Cassady Southern grew up in a musical household in Victoria, with her father playing in pioneering rock bands in Melbourne during the 70s.
Cassady released her first EP 'Don't ask me' in 2012. The EP received radio airplay around the country and the opening track “Why didn't you want me?” was a finalist in the Rock category of the 2013 MusicOz Awards. 'Don't ask me' contains a cover of the classic Stones track 'No Expectations' which has been praised and still enjoys airplay on community radio today.
Cassady then released her second EP “Heart” in 2016. 'Heart' also received airplay on radio stations across Australia and internationally. It featured on the top 100 Triple J Unearthed Charts and has been described as "a beautiful collection of modern blues music" (The Forbes Phoenix) and "[an EP where] The one constant is Cassady's fine vocals and the superbly delivered musical arrangements" (Beehive Candy UK).
Cassady's is a 'musical' kind of music, emphasising solid use of instruments, particularly the electric guitar, as well as strong melodies, lyrics and arrangements. Her influences include The Rolling Stones, Powderfinger and The Divinyls.
She is currently studying music production and working on new music to be released later in 2020.
