Award-winning singer, songwriter drops his next powerful rock song
Manuel K just released his highly anticipated fourth single “Follow You”. After months of writing, recording, and production, Manuel K is ready to explode back on the scene with another hit song. His first three singles “Back to Guitars (Demo)”, “Tonight” and “Live Without You (2014)” have been met with tremendous fanfare worldwide. In the summer of 2013 Manuel K was Number 1 on the ReverbNation Rock charts for Switzerland for four weeks straight. His third single “Live Without You (2014)” was featured on music blogs and played by many online radio stations around the globe. From April to July 2014 the track entered the Digital Radio Tracker airplay charts in the USA peaking at #13 for their Rock Chart.
Manuel K is not only a talented singer and musician, he has been recognized in songwriting contests. “Live Without You (2014)” (Songwriters: Manuel K and Raphael F) received the Runner Up Songwriting Award for the Song of the Year songwriting contest in July 2014. In October 2014, “Tonight” (Songwriter: Manuel K) reached the Semi-Final round in the same contest. Manuel K says, “Recording “Follow You” was a great journey and adventure. I recorded my own vocal and guitar parts in my home studio. For the other parts, I worked with incredible, talented session musicians, mixing and mastering engineers from the USA and Canada to get the best result as possible. I wanted this to be a powerful rock song with many great guitar parts to get back to the roots of great rock. So I purposely went without keyboards, programmed loops or samples.”
“Follow You“ was created with recordings from well-known session musician Kenny Aronoff on drums and percussion at “Uncommon Studios L.A.” engineered by David Jenkins , Mike Brignardello on bass in his own studio “Miracle Sounds” in Nashville TN and Grammy Award winner Brent Mason on additional guitars recorded at “Gas Money” in Nashville TN by Herb Shucher. The song was mixed in Vancouver BC by well-experienced sound engineer Delwyn Brooks and mastered at “The Green Jacket” by Greg Reely.
