U•BASS Artist - Casey Abrams

Casey Abrams spent much of his childhood in Idyllwild, California. Always drawn to music, he got his start on the piano before falling in love with bass. At 13, Casey began a fruitful mentorship with professional bassist Hawkins, and was accepted at the acclaimed jazz program to study with Hawkins at Idyllwild Arts Academy for his high school years. Besides studying his beloved double bass, he also became adept at keyboard, electric bass, guitar, drums, accordion, sitar and again diving into a diverse selection of world instruments.

Casey also composed, orchestrated and arranged film scores and helped create original musical films during his four years at Idyllwild Arts. 

Casey first caught the attention of the masses with his appearance in the tenth season of American Idol in 2011. Occasionally clad with his upright bass and always bringing a dynamic vocal performance and presence, Casey made a lasting impression on the judges and the audience. Even while facing acute complications from ulcerative colitis during the filming of Idol, Casey worked his way up the competition before leaving in sixth place. 

In years since Idol, Casey has composed and released three full length jazz albums, a couple of EPs, a live album and numerous singles and collaborative releases. He’s toured worldwide as  frontman, and has spent time touring internationally as part of the renowned collective, Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox. He has an engaging presence on Social Media - often posting heartwarming and well-executed collaborations with an array of talented friends.
