Casey Holford

CASEY HOLFORD was raised on a diet of folk music and comic books in Massachusetts. He started playing piano at 12, picked up his mother's guitar for coffeehouse and DIY shows at 14, and was performing regularly in the Boston-Providence songwriter circuit by 18. Now, living in Brooklyn at age twenty-seven, he has recorded four self-released solo albums, an EP, and a recent 7 inch on RiYL records. Along the way Casey's managed to tour on the east and west coasts multiple times as well as in Europe, sharing bills with like-minded songwriters such as Erin Mckeown, Diane Cluck, Regina Spektor, Peter Mulvey and Matt the Electrician. He currently moonlights in the bands Urban Barnyard, Dream Bitches, Daouets, and Art Sorority for Girls, playing bass, electric, 12 string, and baritone guitars. Casey is also a prolific producer, helping to document his community by working on projects with fellow bands and songwriters, most recently folk punk pop riot Cheese on Bread and visionary songweaver Dave Deporis. New York's East Village arts rag Boog City called Casey "the missing link between lesbian folk, DC punk, 80's synth-pop, and classic rock."
