Karan Casey
Chasing The Sun
Shanachie


By James Rodgers

Published September 27, 2005

From the moment Karan Casey sang her first note with the group Solas, her voice has been praised for its pure tone and tremolo reminiscent of Dolly Parton’s, while being individually distinct and instantly recognizable. Casey has the unique ability to make every song sound true and impassioned. She’s written six of the 13 tunes on Chasing The Sun, and in an effort to prove she’s maturing, the album is more political and worldly than in the past. The passing of her grandmother, the war and the sorry state of our environment all have affected young Casey and she wants us to know it.  Her songs are pleasant and thoughtful, but gain power from being sung by that beautiful voice. She also covers three songs by up-and-coming Irish singer-songwriter Barry Kerr. His political tunes would have fit in nicely with the folk songs of the ’60s, and that’s a good thing.  It’s these concise moments of world reflection and the light and dark of the traditional tunes that provide the true depth. Maturity will come naturally.
