John Moreland – East October


Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Tulsa singer, songwriter John Moreland. “East October” is the lead single and first preview of Moreland’s forthcoming record LP5, out Feb. 7, 2020. Produced by Matt Pence and recorded at The Echo Lab in Denton, Texas, the album marks Moreland’s transition from his typical primary producer role.

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.
