Paul Casey is an Irish composer, guitarist and singer whose career as a solo artist is gathering a great deal of attention. He's constantly in demand in his home country, performing for enthusiastic fans with a challenging near-daily schedule. The hard work has paid off as his songwriting, guitar playing and distinctive voice are set to cause quite a stir on both sides of the Atlantic. His latest album, Big World, marks a stylistic departure from his previous material—while continuing to explore the themes and pop hooks of his previous albums, Paul’s newest offering exhibits his growing skill as a producer and orchestrator.

In 2010, Casey made major waves in the UK after playing to a total of 55,000 fans on a 23-date tour of the UK and Ireland supporting legendary guitarist and 30-million album-selling Chris Rea. The tour took in venues such as the Symphony Hall in Birmingham and the Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Casey sets himself apart through his exceptional command of slide guitar, strong vocal presence and flair for penning striking tunes with elements of pop, alternative rock and folk. He has been compared to artists ranging from David Gray to Ry Cooder. In truth, however, Paul Casey is an individual who continues to create a distinctive sound by making his own rules when writing and recording.

Casey’s most recent single, “Big World,” off of the album of the same name has been receiving heavy rotation on BBC Radio as well as on a myriad of independent radio stations in the U.K., the former of which prompted an in-studio performance on Gerry Anderson’s show. He has had numerous film and TV placements on MTV, E! and ABC Family; most recently his song “Blow Away The Clouds" was featured on The Spin Crowd. In 2011, Casey performed showcases at both South By Southwest in Austin, Texas and MIDEM in Cannes. His performance at the latter helped earn him a gig writing cues for a few acclaimed American TV shows, including Undercover Boss and Shrimp Wars. In addition his song, “Something’s Gotta Give,” was featured on RTE in Ireland during the broadcast of the qualifying matches for the World Cup.

The young songwriter has a string of critically acclaimed albums under his belt, along the way receiving a 9/10 rating in Ireland’s Hot Press magazine in a review by Jackie Hayden (the man who signed U2 to their first ever record deal). In this tradition, Big World still maintains elements of the acoustic-driven pop that up until now have defined Paul’s sound; however, the addition of orchestral instrumentation and unconventional song structures combined with a heightened emphasis on electric guitar and synthesizer project his music into new genre-defying territories.

Casey has performed on the same bill with artists such as Van Morrison, the John Butler Trio and Damien Rice. A tireless worker, a prolific songwriter and an engaging performer, Paul Casey is a musician for fans of real music.
