Tim Raybon said, “There are a lot of great singers out there … Casey Penn is not only a great singer-songwriter but someone who sings from the depths of her heart, and you feel it when you hear her sing. A wonderful talent!”
Based in Central Arkansas, Casey is excited to launch her solo career. She is a former founding member of the Americana duo Lee Street Lyrical. Now dissolved, the band was signed to Travianna Records and was a repeat nominee for Acoustic Act of the Year in the Arkansas Country Music Awards. Their release, “I’ll Never Be A Mountain Girl,” written by Casey Penn and Nashville artist Irene Kelley, reached #8 on Bluegrass Today’s Weekly Grassicana chart. Casey also serves as a coordinator for the Nashville Songwriters Association, Central Arkansas Chapter.
Previously, Casey won an Arkansas-wide songwriting competition hosted by Infrared Studios with co-writer Rodger King. As a result, the two produced and released a Spring/Summer 2016 LP, KINGPENN. Bluegrass Unlimited reviewer Bill Conger wrote of the album, “One of the greatest joys in reviewing CDs is the discovery of new music … Penn’s cut-to-the-soul vocals are featured in several of the songs … My favorite is the opening cut, ‘Oceans (I Have Cried),’ which won an honorable mention in the 2016 Hazel Dickens Bluegrass Songwriting Competition.”
