Biography

British Nick Heyward had a modestly successful solo career after leaving band Haircut 100, beginning with the 1983 album North Of A Miracle (#10 U.K.). This album produced three U.K. top 20 hits: Heyward’s first solo hit, “Whistle Down The Wind” (#13), “Take That Situation” (#11), and “Blue Hat For A Blue Day” (#14).

Heyward’s second album Postcards From Home, released in 1986, spawned two further top U.K. 40 hits: “Love All Day” (#31) and “Warning Sign” (#25). Heyward’s subsequent albums include I Love You Avenue (1988), From Monday To Sunday (1992), which landed Heyward an American radio hit with “Kite”, and Tangled (1995). Although his mainstream popularity has faded since the 80s, he continues to tour.

    Always had a soft spot for Mr Heyward, right from the Haircut days. Great solo stuff too, excellent ear for melody. How do you live without sunshine?
