With depth, experience, and her guitar in hand, Steph Casey has released her second studio album – The Seats In My Car.
Arriving six years after her debut album Whisper & Holler, which received glowing international reviews and charted in the top five of the NZIM charts, the new album reveals the departure Steph has made from the classic singer-songwriter style of her debut.
Although The Seats In My Car sits broadly within the indie-folk/alt-country stable that characterised Steph’s debut offering, the new songs are heavier on the gritty guitars, and the vocal performances are more self-assured.
On The Seats In My Car Steph sings, plays acoustic guitar, and is backed by a stellar line-up of musicians, the core of which comprises the three principal members of indie-pop band Let’s Planet – Caroline Easther (The Chills, The Verlaines, Beat Rhythm Fashion) on drums, Alan Galloway (Let’s Planet, Galloway) on electric guitars and Murray Costello (The Mockers, the Wooden Box Band) on bass.
Steph is celebrating the release of The Seats In My Car with a NZ album release tour of intimate shows: 17 August – Lucky Bar + Kitchen, Whanganui 24 August – The Third Eye, Wellington 6 December – Le Café, Picton 7 December – Mussel Inn, Takaka Tickets available at Eventfinda
