My Story

Enchantingly deep, sweet & soft, strong & free, Cassie's sound is a musical infusion of flavours. There is a sense of old familiarity, whilst having a freshness that wakes up the senses. Her stories told from the depths of her soul, woven tales of life, love, travel & reflection. Oozing honesty & a love for melody & harmony, her songs pave the way for her soulful voice to take play. 

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 & beyond. 

Choosing to fly solo for many years, (& on occasions with the addition of her Brothers ‘Ghost Road’ & sisterly harmonies). Cassie has in more recent years joined forces with her life and musical partner, Alex McLeod. Their union evolving into various band projects with some of their favourite musical friends by her side, the most recent is their band 'Cassie Rose & The Sol Garden'. 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. 

Together passion for travelling & music have taken her & Alex Nationally & Internationally, playing shows & Festivals such as the Adelaide Fringe Festival. On her own Cassie has shared the stage with such Artists as, Lior, James Blundell, Rick Price, Harper, Aurora Jane & Penelope Swales. As well as, collaborate, record & tour with Artists such as Rebecca Ireland, Andy Jans-Brown & Cozmic, Laura Targett, Luke Vassella & local Producers, 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, running group singing classes/workshops & teaching from home, imparting her knowledge onto others & sharing her love of music & singing. 

As well as many more hours as a Barista amongst the community, creating creative community events, making her own Chai blends & sharing the coffee love! 

Since the 2014 release of her EP, 'Destiny', & having played secret shows at Mullum Fest & gigs along the East Coast of Australia, Cassie has embarked on her journey into motherhood, shining a new light on her life & music & inspiring many new tales. “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!” 

In 2014 & 2016 Cassie was a finalist in the NCEIA Dolphin Awards for her songs 'Moving On' & 'Broken Trust', both off her EP. And in 2017 her song 'Feeling Free' featured on the Soundtrack for the Locally made Film, 'Undertow', produced by Peter Spann.  

Cassie & Alex have kept the collaborative journey going & in the past few years have grown a collection of songs with their band ‘Cassie Rose & The Sol Garden’. Their debut being a sold out Show at Norpa in Lismore in 2020. This project is one they are very proud of. A six piece band with groove, harmony & soul at the core. With Shows planned for the coming new year & an Album coming out in early 2024, there are exciting things ahead for this project!
