“There is something ethereal, otherworldly about Cassie Rose's voice, and yet it seems infused with nature and an affinity to the earth. She seems at once both firmly grounded, and yet engaging the astral, her feet on the ground and her heart flying high in the sky. It is a voice and music that you must hear for yourself, and you will instantly know how remarkable she is...”
The music of Cassie Rose takes you to a place not all dare to venture. A place of honesty and heart… enchantingly deep, yet sweet and soft… her sound is an eclectic infusion of flavours… There is a sense of old familiarity, whilst having a freshness that wakes up the senses. Her debut EP release ‘Destiny’ encapsulates this. Released in 2014 after many years of writing and performing, the record had to come into fruition. Songs from the EP were finalists in the NCEIA Dolphin Awards in 2014 & 2016, & in 2017 her song 'Feeling Free' featured on the soundtrack for the award winning Locally made Film 'Undertow', produced by Peter Spann & which premiered at the Byron Bay Film Festival.
A few years have past, many gigs have been done and 2 babies have been born… Cassie taking some time out to be Mum. “Whilst having these moments away from music the musical flame was still burning and in 2017, after starting my ‘Blue Eyed Soul’ project with a 7 piece band, I started on plans to record my Debut Album. So in 2018, whilst being 6 months pregnant with my 2nd baby we went into the Studio to record 8 songs Live in 3 days… and from there the Album was born and so was my son!”
Over a year in the making… the last finishing touches were done in the home Studio and by musical friends in Germany, Melbourne & Locally… & Cassie’s Debut Album ‘Memories Of The Past’ was released to the world on November 1, 2019.
The Album is a collection of songs from the past, all snapshots of Cassie’s journey through music & life thus far, that needed to be let loose into the world before moving onto her latest chapter. A bit Groovy, a bit Souly, a bit Soundscapey… honest reflections with lots of colours & space. “The concept of the Album was to encapsulate ‘Memories Of The Past’ in the Music, Musicianship & Artwork… featuring many of my musical friends that have contributed to my music along the way & creating an Artwork that represented me & my journey through it all. Playing & creating music to me is about connection & collaboration, & I aim to continue to allow my music to grow & evolve in this way!”
Cassie Rose was born into a bigger than average family, one of 7 who are all very musical… born on the floor in the family bus and living a very simple but highly nourishing life… always surrounded by music… singsongs to her father’s tunes, 4 part harmonies and jams in the lounge room. Singing from the moment she could talk, her love and drive to pursue music grew into something she had no choice but to go with… taking her to University to study music, around Australia and the world, playing the Adelaide Fringe Festival and sharing the stage with such Artists as Lior, James Blundell, Rick Price and The Angels.
Choosing to fly solo for many years, and on occasions with the addition of her Brothers ‘Ghost Road’ and sisterly harmonies… Cassie has in more recent years joined forces with her life and musical partner, Alex McLeod.... Their union evolving into a band with some of her favourite musical friends by her side…. This collaborative journey has taken her music to a new place. Cassie has also spread her wings wide and has been involved in many other recording and live projects as a backing vocalist and session singer. Working with Artists such as Rebecca Ireland, Leigh Carriage, Luke Vasella, Andy Jans-Brown & Cozmic, local Producers, and Performing at Nannup Music Festival, Mullum Music Festival & Caloundra Music Festival.
Cassie has spent many years as a Vocal Tutor at the Northern Rivers Conservatorium & teaching from home, imparting her knowledge onto others & sharing her love of music & singing. And many more hours as a Barista amongst the community, sharing the coffee love & keeping the money flowing!
Following the Album Release, Cassie will be doing 2 Launch Shows, one in Lismore where she now resides, & a private Show on her home turf near Port Macquarie.
2020 will be filled with more gigs Locally & along the NSW North & Mid-North Coast, with her band. As well as many Acoustic gigs & a few new projects in the works. So stay tuned!
‘Destiny’ has received National Community Radio Airplay on 3RPC 99.3 FM, Portland VIC, 88.3 Southern FM, Fotscray VIC, 2AIR FM, Toormina NSW, Coast FM, Walkerville SA, UGFM, Alexandra VIC & Cassie had feature interviews on Bay FM, Byron Bay NSW & River FM, Lismore NSW.
