Mikkel Solnado - Back to life

Mikkel Solnado was born October 1975 in Copenhagen, Denmark to the Son of Portuguese Actor Raul Solnado and his Danish Mother, Hanne Louise.. At 6 months old the family relocated to Portugal.


"We Can Do Anything" was the first single to launch Mikkel into the limelight. It started as a television ad for Volkswagen, but that quickly led people to call the ad agency to ask where they could buy the song. It was then that the agency proposed to help the musician and his band, and offered them a chance to record a video clip in Colombia. Suddenly a song written for an advert helped change Mikkel´s direction once again and Mikkel followed his passion to play again..The Monopolies and bureaucracy in Danish Radio at the time and the band´s differences in opinion of directions led Mikkel to move on to a solo career. With the death of his father, Raul Solnado in August 2009, the musician experienced a turnaround in his life and career. In Portugal, Mikkel´s friend Andre Cerqueira presented the song "We Can Do anything "on Commercial Radio and Mikkel found success.Tired of living in Denmark, he decided to return to Portugal especially after falling in love. With the arrows pointing to the destination Portugal, Mikkel Solnado moved to Lisbon, where he currently lives. Inspired by artists like Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley, Coldplay and John Mayer, Mikkel says his sound is noisy, dirty and dusty mixed with great melody. His career as both Musician and Producer continues to grow.."

At La Brava - Volume Two Of Red Desert Saga, by Souq

"Souq is a portuguese rock band formed in 2009.
Picking from their rock roots, Souq embraces psychedelia, blues, pop or jazz to build a sound that is always dynamic and hard-hitting, as if Captain Beefheart was playing Dave Brubeck songs with Black Sabbath as a backing band. The first result is the concept album "At La Brava - Volume Two Of Red Desert Saga", out now"

Neusa's insight:

Is SOUQ the next big thing in rock music?

HELL YEAH!

Sabotage Rock Club: July 25th - Look Mag

Sabotage Rock Club: July 25th - Look Mag | m u s i c - Portugal sounds so cool | Scoop.it

Sexta-feira e as férias que não chegam! Para ajudar a suportar a espera nada como visitar o Sabotage e descontrair. Mais dois concertos dignos de nota. Os Souq são um sexteto rock de Aveiro com um fenomenal álbum de estreia na rua: “At La Brava – Volume Two of Red Desert Saga”. A banda destaca-se, e de que maneira, pela fanfarra drums, brass & bass que aliada à riffalhada rock e a uma voz portentosa lhes confere uma sonoridade exclusiva no panorama da atual música moderna portuguesa. Recentemente foram selecionados para a Welcome Party do festival Reverence Valada e para abrir para os norte-americanos The Bellrays.
