Paul Casey is perhaps Ireland’s best kept secret. And it’s a secret thirty years in the making... 

For decades, the self-effacing musician has worked tirelessly at his craft. The studio (rather than social media!) is where he’s at home. The quintessential  musician’s musician, over the years Casey has earnestly composed and arranged, played and recorded, mixed and produced – all the time honing his craft at his Cable Junction home studio.

Paul Casey was born at a moment in Northern Irish life that shaped him unmistakably. His father’s blues records were a huge influence. Paul’s blues sensibility led to an encounter with the legendary Chris Rea. The shy teenager blagged his way backstage to ask for advice from his guitar hero. Rea advised the young novice, who took everything on board. Three years later Casey gave Rea a demo tape. He was impressed, and invited Paul to London. Thus began years of recording and touring together, and a friendship that endures to this day. 

Another strand to Paul’s musical DNA is an uncompromising commitment to no-nonsense studio equipment, along with an enduring pursuit of the new recording  tech that matters. And then, there’s the visuals; he’s a cinema geek. Rented VHS tapes have fashioned his life, and his music. Paul is a videographer, a guitarist,  a songwriter, producer, and singer. Check out his take on In The Day's Before Rock 'N' Roll below...

“A radio hit waiting to happen. Casey is one to watch”



"Genius... you won't hear much better than that anywhere in the world"



“The guitar fills worm their way into your cranium and take up permanent residence, making the track a perfect vehicle on which to marry timeless rhythms with a modern sonic approach... leaves you wanting more.” 



“The highlight of the whole day was the phenomenal set of punchy, up- beat songs from Paul Casey.... Casey was LETHAL. Fresh, rhythmic, melodic and sassy ”
