Updates

Big Announcement!

Here’s the big announcement….

I’m very excited to share that I’m now partnering with Patreon!

In these troubling times where the biggest corporations in the world profit from widespread artist exploitation, Patreon literally is the saving grace of the Internet. I’ve done the research and there’s no other platform like it. This is the future. For real.

Patreon, on a large scale, can help nurture and support emerging artists in this struggling digital music economy so we can continue to create (and deliver) art – directly to the people. With Patreon, ANYONE can become a Patron of the Arts!

I’ll be delivering new songs/videos every week, straight to Patrons. Oh, and you can get my upcoming single/music video early and instantly when you subscribe today!

I hope you’ll come along for the journey. Together, we can accomplish the impossible: http://patreon.com/mikecaseyjazz

Final Album Update

Wow…it’s been a crazy year everyone! Finally have some time to slow down and check in.

Thanks to your help and support through this PledgeMusic campaign….. as a young, independent jazz artist (WITHOUT MANAGEMENT, AGENT OR LABEL BACKING) I was able to accomplish the following, against all odds:

-Cover album & tour expenses without going in debt (in general, lol) or to a label (retaining my rights to the master recordings and publishing of my original music)

-Distribute my album worldwide (physical/digital sales in 15+ countries, plus 125K+ streams on Spotify, and 30K+ on TIDAL and still growing). This is unheard of for a young jazz artist’s self-released debut without label backing.

-Garner significant local, national, and international press from Spotify’s State of Jazz, JAY Z’s TIDAL, Quincy Jones Productions, Sonny Rollins, NPR/WBGO, Jazz in Europe (2x), Sofar Sounds NYC, Italy’s Argonauta Magazine, Canada’s Jazz da Gama, Live for Live Music (album review and video premiere), plus digital & print features in nearly every major CT publication including The Hartford Courant, The Day, New Haven Register, and Connecticut Magazine -- and much more!

-Single-handedly book & tour 25 cities in 5 months including sold out / packed shows in NYC, Hartford CT and Old Lyme CT

-Triple my online fanbase in less than a year

-Cover some living expenses & all the countless unpaid hours every week behind the scenes it takes me as a one man team to make all these things happen on the business side – before you include hours of daily practice (unpaid, obviously) to continue my growth as an artist/songwriter.

Here’s the thing though – that was one album campaign, which is now over. I fully intend on taking things much further – to the so-called “next level”, and to do so, I need your help! Among my goals in the near future are to tour internationally, hire part-time staff to help with booking/marketing, and most importantly, release new music on an ongoing, more frequent basis, at a high level.

Once again, I am eternally grateful for your support during this album campaign! It truly made a huge difference. More to come very soon!

Album/Tour Update!

Hey everyone,

How are you?

The album & tour so far has been an overwhelming success! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help.

All physical items have been shipped, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet please let me know.

Part 1 of our tour is almost over – closing it out where we started in NYC! Thursday at Luca’s Jazz Corner on the Upper East Side, from 9-11pm. We’ve had some really special shows and memories so far. More dates are up on www.mikecaseyjazz.com/shows and more to come in spring/summer!

The album has gotten quite a bit of press as well, locally, nationally, and even internationally! Feel free to take a look at http://mikecaseyjazz.com/press

My heart is beyond full. Thank you all so much for your help in making my dreams come true!

P.S. here’s our latest music video, in honor of Ornette Coleman’s recent birthday!
