Biography:

Nick Lachey is traveling with spirit, elegance and a sense of humor. "What's Left Of Me" is a picture of a moment in his life, and is as revealing as it is complete in its musical path of the troubles confronted and life's lessons learned.

It would not be easy for the singer and writer to forget the past four years of his life, where his personal world became a prime time tabloid sensation for television audiences and the media around the globe. In 2003,  Nick and his wife Jessica Simpson were shot from simple pop celebrity to Hollywood cultural icons and sexy celebrity status, over the three season long runaway hit television series from MTV "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica." 

That seemingly simple television show propelled the duo into their next series titled "Nick & Jessica Variety Hour", broadcast specials on the ABC television network. This classic series was intended to be a revival of sorts of the 1970's feel good family show "Sonny & Cher". During their series the couple visited soldiers, and veterans alike, while on an extended series shoot in Iraq.

Today, Lachey is focusing his talents toward his first passion, music. His latest project boasts twelve full-bodied songs and the smash single from the album "What's Left of Me." Within weeks of the album release it had rocketed several singles onto the Billboard Top 40, setting the pace as the fastest rising single of the year.  The song was introduced on AOLMusic.com in early 2006 and shot to the "Most Played Song" in the web sites two year history of providing music on the internet.  

The musician collaborated in the development of eight songs on the album, which, are most noteworthy for their brisk, splendidly orchestrated, classic pop character.  On the smash hit song "I Can't Hate You Anymore," he laments, "We built it up to watch it fall, Like we meant nothing at all, I gave and gave the best of me, but couldn't give you what you need, You walked away and stole my life."

In April 2006, MTV offered a candid view inside the daily life of the musician as he geared up to release his CD with the two hour special television presentation of, "Nick Lachey: What's Left Of Me."  This broadcast was followed by the MTV world premiere of his new video "What's Left Of Me", next to a behind the scenes special, and candid look inside how the video was made.

He stretched his entrepreneurial and business talents with the launch of Yfly.com, a chat and social networking internet site for teens, resembling a weird mix between Myspace, YouTube, and Microsoft Messenger.  

Songs of liberation also fill the CD, like the catchy, "On Your Own," where he announces, "I will wait, However long it takes, until you realize what you've been searching for, Was right here all along." The album sadly ends with the gracefully meager "Resolution," an amazing showcase for the singers contributions. Accompanied only by piano, Lachey reveals, "I'm letting go, All I need to learn is along this road, I just want do be the best man I can be."

The anthology also contains teamwork with Swedish super uber song writing and production squad, Andreas Carlsson, Anders Bagge and Peer Astron on five on the songs, like "Beautiful," which consoles, "Don't ever let the mirror tell you lies, Just look at the reflection through my eyes."

The Kentucky resident was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Nick's earliest love was to grow his innate athletic talents into a career in sports medicine. But Nick and his sibling Drew's musical talents were absolute, and both were accepted to study at the Cincinnati School for the Creative and Performing Arts.

As an undergraduate at the Miami University in Ohio, the singer and friend Jeff Timmons tried out for a choral squad that integrated Drew, and his friend Justin Jeffre. The quartet became the bigger then life smash musical group "98 Degrees", and after auditioning for various record companies in Los Angeles, they were signed with Motown. 

In 1997, "Invisible Man" became the first of a run of smash hits for "98 Degrees", reaching number twelve on the Billboard Top 100 music charts, and helping the band's album shoot to "gold record" standing. Other well produced songs, "Because of You" and "The Hardest Thing" both reached the top five, and "I Do Cherish You" spiked to number thirteen. The CD's music and lyrics helped jet the groups second album "98 Degrees and Rising" to quadruple platinum status. The quartet, yet again, reached the top 40 with its holiday runaway smash hit, "This Gift" from the album "This Christmas".

The band then struck the ultimate gold mine when asked to join with Mariah Carey's on her single, "Thank God I Found You". With this massive attention and exposure, "98 Degrees" reached the desirable No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and on the R&B Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. The song was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.

Triple platinum "Revelation," during the summer of 2000, introduced a more jumpy sound, with the steamy number 2 song "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)", and jazzed up "The Way You Want Me To."

During 2002, the band put its business on break with the thirteen song assembly titled, "Ninety-Eight Degrees: The Collection," which included, "True To Your Heart," a double act with the renowned Stevie Wonder. In total, Lachey, Drew, Jeff and Justin sold over ten million records since the inception of the quartet..

In the center of the intensity circling, "Newlyweds" he released his first solo performance CD, "Soul-O" in  late 2003, which incorporated the dreamy track "This I Swear" which was the theme music for his television show.  The song reached number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

He continued to be a driving force on television after landing a ten episode part in the WB series "Charmed", as well as guest appearances on ABC's "Hope & Faith," both produced and broadcast during the 2004 ratings season. 

On top of all that, during 2005 he starred as a a Wall Street stock broker who turns to the jewelry business when the stress of life begins to take its toll on him physically in the flick "The Hard Easy" (2005), about two separate teams of jewel thieves, one low-rent and one upscale, both desperate, who converge on the same score at the exact same time, and a simple job turns out very complicated and very bloody.

Also in 2005, he appeared in the comedy "Bewitched" (2005) with Nicole Kidman, about an egocentric actor who thinks he can overshadow an unknown actress in a part, but unknowingly gets a witch cast in an upcoming television remake of the classic show "Bewitched". Also in 2007 Nick Lachey appeared in the  horror thriller "Rise" (2007) with Lucy Liu, a supernatural thriller in which a female reporter wakes up in a morgue to find herself a member of the undead. She vows revenge against the sect that put her there and hunts them down.
