CASEY BARNES BAND
Australians got to know Casey’s story when he was a top 12 finalist in the final series of Australian Idol. But Casey already had a career well before appearing on the show, having released three albums, played alongside Bryan Adams (for A Day On The Green), Eskimo Joe and Vanessa Amorosi and had a number one hit in Europe, singing Marco Demark’s remake of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer.
Casey has gone from strength to strength with a special guest appearance as support to US superstar Mariah Carey for A Day on the Green. He also has performed on premier music events such as Broadbeach Country Music Festival and Urban Country Music Festival.
In June 2016, Casey travelled to California to perform at major US music festival Country Summer. An annual event, held at Santa Rosa, it featured the likes of Lady Antebullum, Craig Morgan and The Band Perry. Casey also made his US television debut performing on CBS morning show ‘Good Day Sacramento’. He finished off the year with an appearance on the Seven Network’s ‘The Daily Edition’.
Casey has experienced an exciting start to 2017 touring the country on his ‘Live As One’ tour which saw him perform four shows at Tamworth Country Music Festival and shows with US Country artist McKenna Faith. This year will see Casey Barnes continue to release further singles from ‘Live As One’
