Black coffee honest. Electricity in his voice. Old Soul Music.
Casey Lee Hurt is the only son to a rebellious, God fearing ex-preacher. At an early age he was handed a pawn shop guitar and an old hymnal and they haven’t left his side since. He’s black coffee honest from the history in his voice to the heart on his sleeve and his music reflects that. Artists like Van Morrison, Ryan Adams and Ray Lamontagne resonate in his soul and have uniquely shaped the sound and story that is Casey Hurt.
Casey spent most of 2010/2011 either on the road touring or in the recording studio. His most recent album Mended Souls debuted in the top 25 on the iTunes singer songwriter charts. Also, Casey’s song “Come To Me” was featured on the CW’s One Tree Hill along side artists like Ray Lamontagne, The Black Keys and The Carey Brothers. Casey has also had music featured on shows like Bar Karma and Current TV.
While on tour last year, Casey created quite the buzz for himself. He played a sold out show at the legendary Hotel Cafe’ with Tyrone Wells. He also sold out shows in Santa Monica and Santa Cruz California as well a Corvallis and Portland Oregon. His music has also been featured on radio stations up and down the west coast like Seattle’s KEXP and Los Angeles’s KCRW.
Casey Lee Hurt on Community: I'm deeply rooting in the Ashland music community after spending a year there preforming the show The Unfortunates in the Thomas Theater. I'd love to continue to connect with that community. Because of that show I've bridged a gap between a singer songwriter crowd and a hip-hop crowd helping show the similarities of storytelling through music.
