Nathan Sykes made his solo US debut with a sold out show at Gramercy Theatre in New York City last night. Nathan made a name for himself as the youngest and arguably the strongest vocalist in the British boyband, The Wanted which has since disbanded. After a few minor set backs like vocal surgery, Nathan is ready to take over the pop world! He’s armed with a velvety smooth voice and a classic sound that even your parents will love. And trust us, the man can SING.
A few hours before the show started, Nathan had tweeted that he was feeling under the weather and he wasn’t sure if he could even make the show. But he pulled through and sounded incredible! Nathan still hit every note and gave 110% into his performance. You never know what to expect from a debut show where the crowd doesn’t know all the songs, but Nathan had the house dancing from start to finish. In between songs, Nathan announced his debut solo album will be released in January 2016 in the United States. We can’t wait to hear recorded versions of our favorite songs from last night like “Twist,” “Freedom,” and “Money.”
It was a fitting place for Nathan to launch his solo career. The Wanted played a show at Gramercy Theatre that was “where it all began,” for the band, as Nathan mentioned during the show. After last night, we’re sure that this is also the start of something new and exciting and we can’t wait to be along for the ride! We love Nathan’s 60s rat pack style and sound, and the fact that he plays with a full, 8 piece band, including a horn section. Oh, and did we mention Nathan can DANCE? It’s always a question mark whether or not a boyband member can go solo, but we just might have another JT.
