As always, I was blown away by the variety and quality of the performances at Cropredy. But, as the programme will show, it's more than just the music - Cropredy has a wonderfully friendly atmosphere."

September 14, 2010CAS HALEY'S CONNECTION OUT NOW
"The newest Easy Star release, Cas Haley's CONNECTION, is out today! Please support Cas and Easy Star by picking up a copy at your local record store, online, in our webstore or anywhere else.
Here's a message Cas sent directly to his fans today:
I just wanted to shoot a quick email out to let you know that my new album, "Connection" comes out today on iTunes, online, and in stores. I hope that you'll decide to give it a listen. I'm so proud of the songs that are on it, and I can't wait for you to hear them.
Early sales in an album release helps an artist to really spread the word about their music, and I'd be so grateful if you would buy the album or a few songs when you have a free moment, and please tell your friends! The social network mentions are not going unnoticed. I see them, and I appreciate them more than you know. The love and support that you have shown to myself and my family over the past few years is so amazing, and I truly appreciate it.
Oh, and feel free to rate the album and comment! I read everything that you guys say, and I love hearing your thoughts.
Again, thank you all for your support. I am so touched by it. It's a beautiful thing.
Love and respect,
So you heard the man, go pick up the record! Get it at iTunes or Amazon or the Easy Star webstore or at your local record store (if you are lucky enough to still have one where you live). " More info »
