“Pawnshop Gospel” is the name that singer/songwriter Casey Hurt coined for his music. As he plays for his devoted fans, it’s just all soul and bones, with a guitar, piano, or any other instrument that he can grab a hold of.
Casey’s new release “Half as Much as Love” encapsulates the concept of Pawnshop Gospel to its core. Tracks vary from genres such as Folk to Rock, including “Family” and “Mary, Mary” as well as the fearless Blues-influenced “Back for Me.”
Casey’s absence of auto-tune or synthetic sound, according to a reviewer from Sonicbids termed his music as “Black-coffee honest.” Many accomplished music professionals were also by his side creating this masterful album, such as producer Eric Schultz, Grammy-winning engineer Michael Rosen (Carlos Santana, Michelle Branch), and musicians Michael Urbano (Sheryl Crow, Cracker, Smashmouth), Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello, John Hiatt) and Adele Stein (Sting, Rush, Bruno Mars).
Making music is the center of Casey’s existence and his vocals, instrumental talents and lyrical prose truly demonstrate the raw beauty that was created for “Half as Much as Love.” It’s a work of art from start to finish.
