Nancy Cassidy

Multi-Platinum singer and songwriter Nancy Cassidy, whose 15 projects combined have sold over 2 million copies, has just released her 9th album of original material, RIVER’S RISING, offering 13 cuts of comfort,community, compassion and hope during times that need it. Like right now. Her millions of fans will recognize her signature stamp and smoky alto through the whole ride, with styles ranging from folk and gospel to feisty rock-a-billy. Cassidy’s mature songwriting talents are on full display. At times the tunes are tender, at others they’re right back at you, but there’s a river of strength and resilience that runs under all of it. Her material has been recorded by dozens of artists over the years, most notably by Bruce Springsteen. And no one-sheet of Nancy Cassidy would be complete without mentioning that one of her tunes is out of this world: “I Wanna Be a Dog” was beamed up to the shuttle astronauts, and “CHICKEN” was featured on the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black! Veteran Ed Tree, born and bred in the deep south, produced RIVER’S RISING at legendary Sunset Sound, bringing in the cream of LA’s session players for a full-throttle showcase of exceptional talent, including Taras Prodaniuk (Richard Thompson), Gary Ferguson (John Hiatt), and Jay Dee Mannes (Pedal Steel Guitar Hall of Fame). Back-up vocals were provided by the Waters Family, who has more than 260 Gold Records to their credit, along with Teresa James, Sally Dworsky & Steve Kobashigawa.
Since 2008, Nancy Cassidy has hosted House Concerts in California and Idaho, monthly songwriting circles in Santa Cruz, and since 2014 has hosted weeklong singer/songwriter retreats in Stanley, Idaho…all with the purpose of encouraging a supportive and creative musical community. Currently, Cassidy performs about 100 shows a year. In addition to performing at various adult venues, she also serves as a volunteer, singing with seniors, children and to people residing in various institutions.
