WYNN WALENT
CASEY SHEA

Known for his passionate performances, Wynn Walent’s music exudes a quiet confidence and a simple sincerity. Wynn's songs are melodic and heartfelt and he delivers them with an urgency and purity that is captivating and endearing. Fueled by an early love of timeless acts such as Paul Simon and the Beatles, Wynn was always singing songs, and began playing clubs and coffee shops throughout his hometown of Richmond, Virginia at the age of 14. 2004 saw a move to NYC, where he quickly planted roots at prominent Brooklyn and Lower East Side venues such as Galagpagos Art Space, The Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall and Pianos. Here, he has developed a local fanbase who enjoy his brand of melodic and sincere songwriting.

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.
