The album “Glitter to the Neon lights” has a wide range of songs from the catchy “Teardrops (On The Disco Floor)” to the more tranquil “Our Last Night On Earth”.

One of our personal favourites has to be “On Your Marks Get Set Go Away” – a very powerful, feel good song where Nicki sings about the end of a relationship, but getting on with it after he’s gone. As well as her own songs Nicki has also included two brilliant covers, “Poison” (originally by Alice Cooper) and  “Cold As Ice” by Foreigner.
