A tiny taster. “More sun vicar” said the pop picker. May the workforce be with you! – Nick Heyward translation: A selection of songs from Nick Heyward’s first album in 738 years.
I was a bit of a late starter with the Beatles. I got into them ten years after they’d stopped working together as a band. It was like shopping for clothes at Kensington Market in 1981, because that’s the only place where you could find classic items and that’s what it is with the Beatles […]
A lovely reunion in Key West with Mr Ian Shaw. Great to see him! I made Kite with Ian when we were just a pair of nineties nippers. Now things have channelled beautifully and we both have twitters More fun vicars! To be flap packing my merry way around the bars and cafés of Hemmingway […]
A photo posted by Sara (@mssarajohnson) on Dec 8, 2013 at 11:56am PST The night of Sandra Dickinson’s 3 Nicks Charity Cook-Off began with a fantastic sunset. I attempted to Instagram it, but couldn’t quite do it justice. Later, I tried capturing my curry, but it was a bit blurred. Must have been the heat […]
I have five new species of flowers (songs) ready in the greenhouse (home studio) and I’m very happy with all of them. So, when we make it to a happy ten I will mix them all, master them all and share them all. It’s a joy recording with my son, Oliver. We’ve worked together for […]
This was my holiday soundtrack while in Santorini this past May. (I went early in the year because I didn’t think we had summers in the UK anymore. How wrong was I?!) Anyway, I went nostalgic, I went current, I was swept away, in fact, by the whole caboodle. Music is the food of love. […]
Kevin Woodruff writes, “I have been revisiting some of your albums, especially Tangled. The guitar sound on that album is epic. Do you remember what effects/amps you used to get that sound?” Nick replies, “My particular favourite guitar sound was on ‘She’s Another Girl’. That was from the first recording session at Park Gate Studios […]
Tim Burt asks, “In the video ‘Today’ you had your shirt off for one scene and it looked like you worked out. Do you go to the gym? How do you keep you youthful vigour?” Nick replies, “Thank you, Tim. I was hitting the weights around the time of that video, although not so much […]
Kathy Jones asks, “Do you like cooking and what’s your favourite dish to cook and to eat?” Nick replies, “I love cooking at home because maximum nourishment and an abundance of the sun’s energy are not high on the list of a restaurant’s priorities. I’m feeding my body and soul. The mind does like to […]
Melissa asks, “Nice to see your new and improved site. There have been some twitterings about your upcoming birthday. As you are on the cusp, do you feel you possess more of the characteristics of Taurus or Gemini? Not sure if I can ask two but my second question would be this: Do you enjoy […]
Paul Howden asks, “Hi, I’m fascinated by your relationship with Paul Weller. I think I read once that you did the sleeve design for “In the City” before HC100, then there was the Style Council skit in the “Love All Day” video with the cycling and then some references to Jam songs in your solo […]
Q: Lorraine Poulin asks, “Any plans on doing any US shows?” A: Nick replies, “Last year, I did a surprise appearance in Pasadena. It was a surprise to me as well, I didn’t know I was doing it until I got there! No plans for doing any US shows at present. What’s on the website […]
Max Kane asks, “You stated recently in an interview that you regretted selling your flat in London. Where was it and why did you sell?” Nick replies, “My flat was in Kensington and cost me less than £50k and is now worth more than £1m. Need I say more? LOL”
Q: Dana Torrance from America asks, “have you always been into photography?” A: Nick replies: “Always loved photography. I made songs so I could make sleeves so I could take photos and put titles on them. Nearly got my O Level in photography too. I think it’s the cropping process I most enjoy in photography. […]
