"Nashville Scene City Picks"

Best Independent Female Country Artist Worth Signing: Casey Kessel

Think about all the gauzily simplistic nostalgia currently clogging country radio. Then think about this: “Mama won first prize for her cherry pie that summer I met you / The air was sticky on the banks of the ‘Sippi, smack dab in the middle of June.” Say it out loud. Note the internal rhymes and sly evocation of budding sensuality and momentary innocence (hint: it could have been apple pie, but it ain’t). Or better yet, cue up the title cut of Casey Kessel’s Ripple in the Water, from whence those lines derive. Florida native Kessel passed on a development deal with RCA a few years ago but has since found success as a songwriter—she co-wrote Danielle Peck’s current hit “Findin’ a Good Man” and two cuts on Julie Roberts’ Men & Mascara. Kessel has an instantly appealing voice of her own, and Ripple (co-produced by ex-Maverick Robert Reynolds) suggests what country radio could sound like with a little less computer-generated special effects and a little more cleverness and humanity. Note to execs: she’s pretty, too. —CHRIS NEAL (The Nashville Scene)

"Future Stars"

The millions who have heard “Findin’ a Good Man,” the irresistible hit she co-wrote for Danielle Peck, will already be prepared for the hallmarks of Casey Kessel’s own music: openhearted honesty, wry humor, a playful sense of rhythm, melodic surefootedness and an eye for the kind of details that bring a song out of the abstract and into the here and now. Expect Ripple in the Water, and its creator, to make a few waves.

Bio

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.
