CASUAL PROJECTS are a 7 piece Hip Hop Soul collective based in Melbourne, Australia. The band is renowned for their high energy shows which blend soulful vocals with a rocking rhythm section and combine the animated antics of several competing MCs.
Setting the bench-mark high, Casual Projects’ first single 'Move Along' earned the band a position as one of the winners of the International Songwriting Competition in the top 15 songs of the pop category ahead of 15,000 others, as well as finalists in the Independant Music Awards. It then went on to be selected by the Australian Broadcasting Comapnay's 'RAGE' as 'Indie Clip of the Week' and was flogged by Fox's Channel V on their 'New Stock' show. The band took their show on the road between April and July doing twenty-six shows including a sell-out performance in their home town Canberra, attended by 600 die-hard fans.
The second single 'Golden Eggs' was also selected as a Rage 'Indie Clip of the Week' and was aired on Channel V's 'New Stock' show. All of this attention helped to earn the band a spot on the Jack Daniels sponsored 'JD set' show airing on commercial radio giant Nova across the country, as well as other community and commercial radio stations across Australia for the months following its release.
Another of the highlight tracks from the album 'Little Things' has also made some big players sit up and take notice. The bands combination of jazzy keys, guitar, bass and drums attracted the attention of global surf brand Billabong who recently snapped up the track and licensed it for 'Surf Pro' DVD with a circulation of 75,000.
