We had the good fortune of connecting with caaaaseyyyy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi caaaaseyyyy, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
Crowded rooms brought together by the celebration of common interest. I find myself most inspired when I am emotionally moved in an unexpected way and this usually comes from being in a crowd of people sharing a moment together whether that’s in a movie theatre, at a concert, or in a cafe. Shared experiences can also be extremely personal and intimate through a singular lens and that’s where i find most meaning when i’m writing alone.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What I’m most proud of is that i figured out early on exactly what i would need to learn or understand in order to fully execute my artistic vision. I became a student of audio engineering because I wanted to craft and explore sounds on my own terms. I learned the rules so i could break them in order to create exactly what i want. I’ve never been a great cook, but have always admired those who have the ability to craft the meal they want based on a particular craving they may have without ever using a recipe. I’ve always aimed to reach a similar level of understanding that can positively inform the craft of writing, recording, and producing songs. Creation at its purest form can be such a transcendent experience and being able to share that with others is a gift. My main focus is to create songs that i can disappear in.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Everyone has their own expectations of a trip to LA and I think for any friend of mine the most important part of the visit would be to throw all pre conceived notions out the window and show them how casually beautiful and diverse this city is by like going on very low key fun adventures.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My friends. The people who are closest to me are simply the ones who deserve the most credit. The respect shared among my friends and the faith we all have in each other is vital for my will to keep pushing.
