Biography

Casee Wilson is a local singer-songwriter based in York. She has been writing for five years and is currently honing her skills at Access to Music. She is influenced by a wide range of music, from 80's pop, synth pop and electronica through to adult contemporary artists like Tori Amos and Florence and the Machine and couldn't tell you a single genre of music that has influenced her the most (her parents dragged her up kicking and screaming to a soundtrack of The Who, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Kate Bush and Dire Straits). As a result, much of what she writes is eclectic in style and she dreams of inventing a new genre one day.

Casee is a self taught vocalist and pianist, and in 2010 released her first album, Beggars and Blues, on her independent label Tiny Cat Records. She is currently hard at work on an electronica EP under the name Blue Electric Angel, and recently filmed the video to the first track, Bellytrance, around York with several bellydancers. She has been played on BBC York's breakfast show, and recently guested on The Fox's Den show on Vixen 101 FM. In the past she has had a song selected for the soundtrack of short film ("Far Out") which went on to be shown at the Vancouver Film Festival. She has to date successfully completed February Album Writing Month 3 years running (writing 14 songs in 28 days) writing about topics as diverse as string, kittens and zombies. She can be found playing live around York and the surrounding areas and when she is not gigging or writing she enjoys aikido and chocolate.

Lyrics

Just Another Love Song

Written By: Casee Wilson

I know you've heard it all before,
the tired cliches and the overused chords
Well this is just another love song for the cynical
And sick at heart

There will always be a girl like you and a fool like me
There will always be a girl like you and a fool like me

This is just another
Sorry tale of all the things I'd do for you
A song of self esteem all
Wrapped up in a box, tied with a bitter bow

There will always be a girl like you and a fool like me
There will always be a girl like you and a fool like me

This is just another love song for the cynical

A Moment of Silence (Ask Me Remix)

Written By: Casee Wilson, Gemma Robinson-Wilson

Ask me a question
I'll tell you no lies
Prompt me to tell you what's locked up inside
Ask me a question
Just knock down this wall
Make me lay myself open, I'll tell you it all

A moment of silence

Ask me a question
Shine a light in my eyes
Force me to confess now to all that I hide
Ask me a question
And I'll let you in
I'll reveal all my fears and my doubts and my sins

A moment of silence

Probe me with your words,
Interrogate me, please, interrogate me
Break down my defences and uncover the key
Probe me with your words
Interrogate me, please, interrogate me,
break my defences, uncover the key

A moment of silence

Fade to Grey

Written By: Casee Wilson

Too late, I watch the bus leaving
There's so much left unsaid
Screw fate, I don't need this feeling
These thoughts all torn up in my head
I know I promised forever
When I gave you my heart
Too slow, we couldn't find heaven
And now we're both falling apart

So the colours fade, fade to grey
See the past unmade, fade to grey
So the colours fade, fade to grey
See the past unmade, fade to grey

All gone, this desolate wasteland
Makes a fool out of me
No songs, no tear-stained confessions
Can change the way this has to be
I know I promised forever
Then I took back my heart
Too slow, no sign of things changing
So now we're both falling apart

So the colours fade, fade to grey
See the past unmade, fade to grey
So the colours fade, fade to grey
See the past unmade, fade to grey
So the colours fade, fade to grey
See the past unmade, fade to grey

Feed Your Disease

Written By: Casee Wilson

See the shadows coil
Twisted serpentine
Let me take your fear
Turn it into wine
Let me close your eyes
Touch your burning skin
Tangled up inside
Won't you let me in

I will feed your disease
Bring your world to its knees

Take a sip of sin
From the poisoned cup
Let the fever in
Let it burn you up
All the words unsaid
Let them strip you bare
When you look for me
I'll be everywhere

I will feed your disease
Bring your world to its knees

I will feed your disease
Bring your world to its knees
I will feed your disease
Bring your world to its knees
