CROSS-POLLINATION XXX - TUES NOV 23RD - 7:30-10 PM
KYLE ERVIN
CASEY SHEA

Hailing from Kansas, a state better known for its export of wheat than its export of art, Ervin has quickly acclimated himself to the big-city music scene. His soulful tenor voice stands out in the current singer-songwriter scene, with hints of Adam Duritz, Ryan Adams and Stevie Wonder. Delivered with a charming, straightforward stage presence, Ervin's songs are fresh with an easy bounce; filled with hooks that linger long in one's head after a single listening.

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.
