Get To Know The Guest Host Cason Cooley:
IN THE STUDIO, it is not unlikely you will find Cason Cooley experimenting with new sounds, pushing back on boundaries to achieve new levels of creativity. A dynamic combination of producer, engineer, musician, composer, and songwriter, Cooley’s love for music began at young age. Growing up in Wichita, KS, Cooley often traveled across the country with his parents who were a part of the Grammy award winning Southern Gospel group, The Cathedral Quartet. Cooley took the plunge to pursue music on his own in 1997 and moved to Nashville, TN where he soon became a member of the Normals.In 2002, the group disbanded and Cooley began to focus his attention on songwriting and production.
In the past ten years, Cooley has written and produced artists such as Ingrid Michaelson, including her singles "Girls Chase Boys" and "Hell No," American Authors newest single "Deep Water," Katie Herzig, Ben Rector, David Archuletta and more. His creativity continues to influence and challenge the way music is made.
