ABOUT CASSIE DASILVA
Cassie Dasilva is a budding pop artist from small town Orillia, Ontario, determined to take the global pop scene by storm.
Turning heartbreak and self-discovery into quirky pop anthems with purpose, Dasilva claims that a combination of social rejection, and several hilariously failed attempts at a love life inspired her committed relationship with music.
Having spent the past several years crafting her sound and finding her voice as a young adult, Cassie is preparing to record and release her first EP project, to be released independently.
Dasilva released her debut singles "Welcome to My Castle"and “Rough Cut” on Universal Music Canada last year after an impromptu jam night performance caught the eye of the label’s CEO, landing Cassie her first major recording contract. Both songs, produced by Mike Wise (bülow, Ralph, Johnny Orlando), experienced significant Spotify playlisting success. “Welcome to My Castle”, noted for being “vulnerable and infectious” (Directlyrics), quickly went top ten on the Spotify Viral 50 chart, and the infamous PerezHilton.Com featured “Rough Cut”, praising it as “Light. Dreamy. Enchanting!”.
Dasilva ended 2018 with the independent release of an original holiday single,“Season’s Greetings”. Sweetly-wrapped, yet socially-charged, and featured at the top of Spotify’s “Christmas in Canada” playlist, the single quickly garnered over 160,000 streams in the span of a few short weeks. The song was also placed in the film “The Christmas Wedding Planner”, which trended worldwide on Netflix, inspiring fan outreach and a demand for more music from across the globe.
Dasilva released her second independent single, “Still in Love”(produced by Mike Wise) in late February of this year, which is currently featured on several prominent pop playlists and has outperformed both of her label releases on Spotify in only a couple of short months.
Working with multi-award winning Canadian writers and producers, Dasilva has crafted a collection of songs that reflect her youthfulness, while equally speaking to her depth and maturity as a songwriter. Combining fun pop sounds with the sullen uncertainty and introspection that only those early-twenty-something years can bring, Cassie not only has a lot to say, but she’s figured out exactly how she wants to say it, and she’s ready to be heard.
