Bassist and vocalist, Casey Abrams, will make his Chesky Records debut this Spring with a new album combining electrifying originals and compelling covers. "Robot Lovers" is the first single from this new release, showcasing both the frenetic energy of the band, as well as the unique nature of Abrams' creativity as a songwriter and performer.

All around musical wunderkind, Casey Abrams, has built a strong following through the years building on his public debut on American Idol in 2011. High praise was heaped on him early from fans and judges alike, prompting Randy Jackson to state that "I don't think I've ever seen in my life, on this show definitely, somebody as talented as you are in a musical aspect." Following his stint on the show, Casey released his debut album, Casey Abrams, co-produced by Jackson, which featured the Billboard Holiday 100 single "Baby, It's Cold Outside". In addition to releasing his sophomore effort, Tales From the Gingerbread House, Casey has been a regular contributor to rotating musical collective Postmodern Jukebox, touring with the band internationally.

Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 30 years with Chesky Recordings. Also, these Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure music ever recorded.
The Ohio Weather Band
The Ohio Weather Band
The Ohio Weather Band formed in a small town in Ohio­ before the members even
realized it. Corey King (guitar/vocals), Derek Strata (bass/vocals) and Ray Lumpp
(percussion/vocals) were friends long before bandmates. Corey had written songs for a solo EP
(“Ohio Weather”) and asked his friends Derek and Ray to perform on the record as bass player
and drummer, respectively. At that point, the band was established.
In 2014, The Ohio Weather Band released their self­titled, debut album. Most of the
album was recorded by the group, though they managed to salvage a few guitar and drum
tracks from previous recording sessions. The album was produced, mixed and packaged solely
by the band. This served as a local and regional launching pad for OWB: local magazines and
newspapers supported the album and honored it as one of the best area albums in Cleveland,
OH and Canton, OH. Shortly afterwards, The Ohio Weather Band went on a self­booked three
week tour around the Midwest and Eastern US.
“Crooked Light” is the sophomore release by The Ohio Weather Band. The album was,
again, self­recorded in various locations including a garage loft and the basement of a house in
Akron, Ohio, in which the members currently live. Unlike the group’s last, self­titled album,
“Crooked Light” was not completely an in­house project. Spencer Martin joined the team to
co­produce and co­mix the album. The result is an album with a fresh sonic perspective and
evolved songwriting. Lyrically, the album projects the thoughts and experiences from skewed
perspectives. Regarding the songs, Corey says, “It seems like there are simple, obvious
meanings to the songs. But there’s something bigger behind it.”
