Born Marcus Morris, Casper has taken his negative past and used those experiences to manifest a successful music career that unites the underdogs and outsiders.
Like ammunition in a gun, Casper’s spits fire lyrics with passion and conviction. His incredible introspective on life, creates music that is authentic and honest; telling a story based on his own life experiences.
After the passing of his mother at the age of 12, Casper started surfing from foster home to foster home; eventually moving to London, Ontario at age 14.
At 16, his life spun out of control landing him homeless, struggling through poverty, dealing with a drug addiction and involved with violence. Through it all, it was music that kept Casper’s head above water and led him to get his life back on track by focusing on honing his craft and recording music.
In 2010, Casper received a blessing that brought positivity back to his life. The birth of his daughter, Marlee, brought motivation and purpose to his music career and life. He formed the record label Treetop Entertainment, releasing numerous tracks and supporting the trajectory of other artists.
