Cassadee Pope, season three winner of the hit reality show “The Voice”, has recently become one of my new favorite singers. I did not follow her journey on “The Voice”, but I got hooked on her incredible voice after viewing the covers she performed on the show via YouTube.
In addition to her covers from the show, I have been listing to her self-titled EP, which she released a little less than a year ago. The album unfortunately only contains four tracks, but I think it really shows her ability as a musician. “I Guess We’re Cool”, is a catchy tune that is more familiar territory for the singer who fronted the alternative rock band Hey Monday. In contrast the ballad, “Told You So”, focuses less on the melody and more so on lyrics and the raw emotion that Cassadee conveys through her vocals.
Cassadee recently signed with the country label Republic Nashville, which is home to Eli Young Band and The Band Perry. She is also set to tour this summer with Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry. I am extremely excited to see how Cassadee with incorporate her love for pop/rock music into a full-length country album. Keep an eye out for Cassadee Pope; big things are ahead for this musician!
