Casey Black / Press

“Nashville singer Casey Black talks about his journey to finding his own voice, his famous father and getting to know Mick Flannery.”

“All of this was delivered via his impressive vocal range, from a low growl to a high blues wail. Both were present in my own standout moment of the gig, the rousing ‘Fire Fire Fire Fire’ from the current album, which was preceded by an arresting therapy anecdote – “When I was 21, my therapist asked me why everyone was allowed to be angry except me.” As introductions go, I don’t think I’ve heard better.”

“Nashville-native singer/songwriter, Casey Black is set to support Irish artist Mick Flannery on a little Irish tour this week, as well as playing a few of his own headline shows around the country. We caught up with Casey to chat about his music career which was ignited quite early on in his life…”

“Casey's songs have teeth to them, with enough grit and heart to keep you coming back to them again and again.”

“Casey Black is starting a fire with his deep Springsteen style voice and "local brand of love. WARNING: You'll be singing "Fire Fire Fire Fire" all day long. ”

“Casey Black’s Lay You in the Loam will be one of those heavily rotated records this summer – his a terrific songwriter with a gravely voice...”

“The first single from Loam, “Fire Fire Fire Fire,” fuses an earnest and steely eyed monologue, reminiscent of Steve Earle or The Nightwatchman with an unrelenting pulse that demands your full attention.”

“The song itself [Little Bit Lonely], is a sweet ballad, written as a correspondence between Casey and Jenny N, and the loneliness that comes from distance. The tenderly strummed guitar, and weeping ornamentation create an intimate almost inside look at the songwriter’s mind. It’s one of my favorite songs on Black’s record It Shapes Me As it Goes.”

“Casey's lyrics are direct and dark, and his music is melodious and conversational.”

"One of the most engaging and intelligent songwriters to play live on The Green Room in years."

Michael Carr - 96FM, Cork

“Casey Black has restored my faith in the lost art of damn fine songwriting. I play this album for myself every evening when I get home from work.”
