Hi - I’m Casey McPherson. I have been making music all my life. I started with a piano when I was 5, and it was all downhill from there!! My first band was called Endochine, then I started Alpha Rev after that band broke up. The drummer broke my nose.. but I did hit him first... ah, rock bands in your 20s :) We’re still friends, and we all learned alot.
Alpha Rev has an amazing cast of band members that change periodically, and I keep it running by writing and recording music for it. I’ve played with some amazing artists over the years, had a couple of top 10 singles on the radio, a video featured on VH1, songs in a many movies and tv shows, and ultimately a very successful career. I’m so grateful for it!! But I really all owe it to you, the listener. The music believer. I wanted to get closer to that.. So, I started Cas.e Sessions in 2016, as a music and film experience for my dedicated fans, and creativity lovers. I play them an online show, write a new song, and make a documentary every month around the inspiration of the song. If you’re interested in getting music every month and becoming a member you can go to casesesssions.com. It’s a fantastic group of people and I think you’ll find it more of a community than anything else. I’ve most recently released the music of the first season now, available on alpharev.com and all the other places you go :)
I have also entered into the progressive music world in the most unlikely way. Mike Portnoy had an Endochine record from long ago, and recommended me as the last member, lead singer and guitar player for my prog band called "Flying Colors." These guys have been mentors and inspirational brothers to me, and we've released two records, with another on the way slotted for 2019. It's some of the most genre defying, generational crossing music I've every been apart of creating. On top of that, the progressive music community is second to none in accepting people for who you are, especially when you are willing to go outside of the box!! Since Flying Colors, I've also stepped into a band called "The Sea Within" that I've been singing for in Europe, which is another amazing progressive experience.
In 2017, my daughter Rose was diagnosed with a rare disease with no cure. For the first time in my life, I was faced with a challenge of saving Rose or just living with the consequences. In a twist of fates, I quit everything I was doing, started To Cure A Rose Foundation, and now usually only play music if it's for a fundraiser for the foundation. I still write a lot, and may have new music that comes out periodically on social media and digital places. I'll do RoseFest every year, but primarily now I spend my time developing a drug for Rose, as well as other children with rare neurological genetic diseases.
