Nick Heyward

Friday 12 Apr 20198:00pm Book Now

Thrust into the limelight in 1982 with the success of Pelican West, the pop-funk masterpiece that he recorded with his first band Haircut 100, Nick Heyward and his friends played the pop game perfectly, riding the post-new romantic funk wave and marrying Chic with the Monkees.


Haircut 100 burnt briefly and brightly, hitting the big time within a year, scoring four Top 10 singles including Love Plus One and Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl), before finishing as quickly as they began.


Nick’s first solo album, North Of A Miracle, reached number 10 in the charts, and he went on to release a string of critically acclaimed records over the next 30 years on a host of major labels.


The 2017 album, Woodland Echoes, is perhaps Nick’s most accomplished and assured to date and he will be performing songs from this, as well as his impressive back catalogue, on an intimate acoustic duo tour through spring.
