There is a new artist in town that is force to be reckoned with. You may not know her yet, but get ready. West Texas-born Sydney Wright has been writing songs for over a decade, and while her huge voice often gets her compared to pop darlings like Florence and the Machine and Sara Bareilles, there’s a darker, more experimental edge to her work. Drawing heavily from hip-hop rhythms, with loops of piano, guitar, beatbox and doo-wops, Wright creates a sonically complex, live-looping, one-woman show. Even listening to just one song off her new debut album, her raw artistry, vulnerability and songwriting prowess speaks volumes.
DJ Cass&Ra (a project of composer + keyboardist Cassie Shankman) is an Austin-based female DJ specializing in health & wellness. She primarily plays a mix of funk, disco and house, but other sets have included classic hip-hop, rap, indie-electronic-pop, club mixes, top-40s, and world music. As a trained musician who understands the musical theory behind songs, Cassie began DJing friends’ house parties, creating a good vibe, and began growing her audience and clients. Even though Cassie DJ’s for many different events, Cassie specializes in DJing for health & wellness clients/events. Her day job is working with the Movement Tracks Project designing original Biomedical Music™ to help people move. She uses her research and findings from testing in DJing to create the perfect sets for movement for her clients, whether it be a morning yoga class or a late-night dance party.
