Future Thieves – Get Up


Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Nashville’s Future Thieves. “Get Up” is the new single from their forthcoming EP Emotional Cost released by ONErpm.

“Lyrically, it touches on what we’ve been going through this year. We lost the founding drummer of the band and our producer/writing partner Alex was deported back to Canada with no notice, both in quick succession,” Austin McCool said of the track. “‘Get Up’ just tells you to keep your head on straight and keep pushing through…”

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
