Cas Haley To Support Easy Star All-Stars on UK & Ireland Tour
aaamusic | On 21, Sep 2010
Cas Haley is set to support label mates Easy Star All-Stars on their upcoming UK and Ireland tour that includes a show at the London Scala on 19th October. Cas is certainly no stranger to performing in front of big crowds having made it all the way to the final of 2007’s America’s Got Talent, eventually becoming runner up. After walking away from Simon Cowell’s record deal after one album, Cas found a more comfortable home for himself at Easy Star Records for his second album Connection.
The record was recorded in Texas and then mixed in Los Angeles by Danny Kalb (Ben Harper, Beck). Besides the heavy influence of reggae throughout the record—a hallmark of Cas’s style—you can also hear elements of soul, blues and pop spliced into the DNA of these songs. A stand out moment is a haunting cover of Alicia Keys’ No One along with original songs like the first single Better, Time And Truth, and I’m Free. All are rich with biographical lyrics that give deeper insight into this talented artist’s life, from childhood to the present.
Cas Haley’s album Connection is set for release on 18th October through Easy Star Records.
