Blake Shelton says of Casi Joy, "She has this electric energy when she's on stage and has these unique things that she can do vocally. She's an edgier version of a country artist. She's old school but has a youthful energy about her. There's no stopping Casi Joy."
With over 27 million views on Facebook and YouTube videos that garnered 12 million and 7 million views respectively, Joy has captured the attention of music fans who appreciate the way she melds traditional country and modern pop influences. A seasoned performer, her impressive social media presence eventually led to a highly-touted run on NBC's The Voice, where she instantly turned all four chairs and was singled out by Rolling Stone as having one of the top 10 blind auditions of all time - a testament to the hard work and dedication of someone who has been performing professionally since the age of five.
Joy's vibrant stage presence has led to sharing the stage with many notable country acts including Montgomery Gentry, Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Carly Pearce, Easton Corbin, Dustin Lynch, and LOCASH. Hailing from Kansas City before moving to Nashville, Casi has become a beloved hometown figure and was the featured performer recently at a major Kansas City Plaza event seen by 250,000 attendees and half a million television viewers. She has also been invited numerous times to sing the national anthem for the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals.
The fiery redhead is known for her melodic, personal songwriting and received an overwhelming response on social media to her self-penned single "I Do." As a followup, Casi released her highly anticipated, sophomore EP "The Bright Side" May 18th, which debuted at #19 on the iTunes Country Album Charts.
Joy is an advocate for children and animals and has used her musical talent to do extensive charity work for the Craig Morgan Foundation for foster children, Autism Speaks, Pediatric Cancer Research, Children's Mercy, Noah's Bandage Project, Big Slick KC, Animal Justice League of America, Northland Animal Welfare, American Cancer Society, and Suicide Prevention. She also spent many years teaching students and special-needs children voice, piano and guitar.
