Robertson, Cassandra : Time Is Now
Cassandra Robertson is a conduit for all things positive. Her original songs shed light on the unlimited potential of the human spirit, inspiring her audience to revolutionize their own lives. This Oregon-raised singer/songwriter blends original guitar and vocal melodies that focus on solutions to political and social challenges of our time. With song topics ranging from quantum physics and organic gardening to stories of community activism, Cassandra's variety of progressive folk-grass appeals to a variety of music fans. Her debut album, "The Time is Now" was released in August 2006, showcasing Cassandra as a musician with a clear and heartfelt message. Songs such as "Love and Be Loved," "Awaken to Peace," and "Finding New Ways" exemplify her songwriting ability to awaken the spirit in all of us and move us to action. Cassandra continues to take her brand of "acoustic conscious folk" music on the road, reaching as many and as diverse of crowds as possible. She goes out of her way to perform in small communities, often overlooked by many touring acts, to reach the widest and often most excited and unexpectedly receptive audiences. A refreshing departure from traditional sorrowful folk music tales, Cassandra's performance will enliven any stage, and convey a rare optimism and excitement for life. 'You hit me in my Sunday home space, somewhere between crying out loud and being glad that I am alive.' 'It was like musical martial arts, I did not want to miss a note.' 'Your song 'Say yes' has changed my life and the way I look at things, thank you so much!' "I am a pretty conservative fellow, and I was just blown away with this music".
