What I really like doing is taking risks, musically.
— Casey Abrams
Whenever I'm feeling kind of down or something like that, or even good, the song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen is a go-to song of mine. It's like watching a movie, but with your ears.
If I shave, I don't have a chin anymore.
You know I want to sing for people, I want to jazz people up I want to make new music that they've never heard.
In my spare time I like watching TV, laying on the couch, just chillin'.
If my life was a song it would be 'Who Let The Dogs Out'.
I feel like there's no subject that can't be sung about. I wrote a song dedicated to people with inflammatory bowel disease, and then I wrote about shoes. And mangoes. Every rock should be turned.
I have musical ADD, so I like to switch things up.
I hope America sees I am a goofy guy andI'm kind a crazy, I hope they see that I am a musician aswell, that I have music all around my body - I'm just exfoliating music, and I just hope America sees that.
I had no idea I could make it this far. And the fact that they told me I made it this far and that America is going to vote for me, I freaked out.
If you're a good singer, you're going to make anything sound good.
I love listening to Radio Head's 'Everything in its Right Place' because it's all major chords, it makes you feel really good. It's soothing, it's got a beautiful voice, crazy textures. When I'm down I listen to that song and it really makes me feel good.
I like kissing people because it's funny.
I consider myself a bassist first.
There's got to be a backbone, there's got to be a skeleton to the whole way I perform, but you never want to hit the same note twice during a performance, I think. I think it's always got to be fresh so it doesn't bore me, and I always want to go out on edge.
I'm a car singer, in fact sometimes I pretend to take my dog out for a walk, and I'll just drive him around and start singin'.
I love making music, I love composing on my computer, just making crazy ethnic slack orchestral tracks, that's one of my fun things.
My favorite type of music to sing to would be rock and roll, Tenacious D, Led Zeppelin, some Queen - I love all of them. I love singing to them because they're all just great voices. I love listening to very obscure jazz.
