Sam Cassidy with special guest Erik Appelwick (Folk/Americana) $10

Friday, April 12 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Told from multiple character’s points of view, the songs on Running Blind focus both on one moment in time, and also take a wider lens to examine forces behind what makes a person come to such drastic actions, and how these decisions affect those around them – whether they realize it or not.

Each character delivers a new perspective of what drives them to make the choices that lead up to a dramatic conclusion. While the songs are fictional, Sam Cassidy can’t help but find pieces of himself in all the tracks. By taking himself out of the story, he unknowingly allowed himself to write about what he was previously hesitant to

While the songwriter heroes of Cassidy’s like Springsteen and Tom Petty are obvious influences, other more subtle influences like Kendrick Lamar or the works of director David Lowry and author/screenwriter Dennis Lehane are at work here as well. Building on his past releases, Cassidy continues to write about the lives of normal people, often riding the line between right and wrong.

Running Blind was produced by Jacob Hanson and calls on a crack team of musicians Cassidy has been working with onstage for the last few years- the All Night Canyons as well as the Red Daughters Band. The arrangements came naturally and the well worn chemistry between the musicians shines through on these recordings.
