Blaine Crews (Casey James)

I grew up in Harlingen, Texas. I remember at an early age hearing a Toto song called “Rosanna.” The intro to that song was so infectious to me. I did not understand what was going on, but I knew that I wanted to play the drums.

At age 13, my father bought me my first drum set and I began learning the instrument. I started playing in church and also formed a punk band with a few friends from school. I took a few drum lessons, but was primarily self taught.

At age 18, I moved to New York City and began studying at The Drummers Collective. After I left The Collective, I returned to Texas and relocated to Fort Worth, Texas where I currently reside. I have played and recorded with a number of bands and also play at Alliance Community Fellowship Church when I am in town.

I recently became the drummer for Casey James and will be touring nationally with him. I am available for drum lessons depending on my touring schedule.
