Watch & Listen
Writing a great song is not all that different from mixing a stiff drink, a symmetry that Casey Cavanagh understands well. Cavanagh, who calls Virginia home, approaches music with a deep respect for tradition, but he isn’t afraid to stir things up. His latest project, ‘Old Souls,’ distills formative memories of his twenties into four distinct tracks. It’s the work of a craftsman and a storyteller — and a tribute to the people and places who’ve made him the man he is today.
To celebrate the release of 'Old Souls,' Casey will be joined by a full band of some of his closest collaborators: John Giardiniere, Sam Gillett and Jeff Pober.
Justin Trawick and The Common Good
Justin Trawick and The Common Good’s debut record, “The Riverwash EP”,
exemplifies the raw emotional live sound Trawick and the band have cultivated over the
years playing in clubs and festivals up and down the East Coast.
consisting of acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, mandolin, and pedal steel, the band’s
live performance plays fast and loose with the “Americana” genre, performing heartfelt
ballads followed by raucous bluegrass melodies and even moments of hip hop verses.
Written by DC based songwriter Justin Trawick, “The Riverwash EP” introduces the
listener to Trawick’s unique brand storytelling with five original songs about love, loss,
longing, resilience, and time pulling heartstrings of listeners young and old.
(Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman) guest performs on guitar during “All the Places That
I’ve Been”, a song inspired by Trawick’s ninety-seven year old grandmother and her
stories of the World War II generation.
Finally, the album closes with the band’s unique
take on “Wonderwall” by Oasis, a track sure to trick the audience into thinking they’re
listening to another Trawick original.
Justin Trawick has been performing in the Washington DC area and along the East
Coast since 2006, citing musical influences like Bob Schneider, The Tallest Man on
Earth, G. Love, Old Crow Medicine Show, and David Gray.
In June of 2015, Trawick
released his first single, “Goodbye”, under the band name "Justin Trawick and the
Common Good”; written about the search for direction and belonging in a world that
constantly feels one step ahead of you.
Trawick has performed for TedxEast in NYC
at the City Winery, TedxPennsylvaniaAvenue in DC at the Newseum, and has opened
for over 30 national acts including Suzanne Vega, Wyclef Jean, Brett Dennen, Blues
Traveler, Enter The Haggis, Bob Schneider, and Edwin McCain, and shared bills with Dr.
Dogg and The Avett Brothers.
In February of 2014, Trawick won “Song of the Year” at
the Washington Area Music Awards for his song “All the Places That I’ve Been," which
can be downloaded on iTunes as a single along with his five other solo records and
