"Cassandra Kubinski is very similar to the singer/songwriters of the late 70's...proves that the genre (singer/songwriter) can still be transcendent." - Billy Joel
Cassandra brings you classic holiday favorites with new twists, and contemporary new holiday songs, on HOLIDAY MAGIC, her EP released just in time for the holidays! Her last EP and 5th studio project ONWARD hit the Billboard Heatseekers Top 100 upon release in late 2016. Her song release, Autism anthem “Not So Different” was a collaboration with the Goo Goo Dolls and Mary Ramsey of 10,000 Maniacs, who recorded the song with Cassandra and released it via a sold out concert at Buffalo State University. You’ve heard her music on Lifetime’s “Dance Moms” (13 song placements), ABC, NBC, Bravo, MTV and more, and you’ve heard her voice on commercials for Snickers, Plenti, Homegoods, Kohls, Maybelline, and more. She's performed internationally; opened for The Goo Goo Dolls, 10,000 Maniacs, Anna Nalick, Nelson, and Dickie Betts; and performs at colleges like UCONN, URI, and Albright. She also serves on the Board of Women In Music, The Institute of Audio Research Advisory Committee, and taught songwriting at NYU's summer intensive. www.CassandraKubinski.com
The humility that Matt Cusson exudes never hints at the wealth of talent that he embodies. Outwardly unassuming, magic happens as soon as Matt starts to sing. Matt has floored audiences with his vocal acrobatics, range, and control, but his one-of-a kind voice is only the beginning. Matt is also a highly accomplished pianist, guitarist, songwriter, arranger, producer, and dancer.
Perhaps most importantly however, he writes songs that touch the listeners very soul. His music hits deep, with unique chord combinations, inspiring rhythms, and an uplifting message. It is difficult to place Matt's music into any specific category. His style is fresh, sophisticated, and unique. He credits Stevie Wonder, Djavan, Take 6, James Tayler, Miles Davis, and Nat King Cole heavily influencing his music, along with more contemporary artists such as Dave Matthews, Avishal Cohen, D'angelo and John Mayer (a friend from Berklee College of Music with whom Matt has played alongside.)
