Episode 039: Casey Crescenzo (The Dear Hunter)
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Casey Crescenzo for 11 years, back when he was playing in The Receiving End of Sirens. Since then, he’s gone on to become one of the most prolific and praiseworthy songwriters in the scene as frontman and brain trust of The Dear Hunter. In addition to releasing four of the band’s six-part Acts series, Casey has penned seven EPs worth of material based on the color spectrum, composed a symphony, and much more.
To celebrate the release of The Dear Hunter’s new album, Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise, I caught up with Casey to chat about hitting creative roadblocks, the uncharacteristic music path he almost took and how someone who can’t read music goes about writing a symphony. Thanks for listening!
