Cassie Josephine’s 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 album’s incredible lineup of musicians consists of Gianna Lauren, Erin Costelo, Anna Wedlock, and Cassie’s 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 was also nominated for Country Album of the Year at NSMW2017 as well as showcasing at the ECMA's, IDOW, and Cavendish Beach Country Music Fest as a member of the duo Cassie Josephine & Gabriel Minnikin.
