80s Orchestral


Nik Kershaw burst onto the UK pop scene in 1984 with a string of global hit singles, including ‘Wouldn’t it Be Good’, ‘The Riddle’, and his biggest hit, ‘I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’. Dominating the UK Singles Chart for 62 weeks through 1984 and 1985, he outshone every other solo artist of the era.

After taking a step back from the limelight to focus on songwriting and producing, Nik penned Chesney Hawkes’s smash hit ‘The One and Only’ and collaborated with industry giants like Elton John, Sia, Gary Barlow, and Bonnie Tyler. Despite his behind-the-scenes work, he continued to release well-received studio albums showcasing his distinctive voice and deeply personal lyrics.

Nik’s recent collaboration with Audio Network for his ninth studio album, “Oxymoron,” marked a return to Abbey Road Studios, evoking nostalgia for his 80s recording days. Recording in the same room where he produced ‘The One and Only’ added a sentimental touch to the project.

Renowned for his masterful songwriting, Nik blends soaring melodies with articulate wordplay and thoughtful lyricism. His latest release, “Oxymoron,” received acclaim from fans and critics alike, following the success of the 6-track EP, “These Little Things,” in summer 2020.

In 2022, Nik delighted fans with the digital release of the “Songs From The Shelf” series, offering a glimpse into his songwriting journey from 1989 to 1998. The first installment, “Songs From The Shelf, Part 1,” was followed by “Part 2” in spring 2023, with “Part 3” eagerly anticipated.
