CROSS-POLLINATION CXCVIII - TUES JUL 1ST - 7:30-10 PM
JEFF JACOBSON
CASEY SHEA

Once upon a time, I worked as a session guitarist, which enabled me to record with legendary producer Phil Ramone and perform on the Tonight Show.

Since entering the NYC singer/songwriter music scene, I've won various awards, including being named one of the "Best Singer/Songwriters of Greenwich Village" for 2005, 2004 and 2003 by Underground Music Online. I also performed at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Showcase in 2004.

Jeff Jacobson released his debut album on Family Records in Fall of 2007.

Casey Shea is an artist operating at the very top of his game and, by comprising the very best elements of Lennon, Davies and Stills, has captured a sound long since past. Although gloriously retrospective, Shea injects his own sublime, colourful use of language which, in turn, propels his songs to a far higher plain. / Joel Crane, NME

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. / MTVNews.com

Sublime combination of wry, insightful lyrics and simply perfect songcraft. / CMJ

Full of charm, sophistication, and straight up fucking rock and roll, listening to Casey Shea might make you want to kick down your cubicle, leave your day job, and start a revolution. / The Robot Soul

In June, 2010, he released "Love Is Here To Stay", the full band follow up to his self recorded solo debut, "Take The Bite." He has since returned to the studio with the band for his third full length album to be released on Family Records in 2011. For more information, visit caseysheamusic.com.
