Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, twenty two year old singer-songwriter Cassidy Mann makes emotionally driven indie pop music. First emerging as an artist in her early teens, Mann garnered a national audience with her single “Don’t Give Up On Me” reaching number one on NCI FM’s Top 40 Countdown and later being performed on Parliament Hill for Canada Day celebrations in 2015, broadcast live on CBC. Her second independent release found her showcasing at JUNOFest and being nominated for “Aboriginal Recording of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards, spotlighting her as an artist to watch. Following final show dates in support of that album, titled “Blue Skies and Bright Eyes” Mann retreated to begin working on a new sound, honing her songwriting skills and fully delving into the world of pop. The result is her new single “Encore”, a minimalistic pop triumph about the repetitive nature that often comes with ending a toxic relationship.
Cassidy is currently working on an album.
