Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee,Casey Black followed in the footsteps of his father, Charlie Black, an NSAI Hall of Fame songwriter, and wrote his first song at age thirteen. For the next five years, Casey continued to write and record his own songs in the family basement using any hand-me-down gear he could find from his father.
At eighteen, Casey inked a deal with EMI Music Publishing, making him one of the youngest signed songwriters in Nashville. At EMI, Casey had the opportunity to work with some of Nashville''s greatest writers, and learn the finer aspects of the craft from the masters. Getting paid for it didn''t hurt either. After three years, Casey grew restless. Frustrated with always writing songs for others and the uninspiring Nashville music scene, Casey decided to leave EMI, packed his guitar and headed for Los Angeles to rediscover his own voice and concentrate on his own material.
Upon arriving in L.A. and writing a record''s worth of new songs, Casey started working with engineer/producer, JD Andrew (Will Kimbrough, Guy Clark, Midnite Movies, Giant Drag) from The Record Plant in Hollywood and recorded a four-song demo. When Grammy nominated engineer/producer, Csaba Petocz (John Michael Montgomery, BlackHawk, Stanley Clarke, Metallica, Etta James) came across the demo, he immediately offered to pay for the recording of a full-length record. After a year of hard work, the record titled Vacations, is finally completed and currently available.
When Casey is not immersed in writing new songs or new chapters in his Great American Novel, you can be sure to find him playing in and around Los Angeles at venues such as The Hotel Café, Room 5, The Cat Club, Fais-Do-Do or Club Lengerie. Casey is accompanied by a group of amazing musicians, including drummer Aaron Sterling (Kenna, Abraham Laboriel), keyboardist Kris Pooley (Jane''s Addiction, Kenna), and upright bass players Joe Karnes (Ben Taylor) and Kaveh Rastegar.
Casey''s sound hints of influences from his favorite songwriters such as Patty Griffin, Bruce Sprinsteen, Matthew Ryan and Steve Earle, creating a unique blend of folk, alt-country, and acoustic indie-rock. His brilliant songwriting resonates with his fans through his striking lyrics and distinct, deep, captivating vocals.
Casey Black has the wisdom and talent of an artist twice his age. From his deep Nashville roots to the influence of the West Coast sunshine, Casey''s sound is ever evolving. 2004 is his year. Keep your eyes open, and your ears ready for Casey Black.
