DAILY Sports  December 1, 2012, by Alex Dunlap
"...I met Casey McPherson in 2004 when we were both very different people than we are in 2012. Casey was blessed with the gift of music, and I was blessed with the love of it. We became friends as my old band toured with his old band Endochine frequently..."

Alpha Rev
Music Review  September 27, 2013, by Michael Toland
"...Unplugged from corporate resources after a sojourn with the majors, Casey McPherson keeps his vision of widescreen Americana intact on Alpha Rev's third album Bloom. Sounding as if they were recorded on a Hollywood soundstage, "Highways" and the Civil War-themed "Lexington" manage the difficult trick of sounding lush and spare at the same time, evoking the wide vistas and dawn-kissed horizons in McPherson's imagination..."

If John Lennon had attended this weekend's ACL Fest blowout he might have screamed, "I've got blisters on my feet!"
Music Column  September 26, 2003, by Christopher Gray
"...Ray Benson acted as emcee for the Man in Black homage, bringing out Tift Merritt, the Drive-by Truckers, North Mississippi Allstars, and the Old 97's for a string of Cash favorites including "I Still Miss Someone," "Big River," and "Ring of Fire." The by-now steady drizzle couldn't douse the Truckers' Dixie fire at the Heineken stage, which burned even brighter later that night at the Mercury -- whoops, the Parish -- as the hard-rocking quintet successfully raised enough money to get back to Georgia. Over at Bright Eyes, as Omaha savant Conor Oberst revealed himself to be the new Gram Parsons (with Beth Orton as Emmylou Harris), Endochine addition Johnny Goudie said playing with Steely Dan/Doobie Brothers guitarist/missile designer/LAPD forensics expert Jeff "Skunk" Baxter was "like having a narc onstage." The local alt-rockers also vowed to "keep fighting the war on VD" to Z102's Chris Mosser; handed a copy of their new disc, Day Two, to filmmaker Cameron Crowe; and didn't look stoned at all during Goudie and frontman Casey McPherson's on-air interview with News 8's Langer..."

Alpha Rev
Music Review  April 30, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...At New Morning's best, lead single "New Morning" distills Coldplay and the catchy "Face Down" dials in the Police. Former Endochine frontman Casey McPherson has an impeccable range, and the arrangements are more cohesive than 2007's The Greatest Thing I've Ever Learned, but the lyrical content is generic drivel of the Hoobastank variety, painfully apparent in the piano ballad "Colder Months," overwrought "Get Out," and "Phoenix Burn." In other words, Alpha Rev is going platinum...."

Music Review  April 11, 2008, by Austin Powell

Breece Is Back
Breece D'J Pancake committed suicide in 1979 at the age of 26, and his Stories -- which Little, Brown has reprinted -- shows that he "cut short a literary career which had suggested a greatness that can now only be guessed at."
Books Story  July 26, 2002, by Dominic Luxford
"...But if you've yet to come across his work, it's likely because The Stories of Breece D'J Pancake had been out of print from 1983 until earlier this month, when Little, Brown reissued the collection ($13.95). The new edition is essentially the same as that of the original -- retaining all 12 stories, James Alan McPherson's foreword, and John Casey's afterword -- but with the addition of a second afterword by Andre Dubus III..."
