Ep 248 | An Aeroplane In the Sky

As the son of Roger Waters, who cofounded the band Pink Floyd, and a mother with a bigger record collection than his dad, it’s no surprise that Harry Waters became an accomplished musician. His childhood consisted of touring with his father, learning the piano, and you’ve probably heard his voice as a child in Pink Floyd’s song Goodbye Blue Sky. Today, along with sporting an incredibly long red beard, Harry has become an expert piano and Hammond Organ player, scores films, and performs with his band McNally Waters. He joins me on the podcast to discuss his unique upbringing with music and his techniques in scoring a film.
