Gold Coast, QLD
Casey’s music has made an impact around the world. He’s had hits in Europe, written songs in America, appeared in a top-rating TV show in Australia, and played alongside many international stars including both Mariah Carey and Bryan Adams.

Casey started his singing career in his home state of Tasmania, before relocating to the Gold Coast, which he now calls home. Casey’s songs are honest and heartfelt. The emotions are genuine. This was evident on his previous album ‘Jet Trails’, released September 2012 and spawned a string of well received singles. This album was Casey’s first association with Aussie hit-maker Rick Price (Not a Day Goes By, Heaven Knows) after a chance meeting in Nashville led the pair to become life long friends and songwriting partners.

Casey started his singing career in his home state of Tasmania, before relocating to the Gold Coast, which he now calls home.

Casey’s songs are honest and heartfelt. The emotions are genuine. The Jet Trails single, Michelle, documents how Casey’s life changed when he met his wife. Casey wrote the song in Nashville with Aussie hit-maker Rick Price (Not A Day Goes By, Heaven Knows), who later posted this message: “Man, his eyes lit up when he talked about her and his little daughter – great to see a guy loving on his family like that.”

Family and community are important to Casey. At the start of 2011, his defiant Never Break You became an anthem after the devastating Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi. The song soared to number one on the AIR charts, Top 10 on iTunes, and number six on ARIA’s Australian Artists Singles chart, with Casey donating all proceeds to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.

Australians got to know Casey’s story when he was a top 12 finalist in the final series of Australian Idol in 2009. But Casey already had a career before appearing on the show, having released three albums, played alongside Bryan Adams, and had a number one hit on the European dance charts, singing Marco Demark’s remake of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer.
