We are happy to feature THREE Gene Casey & the Lone Sharks CD s at CD Baby -- 2008's "What Happened" ; 2009's "Rhythm & Twang"; "2012's "Untrained".
Mainstays on the east coast roots rock circuit since the late 1980s, singer, songwriter & guitarist GENE CASEY and the LONE SHARKS have “played – and torn up -- virtually every roadhouse, bar, and honky-tonk from Manhattan to Montauk” (Bop! Magazine) and produced five CDs of original songs that reflect a deep understanding of the classic rockabilly, C&W and R&B tradition.
TWO original Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks songs were featured in the first season of FX Network TV Show "JUSTIFIED." Both are available on the TWO CDs here at CDBaby. The 2012 feature film, "The Tall Man", starring Jessica Biel, used two of Gene's songs ("Who's Sharing the Moon" from What Happened and "It's a Free Country" from Rhythm & Twang).
2012's "Untrained" features a holiday track, "Christmas Lights", destined to be a classic.
Reviewing 2008’s “What Happened” Baylis Greene in The East Hampton STAR wrote: “Mr. Casey has explored the more rewarding corners of country and western music and its progeny and come up with a disc that remains thematically of a piece — love, sex, and what the hell goes wrong — while he and the boys change speeds with practically each song in turn.”
"The Lone Sharks' new CD is full of songs about lyin’, dancin’, rainin’, cheatin’, dyin’, lovin’ ‘n’ leavin’, and when Gene lets his deep baritone loose, you’d swear the Man in Black himself just walked in the joint….bottom line: this album is as American as you can get. "

“A rockabilly classic. Clear and true, and has the feel of those great AM analog radio hits that I used to turn up loud when I was cruisin' in my '66 Fairlane "
