“Costello has a rich, lovely voice . . . never less than crystal clear . . . a gifted young man with a future of large promise.”
~ Michael Lasser, City Newspaper
“Casey Jones Costello is a 22-year-old anachronism . . . who specializes in crooning the music of a man who died before Costello was born, Bing Crosby. . . Costello cut a slim, romantic figure as he mixed snappy music-hall patter with Crosby’s best known song[s] . . . all delivered accompanied by piano in the lightly fluttering vocals popular with singers of that day.”
~ Jeff Spevak, Democrat and Chronicle
“Casey has been a delight for our residents. His passion for music is evident in the research he provides about his songs as well as the performance of each song. His performance at The Manor House is always an anticipated event and we look forward to when he can return.”
~Rustie Reeb, Life Enrichment Director, The Manor House, Batavia, NY
“His voice is silky and rich and every word is crystal clear, sung with a passion and emotion that is rarely seen in performers today. And he’s a wonderful storyteller … This young man with an old soul is not to be missed ….”
~ Martin S., Fan Review of More Lullabies of Broadway

“Singing with the delivery and grace of a bygone era . . . Costello sings these songs the way they were meant to be sung.”
~ Rochester Fringe Festival
“My friend Helana and I thoroughly enjoyed the many Fringe Festival presentations during the past few weeks. The last and our grand finale was an exceptional young singer by the wonderful name of Casey Jones Costello. His performance at RAPA was enchanting and he gifted us with various songs from the golden age of Broadway. Oohs and ahs preceded many of his choices as recognition and appreciation swept the audience. I predict a bright spotlight will follow this recent graduate of Nazareth College.”
~ Karen Walter-Passarell, Democrat and Chronicle
