The Company Stores has just dropped their fabulous new video for the track titled ‘Move On’. And such a vivid depiction this video is. I simply love this song from that first line ‘…another day is coming’. Casey Litz’ voice is filled with such hope and promises that how could one not be enthralled by this song. The hook-heavy chorus is so uplifting that you really wonder what it was like to be in the room when this song was written.
Filled with emotional highs and empathetic harmonies laid over an almost orchestral level of musicianship one can wonder how this song is not a classic yet, even though it is brand new. This is a song you will tell your friends about.
‘Move On’ was produced by Rob Mercurio, member of the funk band Galactic. The track sees the band moving from their Appalachian roots to a more melodic rock sound with lush layers that provide a nice slow burn.
The Company Stores is a modern folk-rock band. Led by the beautiful Casey Litz’s powerful vocals, the band takes the listener on a musical journey with each song, pulling inspiration from folk, progressive rock, electronic, and many other musical genres. The band began as a duo in late 2012 and quickly gained momentum picking up new members and playing for bigger audiences.
The band is set to release their first single for their third full-length album in 2020, working with record producer Robert Mercurio (The Revivalists, Trombone Shorty), bass player for New Orleans funk legends, Galactic. Their newest project is proceeded by the 2017 release Little Lights, recorded at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, and their local debut Rollin’ In in 2014.
The band’s name refers to the store in Appalachian coal towns during the 19th and 20th century, where workers were paid in coal money or “scrip”, leaving them with no exit from the mines.
