The One Man Show

The month of October marks a landmark. I will be showcasing one true artist that I believe and know personally. The one and only Casey Stratton is a one man show. The 27 year old from Grand Rapids, Michigan lists Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan as amongst his greatest influences. Also being musically influenced by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush, Casey's music reflect those inspirations equally.

Casey's debut album from Sony is entitled "Standing At The Edge" - showcases his clear contro-alto, serene voice and beautiful harmonies set to haunting, juxtaposing piano arpeggios. Co-produced with the legendary Pat Leonard, Casey's album is not only polished, professional and deeply personal, he manages to set a benchmark for quality debuts.

But Casey is no stranger to the music industry. Having just graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy at the tender age of 18, Casey took the bus to Los Angeles and from there recorded and producing his own EP, "Driving To The Moon" and subsequently his independently released "The Giver and The Grave Digger".

Not only is October a celebration of the month of Casey's birthday, but also he is taking his one man show on tour. Playing in selected dates in Michigan, Casey is breathtakingly showing off his consummate piano skills and unique vocals to only those who utterly appreciate his work.

Please stand and give a hand to the talented, one and only, Casey Stratton.
