Introducing CASS NOELLE new R&B/Soul songstress from Ontario, Canada.
CASS' inspiration for making music is her life and experiences. "Life and everything I see around me inspires me. I like to observe whats going on around me, around the world and then reflect on my own life and experiences. I have so much to say and sometimes the only way to be heard is through a 'reputable' platform and music allows me to do that."
A huge fan of the arts, she has always been creative and loved to sing. Within the last 3 years CASS decided it was time to take her singing more seriously. "I would record covers and post them on Youtube which led to taking lessons. The next thing you know I'm releasing my first EP, "Internal Dialogue", with all original music."
CASS' distinctive sound sets her apart from the music on the radio and is sure to make her own lane in R&B/Soul music. "My music is more than a tune and some lyrics, I'm not striving for it to be the next big hit because of its production value. When I write a song I'm hoping people receive the message and that what I'm saying resonates with them. Sometimes I feel I don’t fit in with the music industry. It's hard to articulate, because I feel like it could sound like I think I’m better or above those in the industry. Singing is just my way of being heard. I get to sing and people receive my words in that way. I’m not doing it for the money, rewards or other things that may come with working in any industry."
Her aura is certainly not that of the run-of-the-mill R&B/Soul singer we're used to, she is much deeper than that. "Hmm, at this point in my career, I guess I consider myself a soul/r&b singer. I like to think about my music as inspirational and thought provoking as well. Although I am grounded in soul every song I write carries a different vibe which I embrace rather than trying to make it fit in with a particular sound. I’m just me and I sing, I don’t imagine being boxed in by a genre."
CASS' musical influences include the late, great Whitney Houston and Leon Bridges. "I've been listening to a lot of Whitney Houston lately, but I do really love Leon Bridges. I tend to listen to older music and whatever I come across on Spotify (laughing)."
CASS NOELLE's goal as an artist is to be seen as more than just a human with a nice voice. "I want to be able to spark new conversations and changes within people and the world." She will be releasing a new single later this year to follow up her debut EP "Internal Dialogue" and the video for, "Love You Anyway", was released in July.
