Description: Join us for the official release celebration of ON MY WAY HOME (Cassandra) and its sister single ELEVEN TIMES OVER (Phil Zipkin)! Cassandra, Phil, and some superb backing musicians will wind their way through songs that explore every phase of a relationship, from the blush of a first flirtatious glance, to the comfort and home of finding a true partner, to the regret and sadness that accompanies romantic endings. This performance is also a benefit for Swish, a gay/straight alliance that educates and empowers straight allies to be involved in the LGBT rights movement. This evening will be presented a part of the Swish Nights Out monthly series. www.swishpride.org

CASSANDRA KUBINSKI is a singer/songwriter, studio vocalist, actress, and producer.  She’s about to release her 4th album (mid-2012), produced with Edd Kalehoff, the composer/producer behind the music of Monday Night Football, The View, Good Morning America, the YES Network , Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, and artists like Faith Hill, Britney Spears, and Sarah Vaughn.  “This one’s more cinematic than my previous ones, and more fun,” explains Cassandra.  “Each song is like a mini-movie, and my writing is more honest than I’ve ever been before” And whether she’s writing about love, bittersweet memories, partying, air travel, or the Big Apple, that real-world honesty meets a dramatic, sensual swirl of cinematic images and metaphors influenced by her earliest musical experiences: Billy Joel and other songwriters, Disney movies, musical theatre, classical and jazz.  Several music videos have already been released, including Just Being Myself, the classical/dance/pop anthem of being awesome, Windblown Girl, a country-tinged romance story, and Textual Healing,  an updated parody of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” which features a rather cheeky video.  The videos are available at her website, www.CassKubinski.com , on YouTube, and also at Facebook.com/CassKubinski
 
Cassandra’s previous albums (Live at Camp Nashville (2010), Hold the Sun (2007), hiding underneath (2005)) established her on the singer/songwriter scene in NYC and elsewhere, as she toured the US (Borders Books and Music national “Artist to Watch” 2008) through clubs, coffeehouses, colleges, private homes, benefits, and everywhere she could jump on a piano and sing.  Further-flung places like Germany and Jamaica followed, and she found herself opening for the likes of Anna Nalick, Dickie Betts, Big Shot, and Ingram Hill.  Her music also started receiving radio airplay and placement on TV (ˆMTV, Lifetime, Food Network, Bravo, more) and films (Dare (Sundance feature), Red Hook, Life’s Passing Me By), including many songs produced with TRIFECTA, one of her production teams. 
 
After 5 years in New York, Cassandra moved to to Nashville, TN, and spent most of 2009 assisting with the opening of a showcase venue, writing with some of country’s biggest hit writers, and exploring the Nashville live performance scene and business.  2009 also saw the release of Clear Blue Tuesday, a rock movie/musical following the lives of 11 New Yorkers in the 7 years post-9/11.  “It was incredibly collaborative, because the entire story was developed through improv over the course of 9 months, and every actor wrote the songs their character sings in the movie.”
 
By 2010, Cassandra was ready for the pulse, passion, and challenge of NYC once again, and moved into the heart of Manhattan.  Since her return, her career has expanded to include voicing many jingles and voice-overs for brands like Maybelline, Hasbro, Barnes and Noble, and Twizzlers, and she now regularly develops songs on commission for artists, brands, and events.  “But I’m most excited about getting back onstage and performing live more often, in support of the new album,” she smiles.  “I’ve been in the studio, which is awesome because it’s a controlled environment of making magic, but nothing is more magical than creating a spark with real people in the audience, and I can’t wait to do that regularly again.”
 
Cassandra grew up in Enfield CT, graduated Florida State University with a BA in Theatre, and is also a certified yoga instructor and certified chocoholic. She also regularly performs in AIDS hospitals for LifeBEAT www.lifebeat.org  Connect with Cassandra at www.CassKubinski.com
 
Raised on 70’s singer songwriters and Disney musicals, CASSANDRA’s songs and live shows combine storytelling, drama, humor, and sensuality.  Don’t miss this exclusive preview of “just being myself”, her 4th studio album, (feat. Chris Botti) Cassandra began her career at age 12 as the 20th anniversary Annie at Goodspeed Musicals. TV, movies, commercials, and most successfully, pop music ensued, leading to songwriting honors from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Billboard World Song Contest, and Nashville Songwriters Association International.

“Cassandra  is a rarity; very similar to the legendary solo artists of the early to mid 1970…she proves that the genre [singer/songwriter] is not only alive and well, but that it is still capable of being transcendent.” - Billy Joel
