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.
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.”
Much of 2017 and early 2018 was spent in the studio communicating those emotions in the only way he knows how.
So what of the future? “Unfinished Business was just the beginning” ...
