Pop singer/songwriter Cassandra is back with a new single that’s destined to be this year’s summer anthem!
With exciting and celebratory lyrics like got my fresh ID and my wallet, find a way to forget last year, champagne in the fridge let’s pop it, Uber’s here, “21 Ragin” is here just in time for listeners to finally break free from the gloominess of 2020.
“21 Ragin was born from my desire to go out and have fun with friends after the year 2020, especially since I just turned 21,” CASSANDRA explains. “This song is filled with nightlife energy and I hope it gets you fired up to dance and celebrate 2021!”
Born in Rockville, MD, CASSANDRA began singing as soon as she could speak. She grew up in Duluth, GA before moving to Binghamton, NY for middle school and high school. Her family resides in Jacksonville, FL. “Every city I’ve lived in has taught me something about myself and the world around me,” she explains. “Although it was difficult to move often, I’m grateful for the memories I have made and the lessons I have learned in each place.”
In high school, CASSANDRA began to dabble with her songwriting skills, composing several pop songs but never releasing them. It wasn’t until the Coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. in 2020 that she found what she loved most about the creative process of music. She started writing and co-writing pop music and began recording soon after.
As a trained opera singer, CASSANDRA has a vast vocal range that spans over four octaves. She has a fierce sound, with the ability to seamlessly weave in and out of tricky vocal runs that would trip up most singers. As an artist, her goal is to never treat two songs the same, thus developing a new sound for each one.
CASSANDRA is currently attending the New England Conservatory of Music, where she is studying Classical Voice and Opera.
