Core of Self
Cassandra Allen brings many years of music industry experience to this CD. She began her music career as a DJ in New York. She played with vinyl for 12 years and was likened to a storyteller because she expressed sagas through her music. In 2000, Cassandra traded her turntable adventures for music production. She brings love and passion to her electronic compositions through unconventional mixes and lyrics designed around her core thoughts. Cassandra enjoys exploring several genres, but has a special fondness for romantic dance music. With the release of the CORE OF SELF CD, Cassandra takes you on a predominantly instrumental journey that allows your imagination to fill in the words.
