NICK HEYWARD + Support from Isabella Coulstock

Following a huge 2023 with Haircut 100 playing the BBC Radio 2 Piano Room, a sell-out London reunion show at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire and a joyous tour of the UK and Ireland; Nick Heyward sets off on his first solo tour since the critically acclaimed Woodland Echoes album release tour in 2018.

Join Nick and his four-piece band for songs from across his entire 40+ year career with a preview of new material.

Creatively ambitious from the start, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Nick Heyward, began his career as the songwriter and frontman of Haircut 100. Marrying Chic with The Monkees, they rode the post-new-romantic-funk-wave of the early 1980s burning brightly, but briefly. Following four UK top 10 singles, “Fantastic Day”, “Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)”, “Love Plus One” and “Nobody’s Fool”, and their debut album, Pelican West, going platinum, the band parted ways.

North of a Miracle, Heyward’s first solo album saw him working with The Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to craft pop landscapes incorporating full orchestra, a jazz band and catchy pop-funk all knitted together with top-flight songwriting that was featured in John Hughes’ classic film, Sixteen Candles.

Continuing to record through the 80s, Heyward found his stride again with 1993’s From

Monday to Sunday. Lead single “Kite” took off in America’s burgeoning alternative scene, reached #4 in the Billboard Alternative Chart, and found Heyward touring the country with the likes of The Lemonheads and Tony Bennett. The follow-up album, Tangled, was more pure power pop and lead to Heyward signing to Creation Records for his final album of the 90s, The Apple Bed.

Critic’s favourite, Woodland Echoes (2017), Heyward’s most recent release saw him return to touring with shows in the UK, USA and Japan.

From a live Under The Apple Tree session for Bob Harris at just 13, and playing at iconic venues such as The Troubadour, The Half Moon, The Bedford in Balham and The Green Note, Isabella has gone on to perform at some of the most iconic venues, arts centres, theatres, arenas and festivals across the country.

She has most recently been on tour supporting THE WHO, where she gave an incredible solo performance at the O2 Arena and continued with the band onto Derby, Durham and Brighton. Previous to that she joined acclaimed New York based singer songwriter Nell Bryden on her 2023 UK tour.

Isabella has also been supporting Jools Holland on his summer and winter tours every year since she was 17. She is currently 22 years old.
