About this project

"Cassie Taylor is an up and coming force in the Roots music scene around the world. Her lyrics are a velvet hammer of angst and joy supported by an almost angelic voice that speaks of things we might be better off not knowing, but would sell our souls to find out about.
Musically diverse - modern yet with direct lineage to the Blues, Ms. Taylor conjures up music that is at once impudent and apologetic."

Chefjimi Patricola, Blues 411

My name is Cassie Taylor and I'm a 25 year old singer/songwriter/foot stomping/blues women with a post college budget. Yes, I have had  extraordinary opportunities to tour around the world, played with first class musicians, I serve on Board of Directors of the Blues Foundation, walked the red carpet in LA,  and meet all sorts of wonderful friends and fans in the process. I am a full time, hustlin' musician but unfortunately that dosn't always amount to cash flow.

Last year I signed a joint venture contract to release my first solo album "Blue". I was an amazing opportunity and a great first album, but now im ready to produce my own album which will be 10-12 original songs. 

Part of producing an album means securing funding for the project, and since I'm doing this all on my own I am asking everyone (fans, friends, and family) to donate to my cause. 

Please help me release "Cassie Taylor and the Soul Cavalry's" full length album so we can keep rocking out and sharing our music.
