Mike Casey is a melody poet. The story-telling songwriter, producer, and sonic alchemist is a multi-talented force whose soul stirring saxophone sound and creative phrasing reaches out with love and embraces your musical desires, one note at a time.
A unique group not only in their approach but in instrumentation, the NYC based Mike Casey Trio is one of the fastest rising young bands in jazz today. The absence of guitar/piano allows the band a rare sound: earthy & accessible, yet mysterious, upbeat – full of surprises – incorporating ingredients of blues, R&B, funk, and world music. On a mission to be a passionate vessel for “jazz” in the 21st century, this trio demands the audiences’ attention with its searing, powerful sound – whether bringing down the house with funky, story based originals or captivating listeners with genre-bending re-imaginations of songs by Soundgarden, Daniel Caesar, Queen, & more.
Garnering over 4.3 million plays worldwide since 2017, Mike has recently collaborated with Emmy winning Apple Juice Kid & been featured by The Huffington Post, NPR, Forbes, Music Ally, on the cover of Spotify’s “State of Jazz”, Evernote, Downbeat, Jazz in Europe, Sirius XM, WBGO, Radio Primavera Sound, & much more.
