Roots Singer Songwriter Robinson Treacher and Powerhouse Vocalist Songstress Cassidy Cantanzaro
Believe the hype! This is going to be a memorable night at The Sevareid House. And we're stoked.
At the crossroads of Blues, Folk and Americana lies Robinson Treacher. Whether it be in the studio or in live performance, Robinsons emotionally dramatic songwriting style is matched only by his deeply passionate vocals. Steeped in what can only be labeled as a traditional songwriting format, Robinson has taken fibers from all genres...rock, country, R&B, and folk, and woven them into a distinct tapestry, one that is clearly distinguishable among others in the singer/songwriter genre. Born and raised in New York, his honesty and grit reflect the eclectic musical influences that have shaped everything from downstate New York City to the upstate Adirondacks. On the heels of his last release, Porches, Robinson has released Born, a purposefully stripped down collection of songs that rarely contains more than an acoustic guitar, an upright bass and of course those powerfully distinct vocals. Robinson has been featured on Sirius/XMs The Loft: Live from The Living Room series and has shared the stage with such notable artists as Vince Gill, Iris Dement, GE Smith, Joan Osborne, Cheryl Wheeler, Amy Helm and Carrie Rodriguez. He has even been touted by legendary songwriter Don Schlitz (Forever and Ever Amen, When You Say Nothing At All, The Gambler) as being, ...impossible to follow in concert.
Some say its her range. That its her ability to traverse multiple octaves across an uncannily wide vocal spectrum that makes her such an incredible performer. Perhaps this is the reason why the critics loved her in Parallel Worlds, why her fans across the country buy her records and industry insiders including, legendary Rolling Stone journalists or the President of USA Network all shower her with accolades. Why her celebrity peers call her, "A born star.
Others say its her power. And thats what made her a natural to be the lead singer of the rock band Antigone Rising, why they toured with the Rolling Stones, and why their subsequent record sales broke sales records. Perhaps this is also the reason why Robert Plant and Janis Joplin are everyones go-to references when describing her ability to bring the house down with every song she sings.
And yet, those that have seen her perform up close will argue that her heart is her true instrument and that this is what makes her genuine. Which is why everything she sings resonates with emotion, making her early work as important as her current, why she is always in demand and why her fans know that she will never sell out.
But it is only those who have the distinct privilege to know her both on and off the stage that really know what she is truly about. Its her soul that makes her special. It is also that which makes her truly iconic and why she will never just exist in the footnotes of music history, but in the annals of Rock and Roll fame. Perhaps this is the reason why her name appears with the likes of Demi Lovato, Steven Tyler, Gregg Allman, O.A.R., Steve Perry and Rob Thomas (just to name a few) as collaborator and compadre.
And whether shes writing songs, starring in a feature film (more on this later), or leading an incendiary rock band in an unforgettable live concert, there is one thing that the entire world can agree upon, Cassidy is all about The Music.
