There are people that are most in their element looking into the eyes of strangers who are expecting performance, expecting talent, expecting excitement…then smile and deliver all that. This is Cassie, and if you don’t know, you should find out.
Cassie’s stunning vocals, soulful lyrics and wonderful charisma have been charming audiences in the Gainesville area for years. Cassie is also a guitarist whose original compositions compliment her acoustic talent. Her strong and powerful vocals have been compared to the strength of Mama Thornton with the soulfulness of Susan Tedeschi. Backporch all the way but never basic, Cassie’s music is wonderfully sultry and perfect for a front porch or a sold out auditorium.
