Hometown: Huntsville, AL (USA)


In April 2005, Cassino was birthed from the remnants of the two principle songwriters of the Alabama rock group Northstar...an inevitably organic genesis that came to light through a creative bond that existed for numerous years between Nick Torres and Tyler Odom. They began recording their first album in 2006 with Nashville–based producer/drummer Craig Krampf, known for his work with artists including Dolly Parton, Alabama, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Perry and Melissa Etheridge. While the duo says that the record doesnâ??t have a specifically Nashville sound, the city did become prevalent in the making of their debut record â??Sounds of Salvation,â? both as a new environment to inspire songwriting, and in the cast of characters brought in by Krampf. â??Salvationâ? was soon blessed by the contributions of E Street Band bassist Garry Tallent and legendary saxophonist Jim Horn.
