Nikki Dumag, who recently signed with Australian Management Company, Street Royaltee Music Group, has just released her first international single “He Will Never Be You (Cryin’ Shame)” under Red Bus Music.

“He Will Never Be You (Cryin’ Shame)” is now available across all digital streaming platforms.

Nikki, a singer/songwriter from the Philippines, was born on Jan. 15, 1996. She came from a family of musicians. She has been writing songs since 13 years old and self-taught on piano and guitar.

In 2010 Nikki won a battle of the band’s competition, performing heavily ever since. In 2015, she joined a Music for Peace Ambassadors Music camp where she wrote peace songs for an organization called Teach Peace Build Peace Movement, and recorded one of her songs called “Give Peace A Chance” with notable alumni of the national TV show “Pinoy Dream Academy,” RJ Jimenez.

Written by Edward Fox, Anthony Lavin, John Kerfoot, the single talks about that particular moment when you bump into someone you used to like and then you both start to catch up but realize that once you both part ways, and say goodbye there was something else you wish you could have said. This song essentially talks about what you really wanted to say rather than just catching up.
