Company – “Heaven Is Gone”

on September 14, 2011

Heaven Is Gone

Brian Hannon and Kelly Grant, former Catholic grade school friends, both moved to Charleston after graduating from college, eventually reconnected and started playing music together under the name Company. Throughout their journey, the duo experienced a tour with Band of Horses, SXSW, an EP release and the recent release of their debut album, Holy City. Tragically, after the album release, Kelly Grant unexpectedly passed away.

Although “Heaven Is Gone” is about a lost lover, I imagine it has taken on a new meaning for the group. The song, already filled with emotions, sits in your head and comfortably lets you think. Musically, the songwriting is beautiful. Guitar and vocal melodies almost wrap around each other as they follow the same path.
