Casey Olsen

Casey Olsen Music has been around Casey ever since he was born. With both his father (Hiram Olsen - guitarist) and maternal grandfather (Billy Hew Len - Hawaiian steel guitarist) being professional musicians, Casey was destined to grow up and follow in their footsteps. An accomplished steel guitarist, Casey has played for many years at the Halekulani Hotel's House Without A Key and at various venues throughout Hawaii, Japan and the mainland.

He has performed on the Hawaii Calls Radio Show and with Nina Kealiiwahamana, Boyce Rodriques, Marlene Sai, Bill Kaiwa, Melveen Leed, Danny Kaleikini, and others. He has many recording credits with artists such as Herb Ohta Jr., Kawai Cockett, Teresa Bright, Hapa, Gary Haleamau, Kapono Beamer, Na Leo Pilimehana, as well as with young new artists such as Raiatea Helm, Anelakalani, and Nakema.

Casey currently performs as a member of the Hiram Olsen Trio (sometimes called the Casey Olsen Trio) along with dad/gujitarist Hiram Olsen and bassist Dennis "Bla" Keohokalole at the Halekulani's House Without A Key.
