Casey Meehan has worn many hats in the Chicago music scene: musician, producer, label owner, studio manager, event coordinator, website designer, marketer, concert promoter, task master, cheerleader, and baby sitter. But he’s most well-known for his Chicago Mixtape project. By combining his knowledge of online marketing and passion for music, he’s been able to connect Chicago musicians to listeners all over the world.
While Chicago Mixtape continues to be a main focus, he’s currently recording a new album with his band Jitney, helping to run a studio founded by the late Jay Bennett of Wilco, working with young artists like Emma Jayne to find their voice and teaching his auto mechanic friends how to grow their businesses by using some of the same tactics that have garnered global visibility for the Chicago Mixtape.
When he’s not mixing, recording or promoting, he’s struggling to learn how to paint in the style of Asian ink wash.
