Kasey Burton is quite the entertainer. Performing live shows since she was just 14, the musician already has a multitude of experience under her belt. Some highlighted performances include the world famous House of Blues in Chicago Illinois, the Phases of the Moon Festival, both the Indiana & Illinois State Fairs, and opening up for acts such as Diamond Rio and the legendary Rock n Roll artist Henry Lee Summer.
Along with performing, Kasey also likes sharing her talents through her songwriting. She started writing and recording songs at the young age of 11, and since then has released 1 full length album, and 3 EP’s.
Kasey developed her writing even further by attending Trevecca Nazarene University where she later received her degree in songwriting. While she was attending college, she was studying under well known Nashville songwriter Kim Mclean. Most recently Kasey has put that degree to use by releasing her new EP Long Way Home.
From Me to You
Hi, I’m Kasey! I love watermelon, the color blue, and cats. I’m the youngest of my family, whom I love so much, with two older brothers and a sister. I grew up in a small town in Indiana where everyone knows everyone and I couldn’t be more thankful for all the memories and time spent there. Some small things that bring me joy include dancing, rainstorms, cookie dough, sunshine, and late night grocery trips! Summer is my favorite season, with autumn as a close second. Besides music, I enjoy spending time with friends, card games, volleyball, basketball, dressing up (yes I still play dress up, no I’m not ashamed), and experiencing and trying new things!
I make music for many reasons. I make music because I can’t imagine life without it. I love being able to share and express feelings and thoughts through the crazy, sporadic, yet intricate process that is songwriting. I make music because I have experienced first hand the type of impact and healing it can have on a person. Music has an incredible power to be able to change a mood in an instant. Music helps us remember some of our favorite memories. It can make us happy. It can lift us up when we’re down. It can inspire us. That’s why I love making music and why I love sharing it with you.
Among the most important reasons why I make music is because I believe with all my heart it is what God has created me to do. Ever since I was little I’ve had this overwhelming clear call to music and as I’ve grown older it has become more clear to me exactly what I’m supposed to do with it. My goal is to only put out good music, and to never be an artist that a mom would have to switch the radio station on. I want to use the platform that music gives artist’s to be a role model and a friend to anyone out there who believes that they’re alone in their struggles and fears.
In my musical journey I have learned that having people who believe in you means everything, so the last thing I want say is thank you! Thank you to anyone who has ever made it out to any of my shows. Thank you to any person who has ever purchased or taken time out of their day to listen to my music. Thank you to the supporters who have liked my facebook page, subscribed on youtube, and/or followed me on instagram, twitter, or spotify. I can never express my gratitude enough, for it is you guys who help me accomplish my goals and live out my dream, so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
