Casey Golden

Pianist Casey Golden was born in Sydney, Australia into a family of jazz musicians. He began studying classical piano from the age of five and was exposed to a wide variety of music during his childhood through his mother’s vast record collection and the rest of his musical family. At the age of 17 (2005), he won a BBM Jazz Award that sent him to study and play with musicians in London. On his return to Sydney, he completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in jazz piano, and a Bachelor of Arts, both degrees earned with Distinction, from the University of New South Wales.
