A vibrant personality and powerful voice electrify the room when 20-year-old Abby Kasch takes the stage! With a modern country sound infused with rock and soul, Abby is above all an entertainer. “When I see the looks on their faces, I know I’m making people feel good by doing the only thing that I could really do.” It was her early 2018 move to Nashville that further ignited this passion. “Once I started singing in Nashville as a full-time job, I realized I loved performing most. It’s all I ever wanted to do.”
A singer, songwriter and musician, Abby has opened for acts like Scotty McCreery and crowds of thousands at the Arcade Theatre (St. Charles, Illinois), headlined festivals attended by hundreds of thousands, and performed at renowned venues like the Chicago House of Blues. Today, you can see her performing as a full-time musician at Nashville’s top venues including the world-famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Honky Tonk Central, Rippy’s Bar & Grill, and Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar.
At 15, Abby got her first real taste of country music and fell in love on a family roadtrip to Florida from her hometown, a suburb of Chicago, Illinois called Palos Park. “I discovered Kenny Chesney radio on Pandora and listened to him the full 18-hour drive. I was hooked.”
Abby’s family first heard her sing at a 5th grade school concert and realized she had talent. She then got her first guitar at age 10 and began singing in church and school choir. At 12, Abby landed her first ongoing gig at Peppy’s Mexican Restaurant in Illinois. For 3 years she played guitar and sang along with an adult musician who quickly became a family friend and mentor, giving her the start to her now full-time music career.
Today, Abby has new music in the works! While at times retaining some pop country sound, her style has evolved from her 2016 debut album “L.O.V.E”. She has an exciting country rock project in process, writing and co-writing new music with fellow songwriters from LA to Nashville. She’ll be releasing new music in the Fall of 2018 and a full-length album soon. In the meantime, you can catch her performing in Nashville, Chicago, and other locations in the U.S.!
