Description
Buddy Case is one of those rare musicians who is not only an accomplished singer / songwriter, but a gifted guitarist as well. Born in Portland, Oregon, Cases’ family followed the crop harvests into California. Case remembers picking prunes, green beans and cucumbers as a small child. “I remember eating more raw green beans than I put in the bag,” he laughs. “Listening to the Mexican families playing music in their yards at evening time had a profound effect on the style I developed on guitar”, Case says. In fact you can hear the influence of Spanish guitar on several of Cases’ recordings. By the time he was 14, his family had moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, and he was playing lead guitar in a 40 piece church orchestra.

He released his first CD in 1999, titled A Simple Life and later a Christmas CD. In 2001, Case formed an all-acoustic band, The Acousticatz. Within the next year, the band went through two separate personnel changes and in 2003, his band won the Arkansas State Championship in the Colgate Country Showdown, the largest competition of its kind. They went on to represent Arkansas in Atlanta, Georgia, finishing 12th overall in the nation out of over 100,000 entries. Case produced two CDs with the Acousticatz and is currently working on an all original CD with the group. He produced a live CD in 2005 and has finished his 6th CD, which was released in November, 2006. Case has opened for the Nashville Bluegrass Band, but the highlight of Case's music career was playing onstage with Texas legends, Augie Meyers, W.C. Jameson, and Mike Blakely in Luckenbach, Texas.

Whether playing venues across the country or teaching guitar at a youth ranch, he remains busy doing what he loves.
