Nick Heyward in conversation with Oldham Chronicle journalist Simon Smedley

Jul 18, 2017, 08:00 AM

IT'S little wonder the epic Cotton Clouds Festival is edging ever closer to becoming a sell-out when you've got legendary artists like Nick Heyward on the bill. Kent-born Heyward, now 56, will always be most fondly remembered by many as the front-man in early 80s popsters Haircut 100, but far fewer of those punters will probably realise that the 'Fantastic Day' and 'Love Plus One' star has been a solo artist since 1983 and released eight other albums in the intervening years. Listen to Heyward speaking exclusively to Oldham Chronicle music writer Simon Smedley about Cotton Clouds, and his exciting new album, which will be released in a fortnight.
