“Never leave yourself behind to the controlling mind.
You've got to free your soul and rise above it all. Just let go”
- Casting Shadows
Sometimes your future can seem so dark and foreboding. Life has a way of hammering you down and pushing the human spirit to the brink of emotional obsoletion and can make you feel so alone.
There are two choices. You can let the weight of the world crush you or let it inspire you to fight through the negativity; carving out your own solace. That’s where we find Casting Shadows - a spark of hope that lets you know you are not the only one feeling this way. Their songs let you you know that you ARE NOT alone.
Formed in 2016 by vocalist Matthew Barnes, guitarist Chris Ornberg, and bassist Daniel Jackson, the group got together and began creating their solace. They soon took to the stage to share their words with others. Through relentless live performances, they honed their songwriting and live performance skills while building a rabid fan base. Casting Shadows progressed, developing their unique sound with second guitarist, Adam Bice, and drummer, Nick Gallagher. Over the years, the band has become one of the East Coast’s most sought out live acts.
Their music shows the duality of human nature. Shadows can only be formed with light and their music portrays that opposition. At times, it delivers deep seething audio based anger, only to change course to make space for lush melodies and beautiful harmonies. This rich sound imprints on your mind and psyche with a strong connection and understanding. It dares you to try and inspires to push you to fight through the doldrums and stress of this day and age.
Their new single, “Let Go” is available now on all digital platforms.
