Casey MQ is an artist, composer, and producer from Toronto, now based in Los Angeles. Growing up, Casey’s adoration for pop music merged with his training as a classical pianist. As he aged Casey began to work more closely with electronic music. His inspirations widened and he explored the intersection of classic and contemporary sounds. His writing and production styles uniquely reflect that - marriage of the ultra modern and the timeless.
Casey has collaborated with a range of important artists, including oklou, Pink Pantheress, Eartheater, Flume, Carly Rae Jepsen, Dorian Electra, Shygirl, Empress Of, Girlpool and more. His ability to help artists hone their individual voices, and express them in a way that reflects the moment, is exceptional.
Casey has also scored numerous feature films that have premiered at TIFF, SXSW, Sundance and other major film festivals.
During the pandemic, Casey co-founded Club Quarantine, a queer virtual club that has hosted artists such as Charli XCX, Tinashe, Pabllo Vittar, Lady Gaga and others.
