Casey is a singer/songwriter & worship leader of North Point Community church.
His new self titled project, set for November 11, 2013, is a collection of new songs that have been taking shape over the last several years. However, with this new record, he was inspired to take a little different approach.
Often the expectation for worship leaders is to have "Songs for Sunday", but seeing how that is just one day of the week, his desire is to connect people with the bigger picture of worship, with songs like "When You Smile" for example.
"I wrote When you smile for my wife and it's a reminder to me of how we are told 'husbands love your wife, the way Christ loved the church' which I think we get this backwards sometimes and I wanted to have a fun song to encourage the family and a husband/father in his next moment of worship by loving that family with all he's got."
Other songs like "I will stand by you" were inspired by the families he has walked closely with at Lighthouse Family Retreat, a ministry that reaches out to families living through childhood cancer. "This song is a reminder to me that real worship doesn't only happen on a stage in front of people, but often in the trenches of life, carrying each other's burdens and serving one another as Jesus made it pretty clear we are to be doing."
In his new project he says, "I love a lot of music styles and loved exploring that with this record, but as the styles of music change, the message of love stays the same. So whether picking your kids up from school or going for a run, it’s my prayer that these songs will bring hope, encourage you, and meet you in your everyday lives."
This is the experience he tries to bring to the stage when he leads and sings, desiring that people connect with a real God who can meet them wherever they are and change their lives forever. From high energy moments to heart felt stories, with Casey you'll experience authentic transparency and be moved to walk closer with the one who gave you life... and worship.
Casey lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife Anisa and 2 daughters.
