EY DONAHEW ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ’15 YEARS, THE WILD RIDE’ & LONDON RELEASE SHOW

With fifteen years under his belt and just as many chart-topping singles to his credit, Texas artist Casey Donahew has created something special for the many loyal fans who attend his shows and sing his lyrics back to him and his band at sold-out venues all over the USA. ’15 YEARS, THE WILD RIDE’, produced by Josh Leo (Alabama, Drew Baldridge, Love & Theft) and Donahew, is released on 6th October, with an album launch event at Oslo in Hackney, London on Friday 13th October. You can pre-order the new album and get Casey’s anthem ‘Stockyards’ and two other songs immediately HERE.

Limited tickets for the album launch show in London are available here at just £5 each.

The album offers fifteen of Donahew’s biggest songs to date, including hits like; ’12 Gauge’, ‘Double Wide Dream’ and ‘Fallen’, one of the first songs he ever wrote. And of course, no Casey Donahew retrospective would be complete without the fan favourite, ‘Stockyards’, the ode to where it all began. The album also includes a new recording of Matchbox 20’s ‘3AM’, a staple of Casey’s live set. For him, re-recording these songs has offered a chance to reflect on just how far he’s come from that first gig at the Thirsty Armadillo, all those years ago, to the packed houses he sings to at iconic venues across Texas and the USA like Red Rocks and Billy Bob’s today – and all the vivid memories in between. In addition to the new album, Casey recorded a series of short videos discussing his career to date – check out the series here.

While Casey’s original recordings still stand the test of time, the modest entertainer admits that they were not recorded under the most favourable conditions. “When I first started we didn’t have much money and really didn’t know what we were doing, but we knew we wanted to make something for our fans. So we went in and made ‘Lost Days’, our first record, and spent about $1500.00 doing one take with an acoustic guitar, bass and drums. We didn’t even have a lead guitar player, so we had a guy go in and go over the top of the songs one time through. So there’s four instruments, one vocal, and no harmonies – it’s about as basic as you could get,” says Donahew. “These songs have been with me a long time and they’re a part of who I am. It’s been a lot of fun to go back in the studio to record them the right way and pay tribute to my fans and celebrate the years.”
