A lifetime professional performer, bassist Casey Sidwell blends a uniquely deep and supportive playing style with a hint of thunder and a pinch of nastiness. A versatile session player and bandmate, he has played with a wide variety of artists and bands including Zach Heckendorf, Megan Burtt, Eric Roberson, Anthony David, Selina Albright, Phonte, Bahamadia, Phat Kat, Covenhoven, the Fray, and many others. A recent transplant to Los Angeles, Sidwell is currently the bassist for Color Red recording artist Dragondeer as well as a producer, beat maker, and DJ.
Sidwell is also an active music educator, teaching at DIME Denver / Metro State University prior to his arrival at California College of Music. In addition to practicing the art of music, he is also an engaging host and broadcaster who headlined his own radio show, "Jazz Odyssey," on KUVO 89.3 FM in Denver from 2013-2016.
