About
High-energy original folk songs with a hearty dose of heartbroken classic country ballads thrown in.
Brett Cassidy is a Calgary, AB-based multi-instrumentalist that has spent the past decade honing his songcraft as part of a bevy of bands, playing folk, country, indie, and rock music across Canada. Now, for the first time, he has stepped out from the comfort of the background with guitar, and sometimes banjo in tow, to play solo songs that combine his favourite bits of all those genres. Drawing as much inspiration from traditional American folk and country music as he does from psychedelic drones, Cassidy's songs create a space for those forgotten in time to stomp their feet alongside a suitcase kick drum. You can often catch him weaving heartbroken cowboy songs of yesteryear from the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Marty Robbins, and Hank Williams into his set.
