ABOUT

BIO

"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 spent his youth tuned into classic rock radio. While his friends were headbanging along to the grunge bands of the 90s, Shea found solace in Brian Wilson's, "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times."

The Louisiana native has spent the past decade establishing himself as a New York City staple both as a solo act and as a frontman of his band. His songwriting and performance style is at once quirky and heart wrenching; the result is a rare treat that is both musically gratifying and raucously entertaining. Over the past few years, Shea's persistently toured the U.S. and Europe, released two albums, and a third is on the way.

His work, both recorded and live, has been reviewed by NME, MTV, CMJ, and The New York Times, and his songs have set the scene in episodes of One Tree Hill, Necessary Roughness, MADE, Friends With Benefits, The Gates, the movie Peace Love and Misunderstanding, and the independent documentary Mr. Rogers & Me.

Genuine, hook-filled rock 'n' roll. - The Deli

Simply perfect songcraft. - CMJ

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. - Joel Crane (NME, Q, Mojo)

Hushed and hopeful. - The New York Times

Full of charm, sophistication, and straight up fucking rock and roll. - The Robot Soul

As if John Lennon were still alive today and collaborated with Ryan Adams. - Underrated Magazine

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. - CMJ.com
