Nick Kamen - Biography

Ivor Neville "Nick" Kamen (born 15 April 1962 in Harlow, Essex, England) is an English male model, songwriter and musician, and brother of session guitarist Chester Kamen and artist Barry Kamen. Kamen attended St Marks RC Comprehensive School in Harlow along with his brothers Barry and Chester. Kamen was first brought to the public's attention in 1984 when Ray Petri featured him on the front cover of The Face. The cover showed him wearing a ski-hat, lipstick, orange roll-neck sweater and aviator sunglasses.
He is most remembered, in the UK, for his 1985 performance in Levi's "Launderette" television commercial, where he strips down to stone-wash his blue jeans in a 1950s style public laundromat while he waits clad only in his Sunspel boxer shorts, which was one of a series of Bartle Bogle Hegarty advertisements that dramatically increased the popularity of Levi 501s. The commercial, directed by Roger Lyons, was selected for, and came fourth in, The 100 Greatest TV Ads in 2000.

Kamen's second album Us (1988) was produced by Patrick Leonard. Madonna again made an appearance as a backing vocalist on the song "Tell Me", this time without contributing to the songwriting or production. In 1989 Kamen performed the song "Turn It Up" on the soundtrack to Walt Disney's film, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. 1990 saw the release of one of his biggest hits. The single "I Promised Myself", from the album Move Until We Fly, reached Number 1 in eight European countries and was the fourth most played record in Europe in 1990. The song was later covered by Dead or Alive (1999), A-Teens (2004), Basshunter (2009) and most recently German punk rockers Maggers United (2013).
