Artist Biography by

Casey Elston's career as a music writer took a 25-year detour through the world of radio and publishing. He was a news reporter and anchor for radio stations in San Francisco and Sacramento, with regular beats that included the California legislature and Major League Baseball. For the past 15 years he has worked in publishing, primarily as the editor of business periodicals. He was the editor in chief of a national magazine that covered the golf management industry. He now works as a freelance writer based in Petaluma, California, and is beginning to recapture the excitement he once had reporting for local newspapers about Jeff Beck, B.B. King, John Mayall and other notable musicians.
