Irish songwriter, guitarist and singer Paul Casey is being talked of among Ireland’s new music followers as 'the new cool'. His songwriting, guitar playing and distinctive voice are set to cause quite a stir both sides of the Atlantic with the release of his latest CD Scrapbook. Born in County Derry, Northern Ireland, Casey displays an exceptional command of slide guitar and a unique flair for penning striking tunes. He has been compared to artists from David Gray to Damien Rice, Dave Matthews to Ben Harper, Gomez to Ryan Adams. In truth, however, Paul Casey is an individual who makes up his own rules and carves his own niche when song-writing and recording. Casey has an extensive library of stunning tracks that switch effortlessly from lavish string arrangements to beautifully crafted acoustic songs.

He writes perfect pop songs and also unravels modern guitar styles with upbeat grooves and samples, while sometimes straying into rootsy themes and beats. Whether fusing infectious riffs with intricate Irish rhythms or drawing on musical snapshots of legendary guitarists, Casey has continued to create a unique and distinctive sound. Add his foot-tapping riffs and distinctive voice to the mix and you’ve got a remarkable and timeless collection. Casey has played to 55,000 people on an epic 25-date tour of the UK and Ireland as special guest of legendary guitarist and 30-million album-selling Chris Rea. The relationship between Chris Rea and Paul Casey is one of mutual respect and a love of music.

Rea took the apprentice under his wing some years ago after hearing a demo tape. Their relationship and friendship has endured and today, credits for the song ‘Stay’ are shared between the young musician and his mentor. At every venue, Casey’s performance – and charm – had the capacity crowd singing and cheering for more within minutes. The tour took in venues such as the Symphony Hall in Birmingham and the Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Paul’s performance in Birmingham was later released in the acclaimed DVD ‘Paul Casey – Live at Symphony Hall’. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
