Cassandra Cole with special guest Joel Robertson (Singer Songwriter) $10
Friday, March 22 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Minneapolis based singer/songwriter Cassandra Cole , doesn’t ask for your attention she demands it. Cole’s music traces the temperature of her own physical journey. From sun-drenched Californian plains to blizzard-misty Minnesotan highways. Being a mother of two sets of twins it can be easy to lose oneself and lose focus, but not for Cole. Instead, she uses her gritty, grounded and often complex life as a way of gripping the audience from first bar to second encore. Cole has written songs since the age of six and sold out the Aster Cafe in Minneapolis for her release party on February 17, 2018. Recently, she released her second single, “Caught Up” after winning a contest to work with Matty Amendola at 825 Records studio in Brooklyn, NY. She performed at the Pourhouse located in downtown Minneapolis participating in RAW’s showcase for emerging local artists. Cole filmed “Minnisingers” which will air spring 2019 highlighting local singer-songwriters. Cole’s diverse tonal palette and unique background provide the scaffolding for her own musical development. As a result, her songwriting is an eclectic blend of melodic soulfulness and modern edge.
Joel Robertson is an Indie/Folk/Pop musician based out of Twin Cities MN, Often being compared to as a blend of Ed Sheeran and Ben Howard. The mix of ambient and modern pop makes for a unique listening experience, no matter your taste in music. Joel Started teaching himself the art of music at the age of 7. Having no formal training, he learned to play the piano and guitar on his own, and started developing his vocals soon after. As he grew older he started facing heavy depression and through this he began writing and performing as a sort of therapy. Joel has been very open about his struggles as well as his overcoming. In an interview for his project “For You” he expressed how “Jesus Christ used music to save my life”. He wishes to make music that’s not only enjoyable, but speaks truth and love. To him, the most beautiful thing is for someone to connect to his art emotionally. Now at the young age of 20, Joel has spent his time performing around Minnesota, opening for the world-class artist Aaron Boyd, and playing at popular music venues such as the Minnesota State Fair and TPT Young Artist Feature. Currently Joel is on a nation wide tour with the Urban/Pop artist Tru-Serva and R&B singer Cara Rgnoti. On top of releasing his widely loved Single, Killing Time, Joel continues to make a name for himself in the MN music scene, and is preparing multiple projects for release early next year.
