PACIFIC NW ELECTRIC AMERICANA BAND

eSTABLISHED 2021

The Common Thread formed in 2021, with their lineup solidifying as a trio in 2022. They are an electric Americana band based in Olympia, Washington. Fronted by singer/songwriter Casey Meehan, the trio also features bassist, Jim Farley and fiddler, Damian Nelson. This Americana group blends guitar, fiddle, bass, percussion and soulful vocals in a captivating, foot-stomping performance. Their music is best described as Pub Rock, a crockpot of alt-country, folk and rock & roll with songwriting placing a strong emphasis on fiddle melodies and a toe-tapping rhythmic bedframe. 

Over the winter of 2023-24 The Common Thread recorded their debut full length record, “Echoes by the Ocean”, available for streaming and download on the music page within this site. A concentrated effort was made during the making of this record to create a balanced record as a whole, not just a collection of songs. They wanted to showcase the identity of The Common Thread's live performance and feel, while also leaving some room to explore the studio as an instrument. The result is a collection of 11 songs.
