Hello there everyone, I am Cassie Melody... I am a singer/songwriter. My music style is based around the piano and voice. I suppose it's an intuitive response to all those unexplainable thoughts and feelings, a personal representation of life's experiences. Poetry in song!!
I began at an early age. At 7 I attended ballet classes and new I wanted to be on stage! At school I was involved with Risin Stars. I joined the Stafforshire Youth choir as a first soprano. I went to Brighton university to study Music with visual practice, and joined many musical and dramatic societies, also involved with many degree shows. Writing music, performing, video, photography and installation were my main interests while at uni. I also studied contemporary dance for 2 years. Soon after I came home and did another course in fashion. Since finishing I have been working with 'Lookout' Theatre company, set up my own fashion business and i am currently working on writing my album, check out previews of my new songs here and on soundcloud x x x x
I love playing live and I am currently working on new material to perform in local venues.
My musical influences are Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Karen Carpenter, Gwen Stefani, Beatles, Kinks, Emiliana Torrini, Evanescence, Bjork, System of a Down, Lamb, Norah Jones, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, The Cure, NIN, Marilyn Manson, PJ Harvey, Sarah Mclaclan, Delirium, Enya, Sinead O'Conner, Cocteau Twins, All About Eve, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Led Zepplin, HIM, Carole King and loads more!!! I also love classical, banjo and jazz music.
I use Cubase SX at the mo, Proteus 1000, 4 track, and Logic Pro.
