Nik Kershaw signed with MCA Records in 1983. His debut album ‘Human Racing’ gave Nik his first UK top 5 singles with the hits ‘I Won’t let the Sun Go Down on Me’ and ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’ and launched his career worldwide. The equally successful ‘The Riddle’ followed with the title track, ‘Wide Boy’ and ‘Don Quixote’ all reaching the UK top 10 and in 1990, after four MCA albums and sales of over 8 million, Nik left the spotlight to concentrate on song writing and producing. The following years saw him working with many artists including Elton John, Chesney Hawkes, Ronan Keating, The Hollies, Colin Blunstone, Imogen Heap & Gary Barlow.

Nik rekindled his recording career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album ‘15 Minutes’ and has subsequently released three further albums: ‘To Be Frank’ in 2001, ‘You’ve Got To Laugh’ in 2006 and in 2010 the solo acoustic album ‘No Frills’.
