April is Autism Awareness Month. We are so grateful for the chance to help raise awareness and funds with the video/song NOT SO DIFFERENT. Please check it out below, share it with friends and family, and download it. Sales currently benefit Autism Speaks, and our launch event in NYC benefitted Music For Autism. An awesome group of entertainment pros, kids on and off the Autism spectrum, and NYC community buildings helped us make this video a reality, and we’re also grateful to Living Lotus Project and all the incredible crowdfunders who generously donated to see this video through to fruition!
Meanwhile, big thanks and love to everyone who has seen, downloaded, and shared AVALANCHE so far! We’re still going and growing, with some radio and TV placements in the works, and a newly redesigned live show coming soon. If you’re a fan of good love, surrender, letting go, and romance, you’re going to dig this.
The new music video for “Avalanche” from album “Just Being Myself” was officially released Valentine’s Day, 2014. Check it out, Comment, and Share the video on Facebook, Twitter and with your friends and family!
In Cassandra’s own words: “Avalanche” started out as a love song about a very specific event in my life, when I was in a place of real resistance and not being able to hear the inner voice of what I wanted, or at least to trust that voice. I resisted love, and doing what I loved, by finding every way to do anything else… travel, seek thrills in luxury, procrastinate with people and food and fashion and business… anything to avoid just being the artist I really wanted to be, and to express my love honestly. What I realized was that I thought I was keeping myself safe by doing that, but I was really keeping myself from a life of joy, release, and happiness. Letting go, giving in, diving into love is scary, because you don’t know what will happen, and so many of us have been so hurt by love that we learned to keep our guard up and keep people at a distance. But the very exhilaration, release, and safety we seek is only is giving into love and living it bravely, with grace and courage. This is something I’m still learning, and that’s what I hope people are inspired to do when they hear “Avalanche.”
“Avalanche” is produced by Frame:Runner NYC, directed by Keith Shapiro, with music production by Edd Kalehoff/Kalehoff Productions.
