Cassia Dawn – Who I Am as an Artist
“Cassia Dawn is a singer/songwriter who feels that most of life is lived in the “in between”….
With an expressive vocal style, thought-provoking lyrics and a sprinkle of music theory, her music is a warm companion through the ever-changing landscape of life.
“My favorite bands always ask the questions and point to Hope…
That’s what I want to do for my listeners…. So many of my fans feel caught in between cultures/expectations/their own fears/polarizing extremes… etc. I see a lack of balance in a lot of the music that’s being put out. There aren’t a lot of songs that talk about the real pain–they are “empowerment” anthems that don’t honor the struggles we all face.
The contradictions. The questions.
There is a time and place for that, but we also need space to be our “real” selves. Which is a whole lot messier and complicated.
I am an artist who has bigger questions than I have answers. I believe life is mostly lived from “in between,” where we’ve been and where we are going. I play guitar, sing and write songs about the things I don’t always know how to say or who would care to listen.
I do it because I believe that if you’re breathing–you matter.
Everyone was born with a song… it just sometimes gets distorted from our experiences. I won’t always have answers. I can’t fix the pain. What I hope is to use my melody to help crack a little light … so you can see the intricacy of the ‘work of art’ that you are.
I believe music has the power to bypass our minds and connect with our souls. C.S. Lewis has a quote about how stories “sneak past the watchful dragons of religion”.
In the musical sense, I use songs to connect to myself in a way I don’t know how to otherwise, and I hope to create that same experience for other people.
“Let me Hear the Music.”
It’s the name of a song I wrote last year, when I realized that the spark I used to feel for music had slowly gotten replaced by pessimism and “realistic expectations.” I wasn’t playing music for fun, it was all laborious.
The song was a prayer … an honest confession of the disappointment in my career. The song ends on a hopeful note, talking about taking things one step at a time.
