“I had such an amazing time on tour with James Morrison earlier this year. I cannot wait to get back out there and share my music with all the amazing fans both old and (hopefully) new!” explained McQuillen. “Also having the opportunity to do a few solo shows AND bring the ‘You Matter’ Tour back to Europe before culminating in my hometown of Boston is a dream come true.”
The tour will include songs from McQuillen’s latest album, “Skinny,” which includes the hit single, In & Out. Performed as a duet with Jon McLaughlin, the track has been featured on major playlists, and has been spotlighted by the likes of Apple Music and Amazon Music, as well featured on MTV and CMT, and Sirius XM’s The Pulse. The album dropped in April of this year and has earned acclaim from critics and fans alike for its courageous tackling of body positivity issues. Fans can expect to hear other hits, as well, such as the first single released from the album, Skinny, which is deeply personal for Casey as it relates to her own struggles with self-image.
Casey McQuillen first came to the public’s attention as a contestant on Season 13 of “American Idol.” As a touring artist, Casey has headlined sold out shows in New York and Boston, and performed alongside such incredible acts such as James Morrison, Eric Hutchinson, and David Ryan Harris. As a recognized spokesperson for bullying prevention, Casey founded the “You Matter” tour, which she’s performed at over one hundred middle and high schools for over 40,000 students in the US and Europe.
