Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks / Bio

GENE CASEY is a singer-songwriter-guitarist whose songs and performances have been featured on the soundtrack to TV shows and feature films. A mainstay on the east coast roots rock circuit since the late 1980s, Gene and his band the LONE SHARKS have “played – and torn up -- virtually every roadhouse, bar, and honky-tonk from Manhattan to Montauk” (Bop! Magazine) and produced five CDs of original songs that reflect his deep immersion in the classic rockabilly, C&W and R&B tradition.

Gene’s songs and performances have been used on the soundtrack to episodes of the FX Network’s acclaimed TV show “JUSTIFIED" in 2010 and 2012 and in a feaure film "The Tall Man" starring Jessica Biel in 2012.

Re. 2008's CD, “What Happened” Baylis Greene in The East Hampton STAR’s wrote: “Mr. Casey has explored the more rewarding corners of country and western music and its progeny and come up with a disc that remains thematically of a piece — love, sex, and what the hell goes wrong — while he and the boys change speeds with practically each song in turn.”
