Paul Casey was born in the San Francisco Bay Area. I fell in love with singing, when I heard the Beatles and Moody Blues. As I got older Billy Idol and U2, got me really hooked, and started writing lyrics in 9th grade.
It just became a great outlet for whatever I was going through. Became the lead singer in a band called “ The Mother “ We played all over the bay area, then the bass player and drummer gas-ed out and left the band. I moved to San Francisco and joined a band named “Systems Collapse “ We were very close to a record deal, but another by the name of “ Helmet “ got the deal. I tried to start original bands in the Bay Area, Arizona, but chemistry was just not there. I moved to Eugene Oregon, and met some studio musicians to record , The Masses, Begin, Dream as One, You re Alright, Call to Peace. I have met many musicians on you tube with open tracks with no vocals. It has given me the freedom to put vocals on 250 songs from range from Metal, Rock, Hard rock, Blues, Jazz, Techno Dance, and Rock power ballads. My passion is to keep giving new original songs to the World to enjoy. Find those live players and hit the stage, and give the World a great, inspiring experience they will never forget.
