Sold Out

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Creatively ambitious from the start, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, 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 1980s burning brightly, but briefly. Following four UK top 10 singles, “Fantastic Day”, “Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)”, “Love Plus One” and “Nobody’s Fool”, 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 The 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 that was featured in John Hughes’ classic film, Sixteen Candles.

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