No One Above You 16/10/21


Today's animated lyric Video Of The Day is Marcus King's rendition of Neal Casal's 'No One Above You', that becomes the sixth single released from 'Highway Butterfly: The Songs Of Neal Casal', due out on Friday 12th November via The Neal Casal Music Foundation and Royal Potato Family, a 41-song tribute to the late songwriter and musician who passed away in August 2019. Featuring guitarist Eric Krasno and joined by a band that includes keyboardist Adam MacDougall, additional guitarist Jesse Aycock, bassist Dave Schools and drummer Tony Leone, King turns Casal's reflective acoustic ballad from his 2001 album, 'Anytime Tomorrow', into a soaring Southern Soul tour-de-force. It's yet another shining example of Casal's accomplished songwriting that never received its due in his lifetime. All proceeds from sales and streams will benefit the Neal Casal Music Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit formed in 2020, which provides musical instruments and lessons to students in New Jersey and New York state schools where Casal was born and raised, while also donating proceeds to mental health organisations that support musicians, including MusiCares and Backline.
