AXS Exclusive: Casey Buckley premieres new video 'Take Me There'
Directed by Lauren Desantis-Olssen

Newcomer Casey Buckley is releasing his debut album, Take the Good, on Oct. 16. We are premiering the first single from his debut, titled "Take Me There." Of the single, Casey states "I wrote this song on the trunk of my car about 5 hours from home one weekend in September 2013. It's the first song of the album and sets the intention of the record - one that spans my journey so far and bridges early songs with more recent creations. I've closed nearly every show with it since its writing - and I seem to find new meaning in it each time."

Buckley made his entrance with his debut single "Rise" for Hurricane Sandy Relief in 2012. He then followed with his debut self-titled EP in March 2013 and released Live at Evanston S.P.A.C.E. in June 2015. Take the Good is Casey Buckley's debut full-length and was recorded and mixed at Chris Badami's Portrait Recording Studios. It was mixed to tape and sent to New York City where Scott Hull completed the analog mastering. In Spring 2015, Casey Buckley toured nationally in support of Tony Lucca, just before embarking on Pat McGee's Album Release Tour (Summer 2015). Buckley most recently wrapped up a Southeastern U.S. tour in support of Howie Day.
