Casey Neill and the Norway Rats
WORDS ON CASEY NEIL: "This band can muster some fearful energy in concert" - The Oregonian
"Soul searing songs" UTNE READER

Casey Neill & the Norway Rats fuse modern rock with punk, Americana, and Celtic styles. The Norway Rats are an assemblage of Portland's finest musos whose shows alternate between desolate ballads and raucous rave-ups (see individual bios below). With a raspy voice, well crafted songs and a crack band, Casey Neill has carved out a widespread fan-base throughout the US, Canada, Japan, and Britain . A new Casey Neill CD "Brooklyn Bridge" was released May 1st 2007 on the indie label In Music We Trust.

"These are songs with stories well told. This is what it's all about" --- STEVE EARLE

Casey cut his teeth in the underground music community of the Pacific Northwest. Maintaining an international touring and recording career, his songs have garnered widespread praise from radio and critics, as well as musical luminaries Jello Biafra, Amy Ray, Pete Seeger, and Steve Earle. Casey has played stages such as New York's Town Hall, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, and Glasgows Celtic Connections Festival.

"A masterful songwriter" Punk Planet
Back in Portland's thriving music world, Casey formed the Norway Rats with many longtime musical friends. He also joined a Pogues tribute act KMRIA which features past and present members of the Decemberists, Eels, the Minus 5 and others. The Portland based label In Music We Trust signed on to release Brooklyn Bridge in May 2007.

Brooklyn Bridge includes the sessions recorded by Johnny Cunningham and features over 25 musicians. The players include the New York incarnation of Casey's band, his acoustic Trio from the 90s, many of the current Norway Rats, and guests Chris Funk and Jenny Conlee of the Decemberists, songwriters John Wesley Harding and Erin McKeown, guitarist Eric Ambel of Steve Earle and the Dukes, and more. The result is a 12 song collection of anthemic rock, punk attitude, desolate ballads, and Poguesy punk roarers.
