He began playing piano at the age of five. This incredibly early start was a sure sign of innate talent and commitment to his craft.
By age 15, Casara was developing his musical …

It was about a year ago when I first heard and met James Bay in Los Angeles. His first EP, “The Dark of The Morning” really drew me to him.
