"Casey's stage persona is equal parts James Brown, Elvis Presley, and Bono...but then comes the surprise, etched in cursive on the head of a pin. Listen closely, and the songs are beautiful, heartfelt, and wrenching." – MTV News
Following the release of one self-produced, home-recorded album and the mellow full-band follow-up, Love Is Here To Stay, Shea's third full-length effort, In Your Head, is a deliberately cleaner, harder edged version of what his fans have come to expect: irresistible hooks, airtight melodies, and masterfully crafted, heartfelt lyrics. In Your Head is the result of a year dedicated to honing a cohesive, genuine rock n' roll sound, and the final product is ultimately a mix of classic and modern rock calling to mind The Beatles, Kings of Leon, and Tom Petty. A self-proclaimed explorer of genres, he effortlessly moves through time periods and styles, all the while staying true to his own unique songwriting voice.
Having fronted numerous rock bands in Nashville and Tallahassee, Shea has established himself as a New York staple, both as a solo act and frontman of his five-piece rock outfit. A gifted performer with undeniable charm, he is known for engaging his audience and filling the stage with a charismatic performance that knows no boundaries. He is at once quirky and heart wrenching, and the result is a rare treat that is both musically gratifying and raucously entertaining.
In addition to his city success, Casey has toured around the country and across the pond, opening for much buzzed about fan favorites including Wakey!Wakey!, Tally Hall, and Jukebox the Ghost. His work, both recorded and live, has been reviewed by NME, MTV, CMJ, and The New York Times, and his songs have set the scene in episodes of One Tree Hill, Friends With Benefits, The Gates, and the independent documentary Mr. Rogers & Me. Shea's latest music video, the introspective "Let It Slide," made its debut on Relix.com, online source for the critically acclaimed Relix music magazine.
