Casey Turner “Melt In The Shade”
Guitarist, singer, songwriter Casey Turner has a distinct sound that now glides on a mellow vibe. Originally from the East Coast he spent his earlier years sheltered from the winters under the warm rays of the sunshine state where he studied engineering, surfed, and formed the punk rock trio Liquid Image. Upon graduating from Florida Institute of Technology, Casey hired on at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in the main propulsion systems group where he groomed his expertise in rocket science by day and punk rock music by night. The next few years proved rewarding with east coast summer tours as the groups music was charted on CMJ college radio and featured in dozens of surf, skate, snowboard, action sports videos and television. Playing premier venues and scoring epic hurricane season swells along the way, Liquid Image carved its own niche in the east coast surf community and music scene.(www.LiquidImage.cc )
With oranges and old people on the rise, coupled by inconsistent swell and a wayning music scene; westward progression was inevitable. Casey moved to San Diego, California where he made a change in musical direction recording his 1st solo album “No Stress Express”. Now armed with an acoustic guitar and ukulele he glides on a mellower vibe playing venues throughout Southern California and Hawaii.
