Casey Abrams has put a “spell on me”…
This is why Casey Abrams is so fabulous and what we can all learn from him.
His voice is awesome and he knows how to use it. It’s raspy and grindy and full of blues and soul. Yum! It is hard to have a voice like that. It is something that you are just born with.
(Please, if your voice does not lend itself naturally to that sound, do not try and emulate it because you will hurt yourself. Since his tone is NOT pure, your can really cause damage to your vocal chords to try and emulate it if your own tone is clean and pure. Love his voice for what it is; there are not many who naturally have that fabulous unique tone.)
He is an incredibly well-studied musician. He can play numerous instruments very well, and he completely understands the use of the melodic line in his own singing. He sings like a composer, totally trained and knowledgeable. His choices both musically and stylistically are incredible. I love that such a well versed musician is playing out to America and hope a lot more music lessons will be taken as a result of it.
He is the ultimate performer. This is my favorite part. On top of Casey Abrams having a great voice and being an educated musician, he is also an incredible performer with brilliant comic timing on par with great comedians. His performances are unique and keep me on the edge of my chair.
Here is a link to his performance of ”I Put a Spell on You”:
Casey stands out for a reason. He is phenomenal. I hope that he is here to stay in the public eye. I think I would enjoy watching him in a Will Ferrell movie as much as listening to his albums; that is a pretty unique combination.
I am sure he will sell many, many concert seats in his life. I cannot wait to see more.
