With My Companion is our first introduction to showalter’s music, but I’m sure we’ll be checking out more in the near future! It’s a slow and stripped-down folk tune with a modern folk sensibility, also mixing in elements of the singer-songwriter genre. A gorgeous fingerpicked acoustic guitar melody is played throughout the track, as some sparse backing effects also play occasionally. showalter’s vocals are soft yet soulful, suiting the style of track well. The backing vocals are also pretty stunning – find out for yourselves below!
