Manuel K is #Flyah





Manuel K is an independent rock singer, guitarist, keyboard player and songwriter from Switzerland. Manuel K was formerly known as lead singer and guitarist of the rock bands Nextmile and Rockcousins which are on longtime hiatus. That’s why Manuel K started his solo project in 2013.
His first single “Back to Guitars (Demo)” was released digitally on January 31, 2013 worldwide. “Back to Guitars” is a guitar-driven blues-rock song. The second single „Tonight” is an emotional love-song and was released on June 22, 2013 as digital download worldwide too.
In July/August 2013 Manuel K was number 1 on the national ReverbNation Rock charts for Switzerland for 4 weeks nonstop.
On January 31, 2014 Manuel K released his third single “Live Without You (2014)”. It is a stunning rock ballad and without any doubt Manuel K’s most sophisticated and best production yet. The first version 
of the song was released by Manuel K’s former project Rockcousins in 2009. Due to the fact that shortly after the release of “Live Without You” Rockcousins went separate ways, only a few people heard the song. Therefore Manuel K decided last year to release a totally new version of the song in 2014. As before Manuel K produced, recorded and played vocals, backing vocals, guitars, keyboards and percussion loops at his home studio. Manuel K also has written the song with a little help from cousin and former Rockcousins member Raphael F who played bass. Kenny Aronoff played drums, one of the world’s most influential and in demand drummers. The drums were recorded at Uncommon Studios LA, USA by Nathan Staley. The song was mixed by internationally well-experienced sound engineer Delwyn Brooks in Vancouver BC, Canada. The mastering was done by Adam Ayan at renowned Gateway Mastering Studios Portland ME, USA.
From April to July 2014 Manuel K’s single “Live Without You (2014)” entered the Digital Radio Tracker airplay charts (USA). Peak: #13 on the DRT National Airplay Top 50 Rock Chart 5/3/2014, #26 on the DRT National Airplay Top 50 Independent Chart 5/31/2014 and #165 on the DRT National Airplay Top 200 Chart 5/31/2014. Furthermore Manuel K’s third single “Live Without You (2014)” (Songwriters: Manuel K and Raphael F) received the ‘Runner Up‘ placement in the “Song of the Year” songwriting contest in July 2014. In October 2014, Manuel K did incredibly well again. His second single “Tonight” (Songwriter: Manuel K) received the ‘Semi-Finalist‘ placement in the “Song of the Year” songwriting contest“!
Manuel K’s music is available on CD BabyiTunesAmazon and other online music stores worldwide.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MANUEL K'S ROCK BURSTING OUT OF SWITZERLAND INTO THE USA
Live Without You Single Highlight of Shining Solo Career Set To Go Higher
Azmoos, SG, Switzerland – August 30th, 2014 – Switzerland might have a reputation for being neutral, but Manuel K's music is anything but! The singer-songwriter indie rock musician takes his cue from U2, Keith Urban and The Cure -- influences that are clear to hear in his music.
"Yeah, I am known as the lead singer and guitarist from Nextmile and Rockcousins, but right now they're on hiatus," says Manuel. "But I guess I didn't want to just stop! Not after 50 live gigs, performances on the TV and getting radio play across Switzerland... it's kind of addictive..." he smiled.
Manuel K has had radio play on many radio stations, both on- and offline, including Radio Grischa, Radio Canal 3, Live365, Independent Radio Trier, MuseBoat Radio, KDTN Radio One, THNK Radio, TempoRadio, Sound Machine Radio and Radio InterDual, with even more playing his solo music, especially his third single, Live Without You, which peaked at 13 on the DRT National Airplay Top 50 Rock Chart in the United States, as well as receiving a runner up placement in a Song of The Year contest in July 2014.
Not content to rest on his laurels, Manuel plans to release his fourth single, along with a debut album, and is currently looking into a promotional tour to get the music out to fans, both old and new.
Manuel K's music can be heard on SoundCloud, ReverbNation, YouTube and MySpace.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
