Casey Barnes is making his mark on the Australian music industry as one of the country’s most talented, emerging singer-songwriters. One of his biggest highlights to date has been opening for Bryan Adams at the outdoor concert series ‘A Day on the Green’ Following his set, the demand for his independently released album at the merchandising tent was overwhelming. This was the start of something special for Casey and he has gone on to play shows alongside acts such as Eskimo Joe, Vanessa Amorosi, The Whitlams, Diesel amongst many others. Casey was a top 12 finalist in Season 7 (2009) of Australian Idol. Consistently delivering dynamic performances week after week, Casey was highly respected by his peers with the judges assuring him he would undoubtedly go on to have a highly successful career due to his grace, maturity, solid voice and persistence. In addition to his success on Idol Casey embarked on a successful five week self funded promotional tour of the US and Europe, Casey decided it was time to explore other styles of music and test his talent. What transpired was proof there is no musical environment that he cannot adapt to. Australian DJ/Producer Marco Demark enlisted Casey to feature on his reworking of the Elton John classic, “Tiny Dancer”. The track reached number 1 on most of the dance charts in the UK, and then went onto reach Top5 on most of the dance charts throughout Europe including 1 in Italy followed by 5 in Casey’s home base, Australia. The track was also added to the daytime play lists of the biggest radio stations in the UK; Radio 1, Capital, Kiss FM and Galaxy. Superstar UK DJ Pete Tong chose “Tiny Dancer” as an ‘Essential Tune’ and following extensive play on his influential show on Radio 1. The tracks success has brought about further opportunities with Casey now working on future releases with DJ/ Producers including the likes of superstar DJ Tiesto among others. 2012 looks like being yet another busy year for Casey with him hoping to build on his most recent single release (‘Never Break You’) which reached #10 on the overall Australian iTunes charts and #1 on the ‘Rock’ singles chart. It also entered the ARIA Australian Singles Charts at #6 and AIR Music Charts at #1 with all of the proceeds raised from the sale of Never Break You going towards the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal to help support those affected by the Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi. Casey has just finished working with ARIA nominated producer Anthony Lycenko with a new album set for release in 2012.
