This alt-indie pop siren's engaging live energy captures you right between the ears with a voice that moves you to stay and listen. Whether its a quirky tune played on an odd 80's electronic toy autoharp, or the rich layers of melodic guitar,synth & piano weaving through her complex lyrics, her songs always manage to deliver both a classic familiarity and uncharted freshness. With over 25 songwriting awards and nominations, Casey has written and recorded with such luminaries as multi Gold and Platinum Producer Anthony J Resta (Collective Soul, Shawn Mullins, Duran Duran) Grammy winner Will Ackerman, Peter Gabriels' Tony Levin, Bryan Carrigan, Chris Fogel & more. She’s performed at colleges & venues all over the country as well as the following festivals: CMJ, Virgin College Mega Tour, Sundance Film Festival , South Park, London Calling, MMS, MPMF, Head of the Charles Regatta, NACA, COCA, DBMC, Chickfest, Collegefest, Intl. Folk Alliance, NAMM, Common Ground Music Festival (Lansing, Michigan)& DFEST. She is currently in the studio recording a new CD and several videos. Casey is endorsed by Daisy Rock Guitars.
