#15 - Studios, Pianos and Donuts

In this episode of the Casey Stratton Podcast I discuss the recording process of Standing at the Edge including playing a recording of the early demo of Hollow that was done at Patrick Leonard's home studio. I then perform Witches from Whirlwind Medusa. Music Rec this time is.....wait for it...ME! Pick up last year's holiday record Icicles or any of the holiday collections, or get them all in the Complete Collection at! Plugging the holidays. You betcha!®Sarah Palin

"Icicles" is Casey's 5th holiday effort recorded in 2007 and includes favorites such as "Away in a Manger" and "Joy to the World" while also incorporating classical pieces and 5 original songs by Casey.

#14 - Signing, Producers and Tori Stories

In this episode of the Casey Stratton Podcast I talk more about signing to Sony, the producer search for Standing at the Edge and the process of ultimately landing Patrick Leonard. I then answer a question about Tori Amos and my own work and go on to perform a cover of Tori's Doughnut Song from her 1996 album Boys For Pele. Music Rec this time is Sarah Fimm's Nexus.

How refreshing it is to hear an unsigned artist that can create a sound so unlike the radio trash forced upon us. Sara reminds us that the mass media rulers aren't always in control of an artists creativity!
Sara reminds one of Tori Amos due to the piano content, but her lyrics may bring on visions of an angry (or deeply moody) Sarah McLachlan. But her sound is truly her own. One who has heard her haunting voice in "Red Paper Bag" once will be able to pick her out on the radio in seconds flat. Don't let this one pass you by. Try her now. - Amazon review
