Atlanta's
Casey J


Fill Me Up

  Over the course of a few months, a quiet Atlanta elementary school teacher named Casey J, who just happens to sing on the side, has graduated from the classroom to the Top Ten of three different Billboard Magazine sales or airplay charts with her powerful debut radio single “Fill Me Up” (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records). The uplifting praise and worship anthem anchors the 29-year old vocalist’s CD “The Truth” (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records) that hits stores and online platforms everywhere on April 21, 2016.

  This isn’t Casey J’s first time on the charts though. She first surfaced as one quarter of the gospel girl group 4LOVE that was featured on The Brown Boyz’ Top 30 hit “Better Dayz” in the spring of 2012. They also made some noise with the concept music video for their bouncy radio tune “Praise.”
 
Praise has been an essential part of Casey J’s life from the start. Both her mother and grandmother Dorothy Mae sang in the gospel choir at Lily Hill Baptist Church in Atlanta and is also on Casey's new album.
  “Singing is part of who I am,” says Casey J. “I used to think it was the normal way of life because that’s all I saw my grandmother and mother do. I grew up thinking that singing in the church choir is what all kids did because it was my way of life.”

  Casey J Hobbs is a self-confessed Flower Child and attributes her creativity to her father who passed away when she was five years old.
  “He was a carpenter by trade, very smart and creative,” she remembers.”
  At the age of 12, she joined the Atlanta Young Singers of Callanwolde and sang with them until she enrolled at the University of Georgia. After college, she began teaching and sang with 4Love before signing with Marquis Boone’s management company and launching her solo career last year with the radio smash “Fill Me Up” that has spent 7 weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart and #1 on its Hot Gospel Songs chart for 3 weeks.
  The current chart still has her at #2.

  “Fill Me Up" is a flashback of the true worship experience I remember having during church in my grandmother’s basement” says Casey J.

  After years of few women on the gospel charts, there are now a handful of ladies making some noise such as Tamela Mann and two other Atlantans, Tasha Cobbs and Jamie Grace and now Casey J, who is also a worship leader is being added to the mix.

  The single's success preceded the release of the album by several weeks. The 12-song set of songs was recorded live during a standing room only concert this past January at the Fresh Start Church in Duluth, Georgia where Casey J serves as the Sunday morning worship leader.

  The soul-stirring album is like an earthy, organic worship service led by neo-soul icon India Arie and Israel Houghton who fuses Pop and Soul into his own recordings.
  “When I grow up, I want to be like Chrisette Michelle or India Arie,” she chuckles. “Although, they are not gospel artists, they have a similar style as me. People and worship are my heart. I want the environment of my performances to be about the worship and not so much about me personally or my artistic persona. I admire Israel Houghton because his music is for everybody.” 

  The praise and worship set was produced by keyboardist/guitarist Chris Carter (who produced “Fill Me Up”) and Korey Bowie who’s collaborated with artists ranging from Angie Stone to Cece Winans.
  Casey J’s music director Rick Watford, who’s played guitar on recording sessions for artists as diverse as Dorothy Norwood and R&B crooner Will Downing, supervised the rock flavored band.

  Singer Jason Nelson, known for his Top Ten hits such as “Shifting the Atmosphere,” and “Nothing Without You” has a duet with Casey J on one of the tracks, the summer groove, "Have Your Way."
  See a feature we did on Nelson in our last issue. (Click Here).

    Casey J’s 84-year young grandmother Dorothy Mae Choates joins her for the hymn “No, Not One.”
 
The songs range from festive, upbeat mantras such as “Let It Be Known” and “I’m Yours” to deeply personal ballads such as “Journal.”

  “The sound of “Fill Me Up” doesn’t have a solely traditional church sound- it’s worship in its purest form” says Casey J. I love that “Fill Me Up” makes listeners feel like they are in a personal worship experience… it captures the authenticity of worship… its different” explains Casey J.

  Casey J takes on a non- traditional approach to her style and considers herself a “flower child who loves to express my creativity.”
  “Although I grew up in a very spiritual home in a very churchy church, I’m not a super churchy person. I like singing in the trees, I like piercings, tattoos, head wraps and fresh foods from the earth,” explains the free spirited artist.

  This young lady was born to lead people into worship. Her soulful, yet prophetic voice captures and expresses the heart of God. She has the ability and gift to command atmospheres and take people into a place with God they may have never been before. Casey J desires to create music that offers accessible worship to a very awesome and accessible God.
  "My heart is most full when I see God's people respond to who He is through worship," she explains.

  On her new album's title cut, the singer calls God the Truth and the Light but her fresh sound is bringing Truth and Light to a new generation of gospel listeners.
