Creatively ambitious from the start, Nick Heyward began his career as the songwriter and frontman of Haircut 100. Marrying Chic with The Monkees they rode the post-new-romantic-funk-wave of the early 1980’s burning brightly but briefly. Following four UK Top Ten singles and their debut album, Pelican West, going platinum, the band parted ways.

North Of A Miracle, Heyward’s first solo album saw him working with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to craft pop landscapes incorporating full orchestra, a jazz band and catchy pop – funk all knitted together with top-flight songwriting featured in John Hughes classic film, Sixteen Candles.

Continuing to record through the 80’s, Heyward found his stride with 1993’s From Monday to Sunday. Lead single Kite took off in the burgeoning alternative scene in the USA and had Heyward touring with the likes of the Lemonheads and Tony Bennett and reached number 4 in the Billboard Alternative Chart. The follow-up album, Tangled, was more pure power pop and lead to Heyward signing to Creation Records for his final album of the 90’s, The Apple Bed.

Critic’s favourite, Woodland Echoes (2017), Heyward’s most recent release saw him return to touring with shows in the UK, USA and Europe.
