Casey Weston is a singer-songwriter living in Naples, Florida. Casey began performing her original songs and covers that have inspired her in 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 becoming one of the final 16 contestants on NBC’s new smash hit series The Voice!
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 like 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 full of athletes 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 more recently in Nashville. Casey has added to her schedule by playing more routinely at a variety of venues throughout Southwest Florida where she likes to share a variety of covers and her original songs. More recently, Casey has been performing at large music festivals throughout Florida. Some of these performances have led to opportunities to open up for some top 40 acts like James Otto, Craig Morgan and Justin Moore.
Casey travels to Nashville to perform and work with other talent in the music industry as often as possible. She is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International. During these trips to 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.
Casey hopes that the national spotlight provided by Casey’s performances on NBC’s The Voice will open other opportunities to continue to pursue her dream to share her music on the stage of incredible venues like The Fillmore, The Troubador The Grand Ole Opry and other legendary venues around the world.
