Today, Neal Casal’s final two solo recordings, “Everything Is Moving” and “Green Moon” have been released across all digital music platforms. An accompanying video for “Everything Is Moving,” directed by Ray Foley and featuring footage of Casal from throughout his career, has also been made available.
Initial work on these two songs began as early as 2013, but Casal—who started his career as a prolific singer/songwriter with 14 albums to his name before becoming the lead guitarist in Ryan Adams & The Cardinals and later the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, as well as his own wildly successful instrumental band, Circles Around the Sun—was never able to complete the recordings prior to his passing in August 2019.
Over the course of 2020, Casal’s close friends and longtime musical collaborators Jeff Hill, Jon Graboff, John Ginty, George Sluppick, Jena Kraus, JP Hesser and Jim Scott came together to add additional parts and complete mixing on the tracks.
In addition to being released on streaming platforms, the two songs will comprise a limited edition 7-inch on Feb. 26 by the Neal Casal Music Foundation in collaboration with Royal Potato Family who released Casal’s final solo album, ‘Sweeten the Distance,’ in 2012. Pre-order for the vinyl edition is available now. All proceeds will benefit the 501c3 non-profit formed in Casal’s name to to provide instruments and lessons to students in New Jersey and New York state schools where he was born and raised, as well as, to make donations to much needed mental health organizations that support musicians in need.
