Casey Weston is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Naples, Florida and now living in Nashville. Casey began performing her original songs and covers that have inspired her since 2006. In the fall of 2009 Casey ventured into the studio to cut her self-titled EP, “Casey Weston.”
Casey became known outside Florida and Nashville by being selected out of thousands of singers from across the country to go to Los Angeles to compete on NBC’s new smash hit series The Voice! Casey was one of the singers to be picked by Adam Levine to represent his team. Casey was runner up on Adam’s team losing out to Javier Colon who eventually won the competition. She made the top 8 of the contestants. After the show ended on NBC, Casey toured as one of the top eight playing some great cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Hartford, Boston and finishing at the historic Beacon Theater in New York City.
Casey comes from a family athletes but she has always had an interest in music and performing. Casey and her older sister would often put on shows for family and friends singing many different styles of music. Her grandmother liked to take Casey and her sister out to the local night spots to perform at local karaoke events and the reaction of the crowd and the discovery of her innate vocal talent sparked a passion to write songs and perform.
There weren’t a lot of instruments around her house so when Casey was in the 8th grade she asked if she could borrow an acoustic guitar from the music department at the school where her mom worked as a teacher. Casey began by teaching herself how to play it and almost immediately began writing her own songs and performing them for family and friends. After she had practically worn out the loaner guitar, Casey’s parents had to admit that this was no passing fancy and agreed to help pay for guitar lessons. Casey’s parents could not deny the determination and passion she had for writing and playing music.
Six months later, Casey’s parents thought it was time to return the borrowed guitar and buy her one of her own. The only condition they set in return for buying her that first guitar was that she write a song for her parent’s 20th wedding anniversary six months later. That condition helped shape Casey’s preference to write about real life experiences and situations.
Over the ensuing years since Casey began writing, playing and singing, she has performed at many singer-songwriter events both in her home town and in Nashville. More recently, Casey has been performing at large music festivals and events throughout the United States. Some of these performances have led to opportunities to open up for some top singers like James Otto, Craig Morgan, Justin Moore, Tanya Tucker and John Anderson.
Casey recently moved to Nashville to write, perform and work with other talent in the music industry. She is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International. While living in Nashville she has been able to play alongside other aspiring and accomplished singer-songwriters at legendary music venues such as the Commodore Lounge, the Bluebird Café, and the 2009 Rising Star Contest at Puckett’s Grocery in Franklin, Tennessee. While playing her music in Nashville Casey has met many other wonderful musicians who were kind, supportive and helpful, giving advice and sharing their personal stories with her.
Casey has been having the time of her life pursuing her musical journey. She loves performing live…sharing her songs and seeing the way her lyrics and vocal styling’s touch people. She has recently begun learning to play the piano which she feels will help her with composing as well as add another dimension to her performances.
