Cassady Southern is a pop rock singer-songwriter living in Sydney.
She released her debut EP “Don’t ask me” in 2013. The EP contains four original tracks as well as a cover of the Rolling Stones classic "No Expectations' and feature Peter Northcote on guitar and the rock-solid rhythm section of Lloyd G and Dario Bortolin. "Don't ask me" received airplay played on radio stations across the country and the opening track “Why didn't you want me?” was a finalist in the Rock category of the 2013 MusicOz Awards.
Cassady released her second EP “Heart” containing four new original tracks in November 2016. "Heart" features Wolf Mail, Rueben Alexander, Brad Fitter and Paul Najar and was recorded by Nick Franklin (Matt Corby, Miley Cyrus) and produced by Nick and Daniel Vanda (The Wrights, British India).
Says Alan Edwards of Seymour FM:
"Cassady Southern is a wonderfully modern exponent of R & B, without losing its essential 'character and feel'. Her lyrics reach into and touch experiences that so many people have been through themselves. "Breakdown", and "I Liked It", are two catchy and very original pieces, that have featured on my show 'Musical Australiana', and received praise from my listeners."
Three of the four tracks on "Heart" were also shortlisted in the Songsalive Australia songwriting competition and the EP made it in to the top 100 Triple J Unearthed Charts.
Cassady's songs are authentic and catchy collections of modern blues music. She is a evocative and poetic lyricist and values the art of true musicianship, as shown by the talented people she collaborates with on her songs.
Cassady is currently playing as part of an acoustic duo and a five-piece band around Sydney and planning a wider tour. She is also working on her first full-length album.
