Grade school buddies Brian Hannon and Kelly Grant wind up living in Charleston, SC following their college years. They reconnect and start playing music together. They play some shows; get introduced to Band of Horses who in turn take them out on tour and to SXSW; while in Austin they meet Matthew Johnson from Fat Possum who agrees to put out their first EP; they do some more touring, including a stint with Matt Pond PA, and eventually sign with us as Exit Stencil.
Since then Company has released two full length LPs, lo-fi Holy City and studio recorded Dear America,. Part My Morning Jacket, part Shins, with a bit of Nick Drake thrown in, Company delivers intimate acoustic songs and arena-sized numbers, with terrific melodies, giant hooks and insightful lyrics.
