Casey James Prestwood, best known for his groundbreaking work as lead guitarist and driving force behind emo/indie cornerstone group Hot Rod Circuit, will soon be releasing his debut solo album, The Hurtin’ Kind. Not one to stick to current trends, Casey’s debut showcases his life-long passion of honky tonk from the good ol’ days of country rock n roll in the 1970s, evoking memories of Gram Parsons and Merle Haggard. Although a seasoned pedal steel player himself, he brought Prestwood brought some of the finest musicians in the studio to help round out his vision. Featuring an eclectic cast ranging from Neil Flanz, pedal steel player for Parsons himself, to Arabella Harrison, front woman of emo pioneers Jejune, Prestwood’s band helps each song sound top notch. - Hi Dive

After playing with alt-country outfit Drag the River and the New Haven-based rockers Hot Rod Circuit, Casey James Prestwood went out on his own and released his honky-tonk-flavored solo debut, The Hurtin' Kind, in 2006. As with his debut, Falling Apart the Seams shows Prestwood's affinity for '60s and '70s country and honky-tonk, especially Gram Parsons and Merle Haggard. On Seams, Prestwood has assembled a first-rate group of players, including Band of Annuals' pedal-steel player Brent Dreiling and singer Jeremi Hanson, who help beef up a fine set of Prestwood originals and Merle Haggard's "The Longer You Wait," Doug Sahm's "Cowboy Peyton Place" and Charlie Monroe's "Down in the Willow Garden." The album may be titled Falling Apart at the Seams, but it's clear that Prestwood totally has his shit together. - The Westword


" Casey and Brent have been rocking their Gram Parsons' inspired motorcycle jackets for a hot minute, so we're stoked (we hope they are too!!) for the ladies to be donning some rhinestones on their bad ass selves. Please be sure to check out their music... they are super groovy and cool and we're happy to be a fan of these clients and friends..." - Lauren Wray

Bio

If the late night scene on Broadway Street in Nashville, Tennessee could talk, it would sing you a Casey James Prestwood tune. Drenched in the honest twang that made Gram Parsons and Hank Williams household names, the classic crooner's carefree vocals and careful guitar playing feel more like country than a worn-in pair of cowboy boots.

Prestwood's latest album "Falling Apart At The Seams" was produced by Grammy Award Winner John Macy, and the collaboration between the two has paid off: the songs are beautifully arranged and masterfully delivered, transporting the listener immediately to the glory days of Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium. As "classic" as this record may seem, make no mistake--the songs are as timeless as the love and loss that Prestwood sings of, each pulling at your heartstrings more than the next.

No stranger to the alt. country scene, Prestwood has played as a sideman with such acclaimed bands as Drag The River, Rocky Votilato, and Hot Rod Circuit. He ventured off into his own territory with his record “ The Hurtin Kind,” released in 2006. On his latest record, Prestwood gets a hand from legendary country players such as Jaydee Manness, Neil Flans, and Hank Singer to give the record its polished country feel. Prestwood's backing band, The Burning Angels, have included greats such as Chuck Lettes (Patsy Declined), Brent Dreiling, (Band of Annuals), Jeremi Hanson (Band of Annuals), Kate Prestwood (The Don’t Tells), Kevin Finn (The Dirty Union), Chris Loftus (Psychobilly Cadillac), Jeff Rady (Mama’s Cookin), Stork Caprara (The Mighty High) and Adam Stern (Adam Stern Trio).

From the singer's hit song "Whiskey, Peroxide & Smoke," Prestwood tells us, "Temptation is a vice we all have. And regret is the thing that makes temptation hard." The only regret to be had after listening to Prestwood is to wish you'd heard his stuff sooner. Catch him and the band live and experience for yourself what all the buzz is about.
