Casey’s music has made an impact around the world. He’s had hits in Europe, written and recorded in America, appeared in a top-rating TV show in Australia, and played alongside many international stars including Mariah Carey, Lady Antebellum 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 2012 release ‘Jet Trails’, which spawned a string of well-received singles, which he wrote in Nashville with Aussie hit-maker, Rick Price. (Not a Day Goes By, Heaven Knows).
Casey headed back to Nashville in 2016 to record his next album ‘Live as One’ at the famed Sound Emporium Studios. This album was a mixture of fan-favourites plus new songs, including Casey’s previous single, ‘The One You Love’, which was produced by ARIA award winning producer Nick Didia. (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Powderfinger, Kasey Chambers).
The last 3 years have seen many achievements for Casey with shows in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles. He’s performed at festivals around Australia including main stage at one of Queensland’s premier events the ‘Caloundra Music Festival’, Broadbeach Country Music Festival, Urban Country Music Festival and the very popular ‘A Day On The Green’ (with Mariah Carey)

But Casey already had a career well before appearing on the show, having released three albums, played alongside artists like Bryan Adams (for A Day On The Green), and had a number one hit in Europe, singing Marco Demark’s remake of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer.
