Casey Brothers, currently the drummer of Wildling (formerly of Cayucas) just released his newest tune. "When People Don't Rock Out" feels like an island jam, sipping piña coladas under a lazy sun, grilling fresh caught fish and building sand castles under we're sun burnt. It's the perfect escape for today's oddly overcast weather here in LA!
Casey grew up in Minnesota. He moved to Los Angeles in 2011 for a short-term job with the Sierra Club, and stayed for the weather and the music. He started playing drums with Cayucas in 2012 and saw the band from its first shows to the end of its first album cycle. He joined Wildling in October 2014. Wildling is recording its debut EP this summer in prep for a fall release, when they'll also be touring as direct support for Young the Giant.
While playing drums with different projects, Casey has always maintained a prolific pace when it comes to songwriting. His upbringing in rural western Minnesota led to themes of solitude, separation, and introspection in his music. Since moving to California, the themes have remained while the sound has incorporated elements of surf and beach.
He currently lives on the ocean with his girlfriend Ally in Santa Monica. Besides making music and playing with Wildling, he travels often and writes essays that he shares on gentlemyn.com.
