plus CASEY WICKSTROM
Casey Wickstrom is a multi-instrumentalist looping artist from San Jose, CA. He sings and plays guitar, lap slide, three string slide cigar box guitar, bass, and other instruments. His latest single "Eminence Front" charted on Apple Music Blues charts, and he has been named one of the Top 100 Unsigned Artists by Music Connection Magazine.
Casey Wickstrom was born in Mountain View, California, but grew up in the small isolated mountain town of Durango, Colorado. It was here that he began writing and playing music, inspired by artists like Paul Simon and Ben Harper. The prominent bluegrass scene in Durango influenced Wickstrom to pursue guitar, bass, and take up lap slide guitar, using an old acoustic that he converted into a lap slide.

A musical Swiss army knife, she handles a variety of styles with ease, sliding gracefully from Hawaiian to swing, from R&B and rock, from blues to jazz and back again. She has played with countless bands, established and up-and-coming musicians and visiting Hawaiian players. Audiences love her incredible musicianship and unique vocal interpretation along with her comfortable and fun stage presence, and undeniable oneness with her music.
