Kate Nash discusses musicians rights with Paul McCartney

The two share a cuppa during the chat

Kate Nash has revealed she recently debated the merits and shortcomings of the music industry over a cup of tea with Paul McCartney.

Nash met the legend while working for the newly established Featured Artists’ Coalition, of which she is a board member alongside the likes of Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien and Blur‘s Dave Rowntree.

The coalition, which was launched earlier this month, is run by musicians, for musicians. Nash said it aims to “protect artists’ rights and to give them (us) a seat at the table…to have relationships with governments”.

Nash blogged of her encounter with the former Beatle on her MySpace page.

“I even got a chance to have a sit down meeting with Paul McCartney. A cup of tea with Macca,” she wrote.

“I felt like ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ I tell you, sitting there and talking about his experiences and listening to stories about him and John [Lennon] signing their deal and making ‘Sgt Pepper’s’. Wow wow wow. Very happy indeed, what a privilege.”

The ‘Foundations’ singer also revealed she was busy rehearsing new material for her forthcoming second album.
