Australia’s Nick Chilli Haze leads the way with new single ‘City Lights‘ and this is a superb effort.

The small town Australian kid moved to Hollywood to chase his dreams. This is the story here, the life was set and everything was going so well, playing at all the venues and really going for it.

However with the strength inside and his memory so clear to see to do what they plan was no matter what, this is a sad story but one of strength.
