Seventeen year old rock singer-songwriter Casey Bishop has shared the third single from her forthcoming debut self-titled EP. “Blurry Vision” follows the energetic “Don’t Talk!” and pop-rock tune “Bad Dream,”.

“‘Blurry Vision’ is about missing being younger. Missing the excitement you used to get from the little things. When I was writing this song I was in a phase of my life where I just felt numb. I wasn’t sad or unhappy, it was just that nothing excited me. I didn’t feel like myself and it was causing me to reminisce and worry, wondering if I was going to feel that way forever,” the American Idol Season 19 Top 4 finalist shares.

Produced by Chris Greatti (Yungblud, Poppy), the singer’s debut EP is out September 28 via 19 Recordings/BMG. On the EP, Casey infuses punk energy and rock ambition with alt-pop melodies. Over the course of six tracks, she delivers a full range of emotions with her vulnerable and relatable lyrics.

Hailing from Fort Myers, Florida, Casey Bishop became a fan-favorite contestant while competing on Season 19 of ABC’s American Idol. Her impressive vocal range earned her a unanimous “yes” from the season’s judges – Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry – and ultimately took her to the Top 4 at just 16-years-old.

Shortly after her season of American Idol wrapped, the powerhouse singer signed with 19 Recordings/BMG and began songwriting sessions out in Los Angeles with Greatti.

Since then, she has performed duets with country megastar Luke Bryan and Brandon Boyd (Incubus) and opened for the likes of John Fogerty, and Foreigner. Casey’s musical influences range from artists like Mötley Crüe to Fleetwood Mac to Billie Eilish and features powerhouse vocals and emotionally honest lyrics.

At the end of 2021, Casey wrote a message to her fans: “Next year is going to be just as great and i’m SOOO excited for you guys to hear the new music,” Casey wrote enthusiastically. “Working on this upcoming project has been so insanely fun. I discover something new about myself during every song and everyone involved in the music is just so unbelievably talented.”
