Nik Kershaw

What do you know about Nik Kershaw?
Let's see... "Wouldn't It Be Good", "The Riddle", The 80s, One-Hit-Wonder. Anything else? No?
Let me help you: Nik Kershaw had huge success with his albums "The Riddle" and "Human Racing", after that his album sales went down. After his less successful album "Radio Musicola" in 1989 he disappeared as musician, but not as a songwriter. Chesney Hawkes "The One And Only", which he wrote and co-produced, went straight to number one in the UK in 1991.
In 1999 he decided to release music again under his own name. The albums "15 Minutes", "To Be Frank", You've Got To Laugh" and the new acoustic CD "No Frills" is something I can recommend warmly.
