Alex Runions Releases “If I Won The Lotto” to Country Radio Nationwide, January 25th

Alex Runions

[Toronto, Canada]  After spending the latter part of 2015 writing with some of North America’s most prolific writers and building a strong industry team, Regina based, Alex Runions is set to release his brand of heartland Country that will be embraced by his current fans and impossible to be ignored by new fans. Recorded at 2-time CCMA Award winning MCC Recording Studio (Calgary), his new single, “If I Won the Lotto” will release to radio on January 25th.

“If I Won the Lotto” (Alex Runions, Steve Mitchell, Nashville) is tracked at radio by Lauren Tutty of Lauren Tutty Promotions. It is a fun, loose and energetic song — something we need to help get us through the winter blues. “It’s nice to dream sometimes of what you would do if you won the lotto,” said Runions, “give some away, go on a trip, buy nice things or invest it. Whatever you think you would do, it’s still great to dream sometimes.” The lottery is something we can all relate to, especially on the heels of the record-setting Powerball draw in the United States earlier this month.

A constant in the Saskatchewan Country Music Association, and highly regarded by SaskMusic, Runions had a big 2015 and was a 3-time SCMA Nominee in the categories of Male Vocalist of the Year, Fan’s Choice Entertainer and Song of the Year – “Little Bit of Sunshine” (A. Runions/W. Mack).

In 2013, Runions won the Big Dog 92.7 FM/SaskMusic ‘Next Big Thing’ competition and received funding through the RAWLCO Radio 10K20 Grant. This opened the door for the creation and production of his current and sophomore CD, SOUTH OF THE CITY, recorded at two-time CCMA Studio of the Year, MCC Recording Studios. SOUTH OF THE CITY released Sept 25, 2015.

Performing across Saskatchewan and throughout Canada for several years, Runions has taken stages at Big Valley Jamboree, Craven Country Jamboree, Dauphin Countryfest and is a regular on the Canadian Country club circuit including Eldorado Country Rock Bar (Regina), Ralph’s (Medicine Hat) and Ranchman’s (Calgary). He’s opened for many prominent country artists including Gord Bamford, Aaron Pritchett and Rodney Atkins while also closing out performances from Dallas Smith, The Road Hammers and Neal McCoy.

His honest voice, tireless dedication and heartfelt approach have made Alex Runions a familiar voice in the Saskatchewan music scene with music industry experts betting the Queen City singer/songwriter will breakout nationally in 2016.

 “If I Won the Lotto” is available on iTunes.  Alex Runions acknowledges Gee Bee Construction (Kipling, SK) for their support and contributions.

Freedom’s Note Rocks Their Debut Single “All We Know” With An Official Video Release Nationwide January 4, 2016

Freedom's Note Video Press Release Image

Canada’s newest band, FREEDOM’S NOTE, are rocking the scene in 2016 with the release of their first single, “All We Know” (CANCON) from their debut full-length album TRIAL BY FIRE (May 2016). The rock and roll quartet originally from Newfoundland and now based in Fort McMurray (AB), consists of Donny Synard (Rhythm Guitar/Lead Vocals), Trevor Lethbridge (Drums), Danny Fewer (Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Mark Stewart (Bass/Backing Vocals).

FREEDOM’S NOTE takes the listener on a sonic journey of varying energy to many places, through several feelings reminiscent of the rich Rock ‘n’ Roll history of legend before them, with subtle nods in homage to several other genres along the way. Drawing on music influences from Guns ‘N Roses, Queen, Foo Fighters, Nickelback, Shania Twain and Pink, to name only a few, the foursome are steadily growing audiences and continue to awe those they perform for.

Recorded at multi award-winning MCC Recording Studios (Calgary) under the direction of Grammy nominated producer, Johnny Gasparic, Trial By Fire is filled with songs of love, passion, fun and excitement. “All We Know” is supported at radio with tracking and promotions by Linda Dawe of Music Solutions (Sutton, ON). The edgy rock vibe and compelling lyrics are also cleverly captured in a captivating, high energy video. Filmed in cooperation with Ben Brignall at Brignall Equipment Solutions (Fort McMurray), and under the direction of multi award-winning videographer and photographer Barrett Klesko (FadeBack Studios United, St. Albert, AB), the inclusion of Rock 97.9 FM CKYX radio announcer Cubb Carson’s immediate voiceover adds an extra dimension and imagination to “All We Know.”

All We Know” is about carving your own path in life, taking the road less travelled and putting everything on the line no matter what consequences or barriers are put in front of you,” states Donny Synard. “Too many people look for the easiest or safest road in life.  “All We Know” is about seizing each moment and believing that anything is possible. BE INSPIRED.”

FREEDOM’S NOTE (formerly Destranged) have opened for various renowned acts including Simple Plan, Finger Eleven, Trooper, Kim Mitchell, Mother Mother, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fame. While steadily growing their fan base, Freedom’s Note will expand their performances and showmanship to audiences during their first national tour in the summer of 2016.

Introducing Freedom’s Note and “ALL WE KNOW”

Intro-Graphic-Iteration-1-At-Radio-December-28

If Rock ‘n’ Roll was fine wine, with Freedom’s Note, what you experience is akin to the finest among them.

Introducing Donny Synard (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Danny Fewer, (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stewart (bass, backing vocals) and Trevor Lethbridge (drums) — a complex bouquet of sound, consisting of a hint of Alberta hard work blended with authentic Atlantic undertones and a splash of bright Spanish colours. Their explosion of timbral flavour once casked in an obviously well-travelled, battle-tested barrel that has traversed the ages with pure heart and soul at its very core.

Freedom’s Note takes you on a sonic journey of varying energy to many places, through several feelings reminiscent of the rich Rock ‘n’ Roll history of legend before them, with subtle nods in homage to several other genres along the way.

Drawing on music influences from Guns ‘N Roses, Queen, Foo Fighters, Nickelback, Shania Twain and Pink, to name only a few, the foursome steadily grew audiences under the name Destranged and continued to awe those they performed for, with cover songs and top charting hits. In 2012, the integration of original written material was incorporated into their live shows garnering even more massive appeal and success, with the boys from Newfoundland performing in wider Alberta venues and opening for various renowned acts including Simple Plan, Finger Eleven, Trooper, Kim Mitchell, Mother Mother, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fame.

Their edgy pop/rock vibe and compelling lyrics contributed to the release of a full album of original material launching Destranged from live band status to recording artists in their own right. Realizing a new band name was in order, they unanimously selected the most requested song from that album, and, Freedom’s Note took flight.

Drawing on personal experiences and creating melodies followed closely behind by lyrics, Freedom’s Note debut full-length album Trial By Fire is filled with songs of love, passion, fun and excitement. Recorded at multi award-winning studio, MCC Recording Studios (Calgary) under the direction of Grammy nominated producer, Johnny Gasparic, Freedom’s Note will launch “All We Know, the first single release to radio nationwide (December 28th, 2015) with full video support (January 4th, 2016).

“All We Know” is about carving your own path in life, taking the road less travelled and putting everything on the line no matter what consequences or barriers are put in front of you,” states Donny Synard. “Too many people look for the easiest or safest road in life.  “All We Know” is about seizing each moment and believing that anything is possible. BE INSPIRED!”

Freedom’s Note will expand their performances and showmanship to audiences during their first national tour in the summer of 2016.
