September 07, 2011CHRISTMAS EP, TOUR DATES FROM CAS HALEY
"Texas-based singer-songwriter Cas Haley will release a Christmas EP this coming November 8th on Easy Star Records. The release features four Holiday classics arranged by Cas, in some cases incorporating elements of Texas swing and reggae, but always focused on Cas’s incredible voice. The fifth song on the EP, the title track “Gifts To Give,” is an original song written by Cas. The EP comes out amidst a busy run of tour dates lasting from September 13th through November 23rd, where Cas will join Trevor Hall, The Green, Mike Pinto and Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad on their tours throughout the country.
“I have wanted to make a Christmas album for a long, long time,” Cas says. “But, I always felt that if I was going to, I needed to write at least one original song to make my own mark and that’s where I have been stuck .What can I say about Christmas that hasn’t been said? It’s tough!”
Inspiration came to him last summer and resulted in a song that may one day be considered as classic as the other tracks he has tackled here: “Let It Snow,” “The Christmas Song,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” and “Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Says Cas, “It [“Gifts To Give”] is certainly not as graceful as some of the all-time classics I have paired it with on this EP, but it comes from the heart and, I think, taps into that Spirit of Christmas that I love.”
Cas Haley will be playing mostly solo acoustic sets during this stretch of touring, bringing an intimate take on material from this upcoming EP and his first two albums, including the critically-acclaimed Connection (2010), to over 43 venues. He begins with shows supporting Mike Pinto September 13 through September 30; continues by supporting Trevor Hall (who he has toured with twice before) from October 7 through October 29; and finishes by joining the second half of the hot fall tour featuring Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and the fast-rising band (and label mates at Easy Star) from Hawaii, the Green. He also appears in Baltimore on October 6 as part of WTMD’s First Thursdays Concert Series and headlines an appearance at the College of the Albemarle on October 15. As usual, fans can expect collaborations with all of the artists Cas joins on tour.
