiration for all people, young and old, who make their living working with this precious commodity that he loved so much. Nigel we will miss you.
