Biography

A professional singer/songwriter based out of Nashville TN, Casey Kessel has enjoyed a great deal of recent success both as a writer and artist. Having co-written her first top 20 song "Finding A Good Man" for up and coming Big Machine artist Danielle Peck, and scoring two songs on Mercury recording artist Julie Roberts current album, Casey solidified herself as one of Nashville's top up and coming female songwriters.

However with the independent release of her new full length solo album "Ripple In the Water" Casey is demonstrating that not only can she write the songs, but that she sing them as well.

More “alt country” than some of her main stream contemporaries Casey enlisted the grammy nominated Jim Rielly and former Maverick Robert Reynolds as producers. Using some of the best session players in Nashville, Casey was able to create an album that is both sincere and heartfelt, as well as fun and light hearted.

Lyrics

My Father

Written By: Casey Kessel

Before my father was my father
He was a brother and a son
Was a lover to my mother
Was a solider with a gun

Before my father was my father
He wasn't looking to be saved
No he never spoke to no God
Didn't fold his hands to pray
Before My Father, was my father

He was just a man
Chasing blindly
After Life, Waiting for his chance
To be a hero
Little did he know

Before my father was my father
He had no answers he could tell
So he hitched across this country
Did some searching for himself
Before My Father, was my father

He was just a man
Chasing blindly
After life, Waiting for his chance
To be a hero
Little did he know

Before my father was my father
He stood in the waiting room
Drinking coffee smoking cigarettes
Scared cause I was coming soon

Before my father was my father
He made a promise to me
That I would always be loved
Cause he would always love me
Cause he was my father, my father
