Cas Haley – More Music More Family
Release Date: November 13th
Cas Haley, the Texas-based singer-songwriter, released a new album in time for the holidays aptly titled More Music More Family. The album features guest appearances by Trevor Hall, Mike Love, Freewill and more with co-production coming courtesy of Tubby Love out of Kauai, Hawai’i. Haley endured an accident while skiing last year that sidelined his music career after his ability to sing had been compromised. While spending more than eight months doing physical therapy treatments to regain the use of his vocals, the concept for More Music More Family was brought to spirit as the new direction for his return to the studio and stage.
