“As an artist, he reveals many sides to his personality. As a listener, this is so refreshing. It’s honest. I don’t get the sense that he’s trying to play a part, or program a song based on what is hot right now.” – Skope Magazine
Singer, songwriter and producer Casely releases his new single, “Locomotive,” off the heels of his highly acclaimed album, The Mutt – A Palindromic Album and music video for “Time Flies“ distributed by Tuff Gong International. In this electric bass driven bop, Casely laments his regret over the realization that he’s let the love of his life go, and has lost her to another man no less.
In “Locomotive”, Casely relies on the self-produced backbeat featuring electric and bass guitars to support the plea to his lover. He’s “F***ed Up, and he knows it”, and he doesn’t mind letting the world know. Stay tuned for the upcoming “Locomotive” music video later this month and tune into his new vlog series “The Calm After the Storm” on YouTube.
Casely is Miami-born and the son of Trinidadian and Panamanian parents and has been featured by CNN, MTV, BET and Seventeen Magazine. Previously signed by Epic Records under Sony Music’s umbrella and Ultra Records, he’s recognized for his suave vocals, unique production and collaborations with Pitbull, Flo Rida and Lil Jon.
As a multi-instrumentalist, his charming and effortless production and style of singing and songwriting are influenced by varied artists ranging from Prince and Michael Jackson, to Death Cab for Cutie and John Mayer.
Casely attended Boston’s world-famous Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship as a classically trained pianist. His national and international live performances include Miami’s Calle Ocho concerts, The Barbados Music Festival and a European concert tour. Check out “Sweat” featuring Lil Jon and Machel Montano and “Emotional” with Flo Rida.
“I think now more than ever, people are scared to be creative and different. But it’s the people who step outside the box who are going to win.” – Casely
