"The music is deeply atmospheric and descriptive. It tells a story and transports the listener to another plane. The EP features masterful instrumentation that transitions suddenly from moments of calm to whirling sections of chaos. The lyrics match these contrasts beautifully, riding between poeticism and tongue-in-cheek frankness. 'Balloons and Moons' is a stand out track, with a lilting lullaby quality and eerie beatific melody. 'Fall You in Love,' is... unsettling in the best way, with a myriad of instruments crashing in to join the creeping, curious cacophony of the song that eventually leads to the explosive chorus: 'Oh I'll fall you in love.' Listen to the banshee just once, and we guarantee, Case Watson will keep her promise and 'fall you in love' with her music."

"On her debut album the banshee, NYC art rock artist Case Watson delivers a mix of hard, bluesy burners and quiet pastoral pieces that aim to effect change. Utilizing a traditional rock band in addition to a string section, Watson’s album is a rollercoaster of emotional expression and sonic textures.
As an artist, Case Watson is the epitome of the modern female singer/songwriter. She draws from the traditions of folk, rock, blues, indie and classical to craft a sound that is authentically acoustic in its elements but mystical and surreal in sum. The consciousness of its lyrical perspective fits this time and place when political discourse and a surplus of solutions to unavoidable problems dominate society.
​With
the banshee, Case Watson ascends to the league of contemporaries like Lucy Dacus and Jesca Hoop, who are pushing the sound and messaging of rock music in this difficult time."

"In her latest single, 'Hollow Tree,' the ethereal art-pop artist Case Watson well and truly came into her alchemic stride. With cinematic electronic obscurity nestled against folkish mysticism and a few caustically volatile elements thrown in for good measure, Hollow Tree moves beyond an aural experience. Its arcane air sets your imagination alight and tears you away from realism in the process.
If you could imagine what it would sound like if Emilie Autumn opted for nuance... you will get a good idea of the phantasmal bliss found in this darkly electrifying lyrical fairy-tale. We’re officially obsessed."


Official selection, "Fine" music video

To quote Dwight Shrute, want me to give you the chills? 
Case Watson is an NYC-based solo artist, vocalist, songwriter,  and producer.  Originally from Birmingham, AL, Watson draws from art rock, folk, art pop, jazz, classical, and other influences to create a unique, trademark sound of spooky sensuality. Her lyrics, flowing from bewitching imagery to raw, cheeky wit, aim to comfort the disturbed during these hairy times. She has released one EP, multiple singles, and a music video -- with more on the way.

Watson recently launched a new business offering commissioned songs, scores, serenades, and jingles, as well as music career consultation for young musicians seeking organization and direction.

Catch Case and her band are in New York this summer (dates below), and follow her on social media, Spotify, and Patreon for updates!

"I was looking for a last minute addition for my Valentine’s Day Gifts, and a friend suggested Case Watson’s musical serenades. I expected a simple silly song but what I received was mind blowing. Not only did Case take the time to implement the very specific requests I asked for in my serenade, she did RESEARCH about my request to make the song even more profound, hilarious, and honestly a bop. Case’s musical composition skills and exquisite harmonies are only matched by her beautiful voice. If you’re looking for something more silly, Case’s malleable voice is able to transform from beautifully whimsical to hilariously comical and exaggerated. I cannot recommend this talented person enough. I can’t stop listening to the serenade she made for my partner and neither can he! Thanks, Case!"

"I commissioned a Valentine's Day serenade for my boyfriend, and the result was absolutely fantastic. So f***ing good. He's gonna love it so much. Case is amazing. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!"

“I commissioned a song from Case to give to my boyfriend for Christmas and she DELIVERED! She is incredible singer-songwriter and managed to capture every detail of our story perfectly through her lyrics, vocals, and incredible guitar playing. It was the perfect, romantic gift - we both cried (in the best way) and the song is constantly stuck in my head. If you’re looking to do something special for your partner, honor a loved one, or for a special occasion, I highly recommend having Case tell your story.”

JON S.

"Case wrote a serenade that was catchy and clever. She included details and motifs from stories I told her of my romance. My girlfriend loved it and it set the mood on Valentines Day."
