People's Champ Video Now Online
While working on their latest album release, Dime Ops piano player Willerm Delisfort, requested that Mic Nickels write to one of his compositions. The result has become a fan favorite at live shows, with a song that represents the persevering power of the human spirit. People's Champ is an anthem for all the underdogs out there that power through this difficult world that we live in, in the face of adversity each day, and how we triumph. To add to the dimension of this track, Boyd from Phantom Vanity was invited as the vocal feature and crushed. Nickels reunited with director Luis Moya to create this powerful visual.
