WITH HIS DEBUT EP
now available for streaming and download, Casey's die-hard fans finally get to hear the great songwriting and vocals they have come to know with the strength of a professional studio behind it. Though, the support of the fans he has found in Philadelphia has fueled his success and taken him to where he is today, his roots grow much deeper than the city of brotherly love.

Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, and spending summers as a child in his family's native North Carolina, Casey Alvarez moved east with nothing but his guitar and aspirations of musical success. Since arriving in Philadelphia in mid 2009 he has become known throughout the region for his melodic tunes and blues influenced guitar work. With comparisons to everyone from John Mayer and Billy Joel to Eric Clapton and Jonny Lang, his musical range is unquestioned and continues to expand by the day. Casey is the Grand Prize Winner of the Philadelphia Songwriter Project, played Firefly Music Festival, has been the headliner at the Tin Angel, headlined and sold out the World Cafe Live and Queen Theater w/ 61 North, Ryan Tennis, Jake Snider, and Bronze Radio Return, recorded a live album at Chaplin's in Spring City and opened for Casey James (of American Idol fame) at the Ardmore Music Hall.And though the support of the fans he has found in Philadelphia has fueled his success and taken him to where he is today, his roots grow much deeper than the city of brotherly love.
Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, and spending summers as a child in his family’s native North Carolina, Casey Alvarez moved east with nothing but his guitar and aspirations of musical fame and fortune. His first step towards music was when he was given a bass guitar at the age of 12. After learning the basics of music on his Washburn he moved on the acoustic guitar and never looked back. Writing his first song at the age of 16 he knew at that moment that music was his main goal in life and that it would be what would carry him through. By 18, with over 20 songs in his repertoire, Casey decided that York was just a stepping stone to where he knew he had to go: Philadelphia.
Since arriving in mid 2009 he has become known throughout the region for his melodic tunes and blues influenced guitar work. With comparisons to everyone from John Mayer and Billy Joel to Eric Clapton and Jonny Lang, his musical range is unquestioned and continues to expand all the time. His confidence increasing daily, and shows and gigs growing exponentially, Casey soon found himself with an ever-growing and loyal fan base that was excited to have a fresh face with a unique and polished sound. Soon after, he was playing some of the most prestigious venues the city had to offer. Headlining at the Tin Angel, recording a live album at Chaplin’s in Spring City, selling out the World Café Live, opening for Ryan Tennis and Jake Snider at the Queen Theater.
While he is thrilled to have accomplished so much in his time playing music, he isn’t done yet. With countless more goals to achieve and inevitable obstacles to overcome, Casey has only begun his musical journey and you can be sure that it will be one that many people will soon be paying close attention to.
