“Moving On” by Mikey Wayne

Singer-songwriter Mikey Wayne has a brand new single out titled “Moving On (Echo Mountain Sessions.)” The acoustic rendition of the track has been released alongside an incredible music video.

When talking about the inspiration for releasing the single, Wayne shared, “‘Moving on’ speaks to the temporary pain in the present is worth long-term happiness in the future.”  

The title comes from the name of studio it was recorded in in Asheville, North Carolina. What sets Echo Mountain Studios apart is founder Steve Wilmans built this studio out of a church while preserving as much of it as he could. This is the backdrop of the music video, so it amplifies the intimacy and rawness from both the song and the location.

The Nashville-based artist is originally from California, and his family moved to Alabama when he was younger. He marks this as the start of his music career. From there, he would front rocker bands but is now ready to really harness his signature sound and writing style. He took his influences from the golden coast and the crimson tide and brought them to Music City to pursue a solo career.

Wayne displays the depth of his range and the guitar pairs beautifully alongside him. He takes away all the big production and amplifies this realness that can sometimes get lost in the modern country sound. The richness and vulnerability that is able to shine throughout these Echo Mountain Sessions is breathtaking.

Lyrically, this song grabs with such a strong chorus with Wayne confessing, “”It’s more than a feeling, / It’s a change in the season / When you’re not looking back, / And I’m ok with that / Yeah we’re moving on / We’re moving on.”

“Moving On” has memorable lyrics, strong heart, and overall exudes what makes music in Nashville so iconic. It is obvious that Wayne fits right in in Music City and it will be exciting to see where this journey takes him.
