Cassie Josephine - Closer To You
Region: Nova Scotia
Genre: Country, Folk, Indie, Roots, Singer-Songwriter

Cassie Josephine kicks ass with contemplative lyrics and fantastic dresses. Her latest collection of songs, Only Half Blue, is one she thinks of fondly as a fairytale of middle-aged proportions. With her backing band, The Cry If I Want To’s, “the folk-music version of a cup of coffee” is brought to life with three-part harmonies, violin, piano, and guitar (The East Mag).

The incredible lineup of musicians consists of Gianna Lauren, Erin Costelo, Anna Wedlock, and her sister Krista MacDonald. The chemistry of the group is striking, elegantly highlighting the album’s sincerity, while quietly lifting the songs up as dreamy anthems that fill your heart.

Cassie wrote these songs in the months leading up to her fortieth birthday. Her “narratives, exceptional story telling, and her voice will melt even the coldest of hearts as she considers her first 40 years and looks forward to whatever life is going to throw at her in the next 40” (Rocking Magpie). 

This singer-songwriter based in Halifax, NS is also one half of the cosmic country duo 'Cassie Josephine & Gabriel Minnikin' whose 2016 split album releaseFlower Country, was nominated for Country Album of the Year at NSMW2017 as well as showcasing at the ECMA's, IDOW, and Cavendish Beach Country Music Fest.
