SPECIAL EXCLUSIVE: New Music – Casey Barnes ‘Flesh and Bone’

theaussieword.com had the pleasure of an exclusive listen to the brand new EP from local Australian artist Casey Barnes
theaussieword.com loves supporting local talent. On this release, Casey Barnes in five stunning tracks shows why he is one of the countries most popular talents. From the very beginning, the lead in track Flesh & Bone, Casey takes the audience onto a amazing musical journey with his country sounding vocals and backing sounds.
A professional sound that will be around for many years to come.  Valentine, the second track off the album is soothing to your musical ears, it’s smooth and it’s radio friendly. Waiting On The Day and Hard Times are two strong tracks that keeps listener ears begging for more! The final track of the EP, ‘Michelle’ is a live acoustic song where Casey Barnes teams up with iconic music legend Rick Price. The track is one of my favourites on the EP – so good to see two greats in the business team up to produce something so beautiful.

Casey Barnes has announced June 13th the official release date of his highly anticipated EP ʻFlesh and Boneʼ. The EP, co-written with fellow Australian Rick Price (Heaven Knows/Not a Day Goes By) was recorded in Nashville in 2013, with Price also producing and mixed by Grammy Award winner Jason Lehning. 
Caseyʼs enthusiasm with this release is evident as he explains ‘This latest collection of tracks is definitely one I’m the most proud of to date. By combining my authentic sound with the rootsy influence of writing & recording in Nashville, I feel that I’ve finally arrived with a release that truly represents where I’ve always wanted to be.’
