Biography

Born in Long Island and raised in New Jersey, Free Trade has been accustomed to the tri-state area lifestyle. Amidst the fast paced business ethic, and artistic soul of New York City, comes an artist who feels the need for a new music uprising. Free Trade, started his musical journey early on when his long time friend was diagnosed with cancer. Inspiration struck him and a group of friends to begin recording in basements and playing in local bars. Since then, Free Trade has managed to form a 7 piece hip hop group, perform at large east coast venues (ie. Best Buy Theatre, Knitting Factory, BB King Blues Club & Grill), compete in spoken word competitions, record a few albums, and run his Co-Founded music marketing company Tru Statement Entertainment. His influences range from Curtis Mayfield to Sound Tribe Sector 9 to A Tribe Called Quest. Catch Casey a.k.a. Free Trade on TruStatement.com
