Filmed in 3-camera HD video with CD-quality sound, this episode of Live From Empty Sea brings you within feet of a singer-songwriter at the top of his game.


 Casey Neill has performed throughout the world on stages such as New York's Town Hall, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, and Glasgow's Old Fruitmarket. He has played as a member of the Minus Five as well as sharing stages with Jello Biafra, Pete Seeger, Sunny Day Real Estate, Camper Van Beethoven, & countless more. An acclaimed songwriter, Irish supergroup Solas recorded Casey's original song "Lowground" on their albums Waiting for an Echo and Reunion.

In 1997, he inked a three record deal with the folk label Appleseed and was featured on their tribute to Pete Seeger along with Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg, and Bonnie Raitt. A compilation of his material entitled Memory Against Forgetting was released by Amy Ray's Daemon imprint in 2005. Following a few years of residence in New York City, Casey moved back to Portland and its thriving music community. The Norway Rats formed in 2007 to tour behind his album Brooklyn Bridge (In Music We Trust label), followed by the acclaimed Goodbye to the Rank and File.
