Casper Adrien is a musician based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Since entering the Dutch music scene in 2010 with the release of his solo debut-EP “To Save a Fish from Drowning”, he has been active in numerous musical projects. In 2012 he participated in the acclaimed Lorrainville project, singing, writing and performing together with artists like Anneke van Gierbergen and Blof. Inspired by his Lorrainville-experiences, he initiated the Knalland project: a musical collaboration project focusing on artists based in the Kanaleneiland district of Utrecht. Knalland released its debut-album in May 2013, and has gained much attention and praise throughout the Netherlands ever since. Besides working as a solo-musician Casper has also been a founding-member of indie-folk band Oh, Brave Wide Eyes, which released their debut-EP “The Tascam Recordings” in 2012.
Meet Me Cassius
The last few weeks have been a blast. I feel really privileged to be a part of Lorrainville and it's awesome crew. Releasing our second album Desire The Reckless with gigs at Bitterzoet, Tivoli de Helling, Hedon and DWDD made me rediscover what I find most important in life. To share passion and inspire one another to strive, create and love.
Go check out the album. I sing a couple of tracks and wrote (the titletrack) Desire The Reckless and The News <3
Last few months I've been working on the new Knalland project called Volhard. Knalland's second album. All songs are written in honor of the 4th and 5th of May, the days on which the Netherlands commemorate those who died in war and subsequently celebrate the country's freedom. Volhard is a play on words; it comes from the Dutch word for perseverance but also implicates. Besides organizing I wrote two songs for. Don't tell anyone but you can download the entire album for free right here!
I'd like to welcome everybody to my new and improved website. Special thanks to Marcin and Milou for creating it for me. Take a look at their website for more inspiring work. For me it symbolizes the start of my new solo 'aspirations'. 2014 will be a very important musical year for me. Besides my solo work I will continue to work on my other projects as well. Big plans start with the first steps. My bandcamp player shows a brand new track called Sparrows. Meet Me Cassius will be in charge of my bookings. First on the bill are a couple of shows in France and Estonia. Love Casper
