Shownotes

Surrounded by an extremely supportive family, CASSANDRA has been heavily influenced by her mother’s musical talents. She began taking classical voice lessons at the age of twelve and has continued to do so for the last eight years. By age thirteen, she had already released her first pop single, “Never Stop Dreamin’.” 

Born in Rockville, MD, CASSANDRA began singing as soon as she could speak. She grew up in Duluth, GA before moving to Binghamton, NY for middle school and high school. Her family now lives in Jacksonville, FL, where CASSANDRA enjoys spending most of her free time. “Every city I’ve lived in has taught me something about myself and the world around me,” she explains. “Although it was difficult to move often, I’m grateful for the memories I have made and the lessons I have learned in each place.” 

In high school, CASSANDRA began to dabble with her songwriting skills, composing several pop songs but never releasing them. It wasn’t until the Coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. in 2020 that she found what she loved most about the creative process of music. She started writing and co-writing pop music and began recording soon after. Her most recent single, “Love Country,” was released to the public via all streaming platforms on March 26, 2021.

As a trained opera singer, CASSANDRA has a vast vocal range that spans over four octaves. She has a fierce sound, with the ability to seamlessly weave in and out of tricky vocal runs that would trip up most singers. As an artist, her goal is to never treat two songs the same, thus developing a new sound for each one.

Currently studying Classical Vocal Performance at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA, CASSANDRA plans to release her first EP, “Made for Me” on April 16, 2021. “I want fans to feel inspired by who they truly want to be. I hope to be a strong, non-polar influence that encourages people to look inside at what they want to be in life.” CASSANDRA aims to help invigorate her listeners to find their happiest selves, without being influenced by the media.

Known for bringing powerhouse vocals, crafty storytelling, youthful energy, and a message of empowerment in her songs, CASSANDRA is always setting her sights on achieving success. “2020 has motivated me to never wait on my dreams. My passion for creating has never been stronger and I am excited to continue motivating myself to create better, deeper song topics while pushing the limits of pop vocals.”
