Danish singer-songwriter Ronny Morris debut new alt-rock single “I’ll Survive”. After seeing his music in major TV shows like One Tree Hill, Brothers and Sisters and the Ghost Whisperer the Danish artist new single marks Morris’ latest release with Danish label/publishing group and Reservoir partner Lifted House, with whom Ronny signed as a writer last year.
About the single, Morris says, “A few years back I was invited to record a charity single in support of the families for the 2004 Indian Ocean-tsunami victims together with band members from Small Faces and Ronnie Wood from The Rolling Stones. I was deeply touched about their personal stories and great losses, that I somehow had to find a outlet for all these emotions. I guess ‘I´ll Survive’ came out of that.”
“I’ll Survive” was recorded in Stockholm and New York and produced by Adam Kviman (Eagle Eye Cherry) and Brian Sperber (Moby, 3 Doors Down). In addition to the main edit, several remixes will be made available, including cuts by Sidelmann and Michael A.M.
Morris shot the music video for “I’ll Survive” in New York on Super 8 with Danish director and photographer Thomas Fryd. Check it out  on YouTube

Tod Hughes Quotes and Reviews

Bandblurb

“Hughes clearly establishes himself as an important new talent.”

Skope Magazine

“they certainly serve notice of Tod Hughes’ songwriting skills”

Penweb

“We need more simple albums. On his debut EP Changin’ Gears, Tod Hughes dispenses with eardrum busting production, elaborate song structures, and strident theatricality. He presents listeners with six straightforward songs written about subjects drawn from everyday life and musically tailored along similar lines. The Canadian based singer/songwriter’s gifts are real. He has discernment enough to pull back on the reins enough to entertain audiences instead of letting his self-indulgence fly, but he has a talent for twisting and uncovering illuminating turns of phrase. “

Vents Magazine

“There is a higher intelligence presiding over these songs, but it informs the artistry; it’s the hand behind the curtain. “

‘there’s a refreshing amount of humor throughout the album”

BIO

Tod Hughes hails from Calgary, Canada where he lives with his family.  Tod writes real music that comes from the heart, stories of love, hurt, happiness, fear, disappointment and fun.  A message of hope is thread through the stories, which are at times very serious and other times a bit tongue in cheek.  The toe tapping melodies and memorable choruses will stick in your mind for days after hearing them.  They are told with truth and respect.

“Drinking Coffee in a Hipster Place” is the first single to be released from Tod’s new album “Time Slow Down”.  This is Tod’s first full length album, and is a follow up to his debut EP, “Changing Gears”.  One song on the first album, “Brad’s Song”, (which was written for Tod’s brother who passed away after battling cancer and paralysis), went to number 2 on radio charts in Louisiana, and the album charted in the US and enjoyed significant radio play worldwide.  The album was also picked up for TV by the Discovery Channel, NASCAR Station and others.

The new album continues with the theme of real music, played by real people with little in the way of digital interference.  The musicians on the new album are the regular folks that play live with Tod.

Tod has his own unique style of performing and writing and he draws inspiration from the honesty of songs written by the great storytellers of our time, men like Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, JJ Cale, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen.  Tod loves to have fun and to share these stories live, and along with his band puts on a high energy, compelling live show, which resonates with folks of all ages.

Nashaat Salman is a film and multimedia music composer, instrumentalist and orchestrator. Salman’s career spans over two decades and he has composed music for a few programs for Radio, Television and other multimedia projects. His Universal Melodies project was launched in 2015 with the release of the first (Universal Melodies Vol.1)EP album

Music doesn’t have to be your primary job in order to be your life’s passion. Nashaat Salman works through his days as an engineer and business manager in Zurich, Switzerland. When he’s not pursuing his professional endeavors is when his musical side emerges and he puts his skills as a composer, arranger, and performer to their full use.

Nashaat Salman’s music is also fueled by a drive to make music that can be heard, felt, and appreciated across continents and cultures
In accordance with his views, Nashaat doesn’t classify his songs by genre or himself by a specific musical identity. His music blends elements of Eastern and Western influence with electronica and orchestral themes, depending on what suits the song. There’s no escaping the label of world music, but Nashaat distinguishes himself within the genre by staying true to his vision of blending cultures and making his music as cross-cultural as possible.

Although his musical career has spanned the course of two decades, resulting in numerous compositions for radio, television, and other projects, 2015 is a very important year for Nashaat. In July of 2015 he launches his first EP in what will be a long-running, multi-volume project entitled, Universal Melodies. As the name implies, this project will be a culmination of his musical work and world vision, bringing an experience to listeners that transcends genres and cultures.

One world, one cultural blend, and one main goal of bringing happiness to everyone. This is the vision behind Nashaat Salman’s compositions. Whether he’s writing the score to a film scene or constructing an instrumental passage for his Universal Melodies project, Nashaat is thinking about a global community and making something that can reach and affect everyone.

Fun in the Frozen North: Winter Carnival is Coming to Michigan Tech

It’s almost Winter Carnival time.  Student organizations at Michigan Technological University are perched on scaffolding under lights, working deep into the night on their gigantic snow statues, a month-long effort.

The theme this year is “As snow accumulates at alarming rates, we show our love for the 50 states.”   Statues are expected to reflect that theme.

Winter Carnival, sponsored by the Blue Key Honor Society, officially starts on Wednesday, February 3 and runs through Saturday, February 6, although some activities have already begun, including ice bowling at the Dee Stadium and curling at the Calumet Drill House.

In ice bowling, students curl up in giant plastic shells, while other students hurl them across the ice at oversized duckpins. Curling, of course, has nothing to do with hair. It is the Scottish sport of heaving a round stone down a lane of ice while teammates sweep furiously ahead of the stone with brooms, to help direct its movement and increase its speed.

At 4 p.m. Wednesday, February 3, All-Nighter overnight statue building begins. The Alumni Association will serve hot chocolate from 5 to 8 p.m. at Alumni House. Campus will be lit and lively all night, with karaoke from 9 to 11 p.m. and classic Winter Carnival snacks like chili and deep-fried Twinkies.

Thursday morning, February 4, all statue building ends and judges make the rounds.

Saturday evening, the Winter Carnival hockey game against Lake Superior State University starts at 5:07 p.m. at the MacInnes Student Ice Arena, and at 8:15 p.m. a torchlight ski parade down Mont Ripley will be followed by fireworks.
