Born and raised in Chesterfield before moving to London to pursue a career in music, it failing and then moving back into a van (“It was all I could really do!” he jokes), he’s fast becoming one of the most talked-about and promising indie names in guitar music. Pulling in crowds with his Springsteen-esk songs about misfortunes in love and rich odes to wanderlust, he’s managed to build a captive live audience that know songs months before they are actually released, as is the intensity of his fans.
Casey’s career took a huge turn in 2021 with his social media going viral after creating songs about ‘silly people on the internet’ reaching over 5 million followers with nearly 1 in 100 people in Australia following him on social media. His music online is only part of his huge catalogue with his debut album in the works.
