This is part two of our interview with singer/songwriter Casey McQuillen. We talked about each of her songs on her latest album Skinny. It is always awesome to hear why a songwriter, like Casey, wrote the songs and the titles they give each song.

I have to apologize here, the first part of this video is actually just audio with a photo of Casey’s album cover and then it goes back to video of her.  Technology, not sure what I did wrong.
