The band, Southern Halo, will be working with Nossi students for the second time in our large studios! We are thrilled they are returning. Southern Halo will be capturing the latest single in a music video on campus before gearing up for their big UK tour (March 17-31). They will premier their video at the Gibson headquarters in London for over 30 press outlets. Following that release 6 hours later it will be released in the USA on Rolling Stone Country, CMT and Radio Disney Country.

Illustration and Graphic Design students who are Kappa Pi Eta Tau members will get their original artwork photographed.

We will be sure to share artwork online once the photography is complete!
