THE CHEEKSTERS

The Cheeksters were formed in 1990 soon after Mark and Shannon met by chance on a train in London, England. Mark hails from the UK, while Shannon was born and raised in Tennessee.

They started performing music together as a duo with Mark on guitar and vocals and Shannon playing bass guitar. They soon released their debut album “Stranger Things Have Happened” in 1992, followed by “Hey, What’s Your Style ?” in 1994.

The couple relocated to Nashville in 1996 and began working with producer Brent Little at his all-analog studio where they have recorded four critically acclaimed albums: “Skating On The Cusp” (1999) “Nineteen Sixty-Five” (2005) “Movers and Shakers” (2007) “The Golden Birds” (2011).

Over the years The Cheeksters have performed extensively in the SouthEast US, as well as showcasing their talents in NYC and London. The Cheeksters combine the best of what made music great in the 1960’s and 70’s with a winning fresh pop approach that delights audiences. In the studio the group has produced six albums of timeless, tuneful, terrific pop that has real staying power.

Onstage the versatile five-piece band turns out its catchy pop confections, bringing to mind a swirling variety of influences including Memphis soul and Carnaby Street pop. They somehow manage to channel Burt Bacharach/Hal David, Dusty Springfield’s diva soul, T-Rex’s manic boogie and the pomp of David Bowie often in the same song without sounding derivative.

The current line-up has performed together for the past ten years and is made up of Mark Casson (vocals, guitar, piano, bass), Shannon Hines Casson (vocals, bass guitar, piano), Jay Moye (piano, guitar), Je Widenhouse (trumpet) and Mike Baker (drums).
