Recently Company of Thieves vocalist Genevieve Schatz and guitarist Marc Walloch were featured on Lightbox Sessions, where they recorded a brief interview and a few acoustic songs in an intimate setting. In addition to stripped down takes on their own tracks "Syrup" and "After Thought" off their fantastic 2011 album Running From a Gamble, the two decided to pull out a bit of Tom Petty in the form of "I Won't Back Down." The result is pretty special, with Genevieve's spot-on vocal squeezing every ounce of passion and conviction possible out of the song's message. I daresay Mr. Petty would be proud. Check out the video below, and if you're a fan, show the band some love by favoriting (let's just say that's a real word) the track on The Hype Machine. While you're at it, read what Genevieve and Marc had to say in a Paste Magazine interview that ran earlier this week.
