I. AM. HAYWOODE.
Haywoode's performing career began at an early age at London's Corona Stage Academy, inspired by her iconic father, Don Haywoode of The Velours and The Fantastics.
Her career started with modeling, dancing and acting roles in British television shows, which led to her recording career. Haywoode has appeared in the films, Ragtime, Superman & several others.
She starred in the West End theater production of Bubbling Brown Sugar, and also appeared regularly on Europe's longest running TV show, "Top of The Pops."
Her debut single, "A Time Like This", reached the Top 5 in the US Hot Dance Club Play Chart and established her distinctive brand of soulful funk/pop.
Via a succession of singles – including tracks produced by Stock, Aitken & Waterman, "You'd Better Not Fool Around", "I Can't Let You Go" and "Getting Closer" which was later recorded by Kylie Minogue.
Her hit song "Roses" reached #11 in the UK Pop Charts. Her debut album Arrival includes her tribute to Prince with her rendition of "I Wanna Be Your Lover".
Recently Cherry Red's Cherry Pop label released a digitally-remastered Arrival – Special Edition, featuring seven bonus tracks and in-depth 'making of' article with four new interviews with those involved in its creation (producers Phil Harding and Bruce Nazarian, CBS Executive Steve Ripley and Haywoode).
