Casey Ryder & The Swingin Bachelors

since circa 1998
Casey Ryder is a busy guy. He performs, composes, records, tours and
teaches, and has been a full-time working musician since 1986.
Originally a bassist, he continues to perform with many varied artists
on electric and acoustic bass. A growing interest in songwriting
naturally led him to explore voice, guitar and lap steel guitar in the
early '90's. Wanting to play the roots Americana that he always loved,
he met a group of like-minded musicians in 1998 and formed The Swingin'
Bachelors. This group spotlighted his many talents and it was perfect
timing as the Swing revival was just about to bloom. Winners of the
1999 Q100 Rocktoria contest, the profile and international airplay of
the group rose rapidly. Later that year, the band released it's only
cd, "Occasional Fidelity." The artistic focus of the group was to play
unique original and cover songs informed by swing, blues, jazz,
rockabilly, rock & roll, country and latin. Although his musical lens
has widened over the years, the credo of Casey Ryder remains the same:
fun, improvisational, well-played music good for dancing, drinking or
just plain ol' listening!
