Biography

Cas Haley is breaking out on his own terms.

"Connection", his Easy Star Records debut, is aptly named. It's all about those deep-running connections that make him what he is—those unbreakable links between artist and audience, between styles of music, between art and life, and most of all, between all people. As Cas points out, reggae's core message is, after all, ... Read more in Amazon's Cas Haley Store

Editorial Reviews

With his debut album selling over 30,000 copies without major distribution or marketing, Cas Haley retreated to his home in Paris, Texas, to create a timeless album of reggae-pop songs filled with chill grooves and irresistible melodies. His crystalline voice and funky, easygoing beats earned Cas a second-place finish on America s Got Talent, which in turn netted him a measure of fame and a following. But the contest also locked the Texan singer/songwriter into a major label deal that didn't feel right. So, not wanting to be turned into a manufactured product, he struck out on his own. The superb result: Connection, a collection of songs basking in the musical maturity that comes from staying true to his artistic vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST HAVE for your collection!! September 14, 2010
By KyleD
Format:Audio CD
This album fuses Funk, Blues, Jazz, Reggae, and Soul all in one. I have followed Cas and his band Woodbelly for a while now. I am happy to say that this album is the best of what he does. Cas's voice is amazing! And throughout the album you can hear his clever writing style, coupled with beats and rhythms that will make you move! I call it "feel good music". The arrangements on the songs are very impressive, and it is beautifully produced. Cas is his own artist, and every track showcases this.
Tracks like "Will I Find", and "Counting Stars" hit home with the listener, with a raw sincerity that connects you with him. "Better" is an uplifting track that you cant help moving to! Please...go get this album! Worth every penny! You wont be disappointed.
FIVE STARS!!!

My wife is into raggae so I thought I would get this for her. She absolutely loves it, as do I. Cas is definitely a very talented guy with a unique voice. Love the upbeat music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cas Fan but..... August 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying that Cas Haley is, in my humble opinion, a musical artist of the highest caliber. Great voice and honest style. I don't watch much TV so I never saw him before I stumbled on his music on YouTube. After listening to his solo stuff at the BING Lounge I became a huge fan. I have to say, when I purchased this album I was surprised. I like it, and rated it 4 stars, but in truth I think the Solo guitar only (I'll say original though I don't know that's true), were much better tunes to me.

Some of the CD versions ... Release me for instance, had the same style, but the beginning tempo and brass instruments created an entirely different song (story). Same thing with "Slow Down". This became one of my favorite songs of all time when I heard Cas sing his live version, but when the song came out on CD...it was entirely different and kinda lost me.

Many of the songs keep their originality so buy the CD, but if Cas Haley ever puts out a studio version of just him and his guitar.....I'll be the first in line. I appreciate the hard work and talent that surrounds him in his CD's, but he has a unique voice that needs to stand alone or it loses something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy!!!! April 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Cas Haley is truly one of a kind. A blend of many different styles that work perfect. You will not be disappointed with this album. I met Cas at a show a couple of years ago and he was a great guy. He stayed and spoke to every single person that waited after the show. Great guy, fantastic performer, and a truly unique musician. Look up his album "Favorites" on the internet that he did with Josh Heinrichs. It's awesome too.

3.0 out of 5 stars over produced ( just a little)
Decent album, but a little boring in my opinion. I like Cass's sound, but the album is a little heavy on the production side. That said he's got time to find his sound. Read more

I heard this artist on a morning news program and was instantly interested. Ordered the cd and have been very happy. Wish I could have seen him live while he was in town.
