You might know him as the “baby faced one from The Wanted” but since they went their separate ways last year, Nathan Sykes has reinvented himself, and is preparing to launch a fully fledged solo attack on the charts.
Joining The Wanted as a teenager Nathan has been immersed in the pop world for over five years now, and after weathering a celebrity relationship and consequent split with pop princess Ariana Grande, a worrying operation on his vocal chords, and demise of The Wanted, at the age of only 21 years old he’s already witnessed the highs and lows of the music industry. But, undeterred, his love of music has won above all, and this year sees Nathan release his long-awaited solo material.
Before Christmas we sat down with Nathan’s team for a sneaky listen of what’s in store, and were, to be completely honest, not expecting what we heard. One thing’s for sure, this boy can sing. Through the catchy pop beats and funk-tinged melodies one thing was constant – Nathan’s soulful vocals that you’ll no doubt next hear at the top of the charts. Here, we sit down with Nathan for his exclusive first interview and shoot as a solo artist.
