[The] Caseworker Bio
[The] Caseworker was initially formed by Conor Devlin (vocals, guitar) and Eimer Devlin (vocals, bass) as a San Francisco-based recording project back in 2003. They released their first album These Weeks Should Be Remembered in late 2003. Rave reviews prompted the band to try some live shows, with Will Waghorn joining on drums, and extra guitar provided by Monte Vallier (Swell, Jet Black Crayon). Two more albums followed over the next three years: East of Sunset, a soundtrack album of Tom Waits covers, and their second album of original songs, When I Was A Young King, in 2006.
Between 2007 and 2009 [The] Caseworker went on accidental hiatus as the band members moved around the world. They’re now based respectively in Lausanne, Switzerland, Petaluma, USA, and Clifton-upon-Teme, England. Their new album, Letters From The Coast (Hidden Shoal, 2011), was recorded by Monte Vallier at San Francisco’s Ruminator Audio Studios (Young Prisms, Weekend, Tommy Guerrero).
