Overview: Mark Casson and Shannon Hines Casson met on a train in London in the 90's. They began making music together-and the Cheeksters were formed. They created waves in Knoxville and Nashville with Mark's catchy pop songs. The band currently call Asheville North Carolina home-and have a 5-piece band that has been touring the past year in support of their new record "Movers and Shakers" which has been many rock critic's picks in the past year!
...the Cheeksters have the sort of back-story that should be turned into a screenplay: Amercian expatriate in London strikes up a conversation with a stranger on a train, sparks fly and they marry and form a band, eventually landing in Asheville. And their album "Movers and Shakers" would be the perfect soundtrack for just such a film--I'm thinking 2003's "Love, Actually" here-- 10 bouncy pop songs that sound as if they should be blaring in a boisterous pub.
