More about Casey Neill:
“These are songs with stories well told” – Steve Earle
Casey Neill is a songwriter from Portland, Oregon performing high energy indie folk, infused with haunting melodies and weather beaten narratives. Neill tours throughout the USA, Japan, and Europe, performing at venues such as Town Hall in New York, San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, and the Newport Folk Festival. The latest Casey Neill & The Norway Rats album ‘Subterrene‘ is a major leap forward that No Depression calls “a milestone in Neill and company’s trajectory thus far” while Rolling Stone says “(Neill’s) songs mask their complexities beneath a simple, singalong-worthy surface… these swimming waters have serious depth.”
In 1997 Casey Neill began a run of three songwriter albums for acoustic label Appleseed Recordings as well as contributing tracks to their Pete Seeger Tribute along with Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg, and Bonnie Raitt. A compilation of his material entitled ‘Memory Against Forgetting’ was released by Indigo Girl Amy Ray’s Daemon imprint in 2005. Following a few years treading the boards in New York City, Casey moved back to the thriving music community in Portland. In 2007, a far more electric record ’Brooklyn Bridge‘ was released and The Norway Rats were formed to support it with members of The Decemberists and Eels. Casey Neill & The Norway Rats recorded three records across the 2010’s – the dreamy Americana of ‘Goodbye to the Rank and File‘, the art rock collection ‘All You Pretty Vandals‘ and the electro-folk and pop explorations of ‘Subterrene‘.
