Kasim Sulton of UTOPIA

Growing up in Staten Island New York, Kasim and his family would often gather around and sing songs together while his dad played acoustic guitar. That was his first introduction to being involved in and playing and listening to music. Like many others, he really felt that being a musician was his calling when he saw the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan show on TV. He started taking guitar lessons, and over the next few years, really started connecting with people in the New York music scene. He heard about an audition for the band Utopia, which needed a bass player. He auditioned for the band, which had already tried seven different people. Todd Rundgren was hesitant to bring him into the band but said yes. Kasim wrote and sang what would become their biggest song, ‘Set Me Free.’ Kasim has toured with many more artists including Blue Oyster Cult, Meat Loaf, Hall & Oats, Cheap Trick, & Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
