He's Back

Bildergebnis für nick heyward

Since the days of Haircut 100's epic album Pelican West I was a fan of Nick Heyward's abilities about writing and arranging great pop songs. This record and his solo records were always an opportunity for me put them on the turntable. The more I was surprised that he released a new record after more than 15 years. That this record entered the record charts in the top twenty surprised me as well and when I listen to his new songs I have to admit that he didn't lost his ability to write great songs. It is not the best record this year so far but there were a lot songs on it that will grow and get your friend the more you will listen to them. If someone was searching for the perfect pop song, Nick Heyward is very close to it. A great artist is back with a bucket full of great songs. Good to have him back.

Very strong songs Walter. I've always had a lot of time for Nick's writing.

Big fan, Walter. In fact, I was going to do a post on the album this week, but I think you have covered it just fine. Will be buying this one.

Mrs CC has a couple of his albums which I have never listened to. Must rectify that

Nick Heyward is one of the few pop stars I ever met during my time in radio. He was a really nice guy: came in for an interview, then stuck around in the office for a chat. I always loved his early pop stuff, but think somwe of his later, lesser known stuff is even better. Looking forward to the new record.
