His latest work, after the 2012 album "Ei8ht", is "Oxymoron", released in 2020.
With a flute player for a father and an opera singer for a mother, Nik Kershaw was practically born with a love of music. Nevertheless, he describes himself as a late developer and only showed his interest when he saw David Bowie on TV at the age of 15.
Through him and inspirations like T-Rex, Deep Purple, Genesis and Simon & Garfunkel, Nik Kershaw became one of THE pop stars of the 80s.
It all started in 1983 when he released his acclaimed hit single "I won't let the sun go down" in September, which reached number 47 in the UK charts and stormed the charts on its second release, reaching number 2.
Followed by this, the song "Wouldn't It Be good" was released in January 1984, directly following his success and making the international breakthrough. By then, at the latest, everyone knew the name Nik Kershaw.
His first, groundbreaking album "Human Racing" reached international platinum status.
Two European tours, four more singles and another platinum album "The Riddle" followed - all before the end of 1984.
He played sold-out tours all over the world: from Europe to Canada, Australia, the USA and even to Japan. Everyone wanted to hear Nik and his groundbreaking songs.
Nik always kept his finger on the pulse and gave his fans what they asked for: three more hit singles and the two albums "Radio Musicola" and "The Works" were released.
In addition, a spectacular performance at "Live Aid", the concert still remembered by generations.
