Casey Abrams – More New York City Interviews

Casey Abrams continues his New York City media tour. After the jump, see more interviews from the Today Show and Good Day New York. I’ll post further updates in this space, so watch for it!

Poor Casey will forever be asked about BFF Haley Reinhart. If they aren’t an item, at the very least he has a big ole crush on her.

    Thanks MJ. Those NY Fox hosts are hilarious–so intense–LOL. Casey handles himself very well. I wonder if Haley will be asked as much about Casey as he is getting asked about her.

    Anyway–I really like Casey’s personality. He is humble–has a good sense of humor–and seems to have a good sense of himself.

    He’s got a very offbeat sense of humor, but I really like him. He’s a fantastic musician but think his voice comes second. I believe he’ll be successful and wouldn’t hesitate to go see him perform.

    What did Casey do before Idol? Did he perform locally? Did he play with a group and sing?

    Wow….dead zone over here. Hasn’t been much comments for any Casey thread lately, yet people are still babbling over Pia. At least his press tour seems better than Stefano’s, who only sang on Regis and Kelly? Anyway, his was a wasteland because of easter, so it’s nice Casey’s press tour is back on schedule.

    Either way, I thought Casey had a big enough fan base on this blog, so I’m surprised not more people are chatting here. Not much to say I guess…

    Casey is so down to earth and humble and a sweet guy. Very interesting and fun. I wish the best for him, and only the best :)

    I never thought Casey had a big fan base here on MJs. I only saw a few who liked him among all the comments. But, he does have over 100k on twitter-so maybe that means something.

    I think he is going to be on Ellen tomorrow.

    Here is a nice article that was in US mag. He even states that the judges were easy on him. Really nice kid.

    What did Casey do before Idol? Did he perform locally? Did he play with a group and sing?

    I think Casey played mainly with jazz groups from school– high school and college. I don’t think he did that much professionally. I believe he sat in at a few local jazz clubs. He just turned 20–so he probably hasn’t had time to do much else.

    From Casey’s US mag interview:

    Us: This season, the judges haven’t really pulled the Simon Cowell card and offered negative critiques. Did their feedback help or hurt you?
    CA: I’m really digging the new panel. Yes, sometimes they’re a little too nice. I actually think they were a little too nice to me. I’ve been off, I’ve been pitchy, and Randy’s been quiet through that. He didn’t say anything. Then they’ll pick on Haley sometimes. But the thing is, they have really big hearts and that’s why they’re a really good panel.

    Good. I’m glad that Casey was objective enough to recognize that he wasn’t called on a lot of flaws in his performances, and that Haley was being picked on for some of those same flaws. I respect for admitting that.

    Here is an short print interview with Crystal–where she says that Casey was her fave and that she thinks she jinxed him–LOL

    I think Casey does have a lot of fans but they just don’t post comments here at mj’s. Archie still has a big fan base and his fans don’t always comment here either. However, I do think that their fans do read their threads at mjs. I am a big fan of both of them. Casey is such a talented musician and I love his personality.

  • Dlynne

    I’m a fan. I think he has loads of talent and I’ll definitely be following his career.

    The interviews were fun! Thanks, MJ.

  • movin2thabeet

    Maybe Casey’s fans are a chill bunch.. I know I try to catch all his interviews and performances, but don’t always have a need to comment. I love the guy and how he’s navigating this Idol thing. I truly can’t wait till he’s out and about and creating his music, his way. I think he felt constrained by having to be just a singer, and ended up grunting as a reflex. He’s a musician, with his voice being one of many instruments of choice. I look forward to seeing him do his thing with all those instruments and likely a bunch of crazy ass musicians joining him. Should be a blast!

    I totally agree and also can’t wait to see what Casey does post idol

    Thanks for the vids agian MJ. I missed some of these interviews. Casey is my favorite this season and his cd will be the only one I buy post idol.

  • bean99

    Thanks, Mj. I finally got a chance to watch Casey on Regis & Kelly. It’s not going to be the same on idol now. :(
