Gerald V. Casale is the co-founder and a principal songwriter of the pioneering, thinking man’s pop group known as DEVO. One of the seminal rock groups of the early Eighties, DEVO counts among its credits three gold albums, two platinum albums and several hit singles. In addition to writing and performing, Casale, a graduate of Kent State University (BFA) was the driving force behind the group’s elaborate multi-media stage productions and trend-setting graphics. Casale is also credited with having pioneered the music-video format. Beginning in 1977, he conceived and directed twenty of the group’s video clips including the innovative and award-winning pieces “Whip It”, “Beautiful World” and “Satisfaction”. He went on to direct videos for many other artists and hundreds of TV commercials, and in addition to other musical projects, reunited with Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh in 2010 for the band’s first studio album in 20 years.
