Details of Casey James and the Ticket Luck value
To be able to cast away the shadows created by the phenomena called ‘American Idol’ and make an image of your own is no easy task for any singer coming from the show. However, unlike most former contestants who rushed into the recording studios, third place finalist (American Idol 2010) Casey James took a good two years to make his debut. The result has been totally worth the wait as the country artist makes an impressive individual statement with his well composed first music album. Though he is the same boy who performed like a rock star on the Idol stage with excellent guitar riffs and vocals back in 2010, yet his music is a revelation to the multiple traits and talents that he embodies an as artist. Casey James tickets are a chance to witness the singer and his music in its true essence.
Casey James was raised in a small town in North Texas called Cool. He started playing the guitar at the age of thirteen. Not many are familiar with the fact that before making it to the popular TV show, the singer was part of his band called The Casey James Band, for which he also wrote his first song ‘Freeze’ in 2002. The band also comprised of his bassist brother Billy Cole and drummer Jace McCann.
The singer released his self titled debut album in March 2012. Bearing strong influences of classic rock and Texas blues, the record is a diverse collection of songs with James’ writing credentials on nine of the total eleven tracks. It opens on a positive note with the track ‘The good life’. The song is about a contented man who is grateful for his blessings and confident about the direction his life is moving towards.
The second number ‘Crying on a suitcase’ describes the classic scene where the girl is at the airport while the boy is rushing to stop her. The song infuses a sense of urgency. The smooth country cries of James convey the desperate urge of the singer holding on to someone he is about to lose. The melancholic guitar lines further enhance the passionate vocals of the song.
‘Let’s not call it a night’ is a sizzling track with crispy direct phrases and sultry country vocals by James. The cleverly crafted number is bound to hook you along its play. James kicks it up with ‘drive’, where his mussed up guitar riffs and carefree lyrics set the perfect mood and thrill of long drive adventures.
From the fast paced ‘Drive’ James moves to a soft ‘Love the way you are’. It is an expression of the feeling of separation from the one you love while longing for the same. The song is a sentimental track with a universal appeal where James filters out most of the country twang. ‘Undone’ is another love song of the album. ‘She’s Money’ is another popular song of the record. It has the touch and feel of a 70s rock classic. It is followed by the southern rock number ‘Tough love’ where James’ rough and hard edged vocal delivery gives a cowboy vibe. This has also drawn him comparisons with Bon Jovi and Jason Aldean. Other tracks of Casey’s first record include ‘So sweet’, ‘Working on it’ and ‘Miss your fire’.
Ever since he appeared as a contestant of America’s most popular TV singing competition, the most pertinent question amongst the music circles has been whether James is a singer who can play the guitar or a guitarist who can sing. The debate continues with this album which is as exceptional in terms of guitar work as the vocals. However, it is best to leave this question to the expertise of the critics and musicians while you enjoy the various musical contributions that the versatile artist has to offer. So get your Casey James tickets and get ready to catch the singer live in your city.
