Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris.
Opener Case Shea: "Casey's stage persona is equal parts James Brown, Elvis Presley, and Bono...but then comes the surprise, etched in cursive on the head of a pin. Listen closely, and the songs are beautiful, heartfelt, and wrenching." - MTV News
Following the release of one self-produced home-recorded album, and the mellow full-band follow-up, Love Is Here To Stay, Shea's third full-length effort, In Your Head, is a deliberately cleaner, harder edged version of what his fans have come to expect: irresistible hooks, airtight melodies, and masterfully crafted, heartfelt lyrics. In Your Head is the result of a year dedicated to honing a cohesive, genuine rock n' roll sound, and the final product is a mix of classic and modern rock calling to mind The Beatles, Kings of Leon, and Tom Petty. A self-proclaimed explorer of genres, he effortlessly moves through time periods and styles, all the while staying true to his own unique songwriting voice.
Having fronted numerous rock bands in Nashville and Tallahassee, Shea has established himself as a New York staple, both as a solo act and frontman of his five-piece rock outfit. A gifted performer with undeniable charm, he is known for engaging his audience and filling the stage with a charismatic performance that knows no boundaries. He is at once quirky and heart wrenching, and the result is a rare treat that is both musically gratifying and raucously entertaining.
