Behind The Scenes of Nicky’s ‘Sunlight’ Lyric Video

Nicky’s ‘Sunlight’ Lyric Video is doing so well! And doesn’t he look amazing in it? Well, Michelle Regazzoli Stone did Nicky’s makeup that day, and she blogged about her experience, saying that he is a very friendly person and it was a pleasure working with him. Read below:

Everyday is different as a make up artist, you don’t know what you could be called out to do, it makes it so exciting and spontaneous, thus the reason you need a varied kit!

While on my way to Ceira Lambert’s Hair consultancy in Shankill, the boss “Lady Lambert” called to ask if I could go over to do some male make up. Strangely (on a Saturday) I had a two hour gap so could go and do the job. After she sent me the address she decided to inform me it was for a video shoot with Westlife member Nicky Byrne, just a bit exciting who doesn’t love “Westlife”.

This shoot was for his debut solo single “Sunlight” which turns out he will be representing Ireland in the “Eurovision Song Contest” mega exciting.

Nicky is such a friendly person, it was a pleasure to work with him and the film crew.
Delighted he will represent Ireland in this years Eurovision Song Contest. The song is super catchy, a real feel good song!

Best of Luck Nicky!

Nicky On The Cover of Irish Daily Mail’s Weekend Magazine

Nicky is on the cover of today’s Irish Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine! For those who don’t live in Ireland and can’t read the article anywhere, I uploaded the pictures to the Gallery. Click on them to see their full size:

Here are some of the highlights from the interview. Really worth the read!

On finding his sound and ‘wow-ing’ people:

“When I went to write a solo album I even surprised myself. Ronan Hardiman deserves a lot of credit because he instilled a lot of confidence in me when I got to the songwriting process. He couldn’t believe my tone and he told me that I had a real sweet spot in my voice that was best in a certain range and we tried to capitalise on that and he believed that we would shock a lot of people and hopefully we have.”

On his upcoming Eurovision performance:

“It does need a big performance and we have Lee Lodge on board who has produced the Grammys and VMAs as well as One Direction concerts so hopefully he will dream up something incredible and I can deliver it on the night. Right now we are assembling five backing singers to create the performance and they have to be brilliant.”

On his former Westlife bandmates and their reaction to the news:

“We are brothers and we never lost that bond so we are all doing really well in our own fields. I am sure they all went, ‘holy s**t, what is he doing?’ but then they saw the song and the video and got what I was doing. They have all worked with Wayne and they are very musical and they probably got it and went, ‘Only Nicky would do something like this…’.”

On the Eurovision results:

“The pressure is huge. Don’t get me wrong at the end of the day it is me standing on the stage and I am under no illusions as to what could happen. I thought long and hard about it because everything is going so well, radio is flying, I’m really happy at home and the kids are in school and healthy and happy. Why do you want to put yourself up to this? But life is short, I know it is a decent song and I am a fighter. I am very Irish and I don’t want to see us not qualify. That doesn’t mean I will guarantee that but I will do all the Press and promotion and do the video and call on the biggest names to mix it and if we fall short it won’t be for lack of effort.”

On his family and Georgina’s support throughout his career:

“If I qualify we will all want to be in the same country on the one night. So whatever happens I will be able to go and give them a hug in Stockholm. I’m guessing I will be away doing promo in early May so I will miss Georgina’s birthday, which won’t be ideal. Look, if there was a Golden Globe for best supporting wife she would win it hands down. She has stood by and supported me through Westlife, Strictly, the football career before that – and now Eurovision. When I first considered this I went to her, she just said ‘If you think you can do this then go and do it. Why would you let your fear stop you if you think you can do it?’ And that is just how amazing she is.”
