Worlds collide, and alchemy ensues.

Inside the music of Keshi, ethereal melodies and lo-fi beats entwine with handcrafted instrumentation and understated guitar wizardry, emitting modern transmissions by way of a traditional beacon. This bold blend of R&B, hip-hop, and pop remains a signature of the Houston singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist born Casey Luong. Tallying over 40 million cumulative streams before inking a deal with Island Records, he uncovers bits of himself in each and every song.

"Keshi is literally the most undiluted parts of my being that come out," he exclaims. "I'm not copying anything. Instead, I'm fleshing out a little spot for myself. It explores sultry R&B crooning, but there's also a level of old school songwriting and melodic sensibility I learned from playing so much guitar. It all speaks to who I am."

At 12-years-old, Casey initially decided to pick up the instrument. His grandfather possessed a "fat classical guitar" and a music book in Vietnamese. From there, he taught himself how to play and developed a deep passion for music, "sitting in front of the computer for hours on end every day and soaking it all up." His influences grew from All Time Low and John Mayer to Frank Ocean, The 1975, Drake, and Bryson Tiller as he learned production on GarageBand throughout high school.
