29th May 2017








Released to Radio – Monday 29th May


Single Release - Friday June 2nd 




After the recent success of previous single ‘Just Like Magic’, Casey Barnes has once again joined forces with Michael Paynter and MSquared Productions for his latest highly anticipated new single ’The Way We Ride’ set for release on June 2nd. This gutsy high-octane track sees Casey ramping up the pace into overdrive delivering a song that is sure to get everyone on their feet.




I can’t remember ever being more excited about the release of a single than I am with ‘The Way We Ride’.  I really feel this single is a huge step forward for me after the recent success of ‘Just Like Magic’ and it’s been the perfect match teaming up again with both Michael Paynter and Michael Delorenzis from MSquared to produce the latest single.  It’s the perfect driving song so be sure to turn it up nice and loud!  Can’t wait to perform this one live too’.

Casey’s music has made an impact around the world. He’s had hits in Europe, written songs in America, appeared in a top-rating TV show in Australia, and played alongside many international stars.


Casey started his singing career in his home state of Tasmania, before relocating to the Gold Coast, which he now calls home. Casey’s songs are honest and heartfelt. The emotions are genuine. The Jet Trails single, Michelle, documents how Casey’s life changed when he met his wife. Casey wrote the song in Nashville with Aussie hit-maker Rick Price (Not A Day Goes By, Heaven Knows), who later posted this message: “Man, his eyes lit up when he talked about her and his little daughters – great to see a guy loving on his family like that.”


Writing with Rick Price has continued into 2014 with Casey’s brand new EP, recorded in Nashville, due for release in June. Current single and the title track off the EP ‘Flesh and Bone’ is an energetic country inspired song guaranteed to capture your attention. Produced by Price and mixed by Grammy Award winner Jason Lehning.


Australians got to know Casey’s story when he was a top 12 finalist in the final series of Australian Idol. But Casey already had a career well before appearing on the show, having released three albums, played alongside Bryan Adams (for A Day On The Green), Eskimo Joe and Vanessa Amorosi and had a number one hit in Europe, singing Marco Demark’s remake of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer.   


 A seasoned television performer, Casey has also performed numerous times on such shows as Sunrise, Mornings with Keri-Anne and The Circle.


 The most over-used word on Idol was “journey”. But it’s a fitting description of Casey Barnes’ musical life. He’s an artist who’s not afraid to take his chances and chase his dream. And despite the many achievements so far, you get the feeling that this journey has many highlights to come, as Casey continues to blaze a trail around the world.

Casey´s Musik hat bereits überall auf der Welt Spuren hinterlassen. Er hatte Hits in Europa, in Amerika Songs geschrieben, trat in den wichtigsten TV Shows Australien auf und er trat an der Seite Internationaler Stars auf.


Casey begann seine Gesangskarriere im Heimatstaat Tasmanien, bevor er an die Gold Küste -seine neue Heimat - zog. Caseys Lieder sind ehrlich und kommen von Herzen. Die Emotionen sind echt. Michelle, die Single Auskopplung von Jet Trails zeigt wie sich Casey Leben veränderte nachdem er seine Frau traf. Er schrieb das Lied zusammen mit dem australischen Hit-Lieferanten Rick Price (Not A Day Goes By, Heaven Knows) in Nashville. Rick sagte später: "Die Augen des Mannes leuchteten, wenn er über Frau und Tochter sprach- toll jemanden zu sehen, der seine Familie so sehr liebt."


Die Zusammenarbeit mit Rick Price setzte sich 2014 beim neuen Album von Casey fort, aufgenommen in Nashville und seit Juni auf dem Markt. Die aktuelle Single und Titel Song des Albums "Flesh and Bone" ist ein Energiegeladener Country Song, der mit Sicherheit Aufmerksamkeit erregen wird. Produziert von Price und von Grammy Award Sieger Jason Lehning abgemixt!


Australien kennt Caseys Geschichte seitdem er zu den 12 Finalisten von Australian Idol gehörte. Aber Casey hatte bereits vor der Show Karriere gemacht, er hatte drei Alben veröffentlicht, spielte mit Bryan Adams (für A Day On The Green), Eskimo Joe und Vanessa Amorosi und hatte einen Nummer 1 Hit in Europa mit dem Remake von Elton John´s Tiny Dancer.


Als erfahrener Fernsehmusiker trat Casey bereits in zahlreichen Shows wie Sunrise, Mornings with Keri-Anne und The Circle auf.


Das meiste benutze Wort in der Show Australian Idol war Reise. Aber es ist ein zutreffendes Wort für Casey Barnes musikalisches Leben. Er ist ein Künstler, der keine Angst hat seine Chance zu nutzen und seinen Traum zu leben. Und trotz der bisherigen zahlreichen Erfolge hat man das Gefühl, dass auf dieser Reise noch zahlreiche Höhepunkte warten während Casey seine Eroberung der musikalischen Welt fortsetzt.
