"Casey Shea"

"Casey Shea demands attention, even at his quietest moments, and you can't help but wonder just what planet, time period, or musical incarnation he arrived from. I could have been guessing all night, but decided to just enjoy the sweet songs coming from mysterious man in front of me." - CMJ.com


"Casey Shea"

"Casey's stage persona is equal parts James Brown, Elvis Presley, and Bono...But then comes the surprise, etched in cursive on the head of a pin. Listen closely, and the songs are beautiful heartfelt, and wrenching." - MTV News


"Casey Shea"

"Casey Shea is an artist operating at the very top of his game and, by comprising the very best elements of Lennon, Davies and Stills, has captured a sound long since past. Although gloriously retrospective, Shea injects his own sublime, colourful use of language which, in turn, propels his songs to a far higher plain." - NME

Bio

Casey Shea spent a handful of years fronting rock bands in Tallahassee and Nashville before setting out for New York City in January of 2004 to focus on a solo career. Melody drives diverse songwriting that is at once quirky and heart wrenching, and the result is a rare treat that is both musically gratifying and raucously entertaining.

The charismatic front man has built a six piece band around his solo material where influences such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Beck and Tom Petty shine through in an original sound with an uncommon familiarity right off the bat.
