Rising newcomer Casey Lowry is having quite the moment. The unmistakably British singer-songwriter follows the rapid success of debut EP ‘Beach Blue’ with ‘Roam’ – his first release of 2019.
Having spent 2018 developing his passion for songwriting and perfecting his signature sound, ‘Roam’ is the culmination of who Casey is as both an artist and a self-expressive songwriter. Known for his unfiltered lyrics, ‘Roam’ is remarkably raw, uplifting and beautifully melodic.
The track demonstrates the hotly-tipped newcomer’s continued ability to craft uplifting and infectious pop with a sincerity beyond his years. The multi-instrumentalist has a natural ability to craft sunshine soaked earworms that build to a crescendo chorus, with ‘Roam’ being no exception.
On ‘Roam’, Casey explains; “Roam is a song about freedom. Everyone experiences that differently, but for me, it’s being sat on a random beach somewhere in the world with a beer in my hand. I wrote this song to encourage others to be bold enough to take the steps they need to in order to find their own freedom.”
Music has always been in Casey’s DNA but it wasn’t until he reached the age of 14 that he wrote his first song, Trampoline. He tells you this almost casually – about a song that, on its release in 2017, was playlisted at Radio 1, reached No 2 on Spotify’s UK Viral 50 chart and has racked up more than 500,000 streams. His debut EP, which included ‘Me & You’ and ‘Blank Face’ garnered attention from the likes of Wonderland, Dork, and Clash, adding to his growing accolade of praise. Fast-forward to February 2019 and Casey Lowry is a priority developing artist for independent label Access Records, part of First Access Entertainment, who house global talents such as Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and rising star Kara Marni.
Casey Lowry evokes all the best qualities of a star in the making: a commanding, vibrant presence combined with an effortlessly cool charm. Some artists reveal themselves in an instant. Others take a long way around, each release peeling back the layers of self slowly. For Casey, the case is very much the latter and unmistakably all on his own terms.
