Casey Black with guest Michael Brunnock

Casey Black returns to Coughlans in anticipation of the new EP, Unwholly Human Being. The collection—to be released under Black’s nom de plume, Nada Rien—explores the roots and expressions of psychological suffering, from the universal to the personal, the likes of which knocked the artist out of his musical self for nearly a decade. Among the new songs is Black’s I’ve Got a Darkness, previously released by Mick Flannery.

A Nashville-born son of a Hall of Fame country songwriter (the late Charlie Black), Casey singer songwrites in a literary style about what it’s like to have a human mind in an animal’s body. Like if Dosoevsky had grown up near Music Row. Like if Hemingway had several mental illnesses and could finger pick. Casey was last in Ireland with musical brethren Niall Connolly and Mick Flannery before his first solo tour nearly 8 years ago.

The artist is calling this run The Death of Casey Black Tour as a way of allowing Casey Black to sing in Ireland one last time before retiring the name and returning as Nada Rien in the future.

What the hell happened–you may or may not ask—that nearly killed the music in Casey Black? You’ll just have to come to the show to find out.

Casey Black is now based in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Check him out or drop him a line at www.caseyblackmusic.com
