Casey May

Is a Canadian Recording Artist and Singer/Songwriter from the small town of Stewiacke Nova Scotia. Although Casey has a deep love for writing and performing in several different genres from folk and country to pop and rock, his music is part of the new wave of country music, which his mentor and producer, Darryl Landry has coined “new millennial country”; much in the same vein as artists like Keith Urban, Sam Hunt, Zac Brown with a touch of John Mayer, and Jason Mraz.

In 2012, Casey began a development partnership with Darryl Landry, the CEO and founder of J. Adair Music. Landry has provided mentorship and guidance to Casey’s talents as a performer and songwriter. At 21, Casey received his first official writing credit; co-writing ‘Like Lightning’ with Landry and emerging country artist Makayla Lynn. The song went on to be featured on Makayla Lynn’s 4-time award nominated album ‘Daydream’ and in March of 2015 ‘Like Lightning’ made the semi-finals of the 2014 International Song Writing Competition.

In addition to his song writing abilities, Casey really shines during his live performances, from intimate solo acoustic performances on up to a full band configuration. In 2013 Casey performed an acoustic set in the Brown Bear Festival at Neptune Theatre by Promoter Brutas Innovation and Design (BiD). Positive reception from the show landed Casey a spot in BiD’s Christmas on the Town show in December of 2013; and the headlining spot in their Forever Young show at the Peggy Corkum Music Room in May of 2014. Casey’s headlining show was the first advanced sellout BiD had ever hosted.

On January 2015, Casey entered pre-production for his first full length studio album (Eden). To assist with this Darryl brought on board another member of the J. Adair Music team, singer and songwriter Ryan Roberts (a five-time Eastern Canadian Bluegrass composer of the year winner and former member of Grammy nominated bluegrass band Special Consensus) as well as co-producer Bobby Terry (Nashville Producer, Songwriter, and Session Musician). April saw Casey heading to Nashville to begin recording at OMNIsound Studios, and after months of hard work Eden was finally released for physical purchase and digital download on July 8th 2015.
