Nik Kershaw

During the mid-'80s, Nik Kershaw managed to score a handful of pop hits and, in doing so, establish himself as a profitable commercial songwriter. Kershaw began his musical career by learning to play guitar when he was a teenager. In 1974, he joined his first band, Half Pint Hogg, which played nothing but Deep Purple covers. However, his musical ideas were not limited to heavy metal; after he left school, he joined a jazz-funk band called Fusion. Fusion released one album, 'Til I Hear From You, in the late '70s. Once the group broke up, Kershaw signed to MCA Records with the help of Nine Below Zero's manager, Micky Modern.

Kershaw released his first solo single, "I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," in 1983; it peaked at number 47 on the U.K. charts. His next single, "Wouldn't It Be Good," hit number five in the U.K. and charted at number 46 in the U.S. Its success led to stardom in Britain for Kershaw; "I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" was re-released in summer of 1984 and charted at number two, leading to a series of hit singles. Released in 1986, his third album, Radio Musicola, wasn't as successful as his previous albums. Kershaw subsequently retreated from performing and recording regularly. Although he released The Works in 1990, Kershaw's main musical contribution since the late '80s is as a songwriter; he's written several songs for other artists, including Chesney Hawke's hit single "The One and Only." After years of writing for others, Kershaw returned with his own 15 Minutes for Pyramid Records. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Nik released Ei8ht last year, and I have to say its glorious. Catch up, listen. His work is poetic, beautiful, and full of real emotion. Particularly listen to The Sky is the Limit.

Saw Nik in concert double-bill with Kim Wilde in Sydney in Oct 2013. He's a brilliant talent. Lost nothing, if anything - better. Heaps of fun.

Nik is truly one of the 80's biggest super heroes.
I am new to the cyber world,recent l y discovered a lot of Nik's hits on Pandora. I had listened to his popular stuff before,but discovered so much more. I am impressed with what i'm hearing so far. Cloud 9 is one of my favorites as well as a lot of others. Nik didn't get the attention he so greatly deserved,esp e c i a l l y here in the U.S. He is a great singer and songwriter. More power to ya Nik!
Glad to see Nik getting the respect he deserves. Truly great! And such a guitarist, when he chooses to show it.
They broke the mold with Nik. Always a favorite
Saw Nik live in the eighties. Hands down the BEST concert I've seen and I've been to hundreds. Still love him.

I completely agree with those of you who really listen to Nik's words and music. His is Genius! I would absolutely pay to see him perform. I love his play on words....
Yeah... Frank Zappa-style xylophone.
Makes me think of the Mothers of Invention... somewhat.

Why can't you buy this song as a single?

Nik is one of the most talented singers/song w r i t e r s / m u s i c i a n s / p r o d u c e r s of our time. Nik, come to the US and do a small tour. Make a vacation out of it! There's a bunch of fans of yours here. With viral marketing we could get the word out. Common' man!
I like his songs
