Mini Biography"I want my music to live longer than I do" - Nathan Sykes
Since the release of his solo music in 2015, Nathan Sykes has already topped the US Billboard Dance chart with his debut single 'Kiss Me Quick' and follow up 'Over And Over Again', embarked on a sell out headline UK tour, performed his first US live solo performance on Good Morning America and headlined his show at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City - which sold out in just 10 minutes.
In 2016 People magazine named him 'The Voice' in their 'Ones To Watch' feature, he wowed with appearances on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve and the Late Late Show with James Corden as well as Live with Kelly & Michael. He also toured the UK with Little Mix on the biggest arena tour of the year, and with Alessia Cara in the US.
Nathan's much-anticipated debut album 'Unfinished Business' was released in November 2016. For Nathan, this album had to be personal, or there was no point. "Every song is written about experience; it's either about someone or about something I've gone through," he explained at the time. "Sometimes, in life, if I was to tell someone to their face how I really felt, I'd just be a complete mess. I've always been like that - until the moment I get on stage. So it makes sense for me to put my feelings into songs. Sometimes it even feels like I need to, to be able to communicate my emotions."
The album featured collaborations with Babyface, Harmony Samuels and Diane Warren. At the album's heart: a voice that will surprise many with its range and versatility, across songs that take in R&B, pop and the jazz-inflected tones of artists Nathan obsessed over as a teenager. Rolling Stone Magazine's response to his new music was "the young singer's new voice: a more soulful, lounge-y, big band-tinged pop croon that shines." whilst Huffington Post said 'With his powerful vocal chords that transcends genres, and musical influences such as Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder, it's no small surprise that former boy band resident Nathan Sykes is projected to become one of the biggest game-changers of the music industry." As well as 'Kiss Me Quick' and 'Over And Over Again', the album featured top 3 single 'Famous' and fan favourite 'There's Only One Of You'.
The album peaked at number 2 in the UK iTunes chart and top ten in the US pop chart.
Nathan spent part of 2017 in Asia and the trip included his first visit to Seoul where he performed to a sold out crowd at his debut headline show before commencing work on his follow up album. So what of the future? "Unfinished Business was just the beginning".
