Casey Abrams’ story is that of a born natural, but it’s also the story of a person who studied diligently and worked extremely hard, striving toward his dream of a life in music. He was born in Austin, Texas to professionally accomplished, extraordinarily creative parents. Casey’s mother, Pamela Pierce, a screenwriter and teacher, also plays piano and sings. His father, Ira Abrams currently teaches at Idyllwild Arts Academy. The walls of Casey’s childhood home resonated with, “the music of the 1950s and ‘60s,” he states. Even then, he was “hearing those blues riffs and little things that make a song what it is.”

A Special Thank You

Thank You - Logo Font

 

To everyone from Close the Box and Nature By Numbers,

Thank you so much for coming out and performing at Fender® Center on Saturday. All of you were amazing and your performance was spectacular. We are so lucky here at Kids Rock Free® to be able to work with so many wonderfully talented performers.

But more than that, we are so lucky to work with performers who care.

Because of you, the Kids Rock Free education program continues on. Here at KRF, it is our ongoing mission to fill our community not only with music education, but with passion for the arts.

This past week, Executive Director Pamela Hogan spoke on behalf of the National Endowment for the Arts to defend them from another threat to their budget, and to share how necessary and vital programs like Kids Rock Free are throughout the country.

Though there continue to be detractors, KRF thanks you for endeavoring with us to bridge the gap between kids, knowledge, and the vitality that passion brings. Passion for music is passion for life. Thank you for striving with us.
