Heading over to my hometown of Chicago we have Austin Fillmore with his newest release ‘U Lie I Cry”, a song about heartbreak. Austin has set out to confront the fear of emotional pain and has even created the movement #ThinkgLessFeelMore which encourages his fans to feel everything they need to feel by submitting to their emotions. In his new song he does just that, he submits to his heartbreak and takes us on a journey to how he got there.

Austin has been making a name for himself on Chicago’s local scene and you may have already seen him on A Taste of, Lyrical Lemonade, Elevator, and Chicago’s Kiss FM. He has also recently graced some of the Midwest’s biggest stages, including the North Coast Music Festival and countless other local staples! His performance on Chicago’s #1 Morning Show “The Jam” has marked Austin as a star on the rise in Chicago. Austin has teamed up with Remy Prosper, a producer/composer and songwriter from my current location Miami, Fl. So let’s get right to it and see what this duo has brought us.
