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 currently recording her first EP, to be released independently this year. Dasilva released her debut singles "Welcome to My Castle" and “Rough Cut” on Universal Music Canada in 2018 after an impromptu jam night performance caught the eye of the label’s CEO and landed 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, written and produced by Dasilva and fellow Canadian Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), is featured in the film “The Christmas Wedding Planner”, which trended worldwide on Netflix, inspiring fan outreach from across the globe.  The independent artist released her latest single, “Still in Love” (produced by Mike Wise) in 2019, which outperformed both of her label releases on streaming platforms in only a couple of short months.  Working alongside multi-award winning Canadian writers and producers Hill Kourkoutis (Jules, Serena Ryder), and Robyn Dell’Unto (Lu Kala, Gus, Good Lovelies), Cassie is crafting 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 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.
