Describe yourself in 3 words?
We’re sure you have been asked this million times but how did you get in the industry?
I’ve been singing my whole life. I did my first musical production at 6 years old, in 2018 I started posting covers on Instagram and began releasing my own music in 2019.
Describe your sound in 3 words?
Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?
Justin Bieber is my greatest influence. I have been singing my entire life! I write music to help others feel the way I felt when Justin released his “Purpose” album.
Do you play any instrument?
I play the piano and I’m currently learning the guitar.
Do you ever get nervous?
All the time, just not when I’m singing!
Tell us about your new single “Jealous?”
Jealous is about the aftermath of jealousy and how it makes you feel!
What’s the story behind this song?
I wanted to write about jealousy because it is something everyone has dealt with. I like to write about things I experience that are relatable, with the hope that it helps other people.
And do you have news on your upcoming EP?
I’m finally back in the studio, a after a long 6 months! I’m working hard to finish it up so I can finally share it with everyone!
Did you had plans/concerts planned and cancelled because of COVID? If so have you done any online concerts or interaction with your fans?
Yes! I had so many shows planned that were cancelled, or as I prefer to say, “postponed”..it helps me cope with it 🙂 I miss performing live so much! I just did a live/virtual show for iHeart Radio’s Dunkin’ Latte Lounge, and I have a couple of other virtual shows coming soon!
Which project is still on your bucket list?
To collab with JUSTIN BIEBER!!
What is fun and rewarding about what you do? And what’s not?
Honestly, I love everything about what I am doing! Being able to connect with fans all over the world, and sharing my music is literally my dream. There isn’t anything I don’t love about what I’m doing!
What’s next for Casey Baer in the last months of 2020?
For the rest of 2020 I’m going to be in the studio as much as possible!
What is you favorite song? And why?
My favorite song is Purpose by Justin Bieber. I struggled with anxiety growing up, (still do) and when Justin released Purpose, my life changed! The message was so powerful it made me refocus all my energy into my music and helped me learn how to cope with my anxiety.
Any loves other than music?
Fashion! I absolutely love fashion and I just started a clothing line with my friend Skye called TORN UP! Everything is one of a kind. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Justin Bieber (I’m sure that surprised you)
Best advice ever given?
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together! It’s a quote by Marilyn Monroe. A very close friend sent it to me, and it is so true!
How’s a typical day in your life?
A typical day during quarantine looks a lot different than it used to. I was always on the go, and I really miss it! In the morning I have a simple skin care routine, then breakfast and take my dog for a walk . Then I check on my socials and streaming platforms and get started on my day. Some days are for creating music, some are for creating other content. I’ve been doing a lot of baking and now I’ve been painting and playing tennis. We have dinner as a family every night which has been amazing! I also make time to play the piano and I’ve been learning guitar too. I’m trying to stay as busy as possible!
Name one your strengths?
Idea of a perfect Sunday?

Waking up in the morning, being healthy mentally and physically, being with the ones I love, doing what I love!

How would you describe your fashion style?
What do you think of Social Media?
It’s a big part of my life and I have been able to connect and share my music with people all over the world, so for that I am grateful. It can definitely suck you in, if you don’t set boundaries for yourself. It’s also important not to compare yourself to other peoples careers or lives in general. So just being aware of that helps me use it and enjoy the benefits!
