Hello my name is Karan Casey and I am making a new album. I am looking for your help to fund it. In the past I have made albums mostly based around traditional and folk music but with this album I have written all of the songs and music myself so it is a very important project for me. The songs are very personal and map the path I have been on for the last couple of years. They are songs of love and healing from the inner workings of my mind. In many ways they are a huge step in trusting my own story enough to confide in you the listener. Basically they mean a lot to me.
I have been rehearsing with a great electric guitar player called Eoghan Reagan and am delighted that Graham Henderson will be playing piano on the album too. Also someone I trust greatly, Niall Vallely will appear on the album. And the fantastic Mick Flannery is going to sing a song with me. And most importantly to myself personally my Dad, Karl Casey is going to join me on a song. There will be other people involved as well. I will fill you in with updates as I go along.
I really need your support to make this project happen. Without your help I can't make the album. The money will be used to rehearse, record, produce, mix, manufacture and publicise the work which I will put out on my own label Crow Valley Music. I also really want to tour this music extensively as I am genuinely excited about this project and would love to bring it to as wide an audience as possible. It is very important to me, so any donation at all would be greatly appreciated. No matter how big or small. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy the music. All the best. Karan
