Cassia (Manchester, UK)




"Mixing warm tropical grooves with infectiously raw guitar melodies, Cassia, best served with white rum, have in just half a year grown to be one of the most buzzing bands coming out of the North of the UK. All living in Manchester, Robert Ellis, Lou Cotterill and Jacob Leff formed the band mid 2015 taking their name from a fateful purchase of a djembe at an african drum shop. The trio began playing small gigs at local venues, making the band a full time endeavour when they started receiving Major Label interest following a debut performance at Y Not Festival in the summer. Since then, the band have supported multiple well known artists including Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio and have starting filling venues for their own headline shows. Cassia have established a unique and refreshing summery sound, and, combined with their limitless amounts of on stage energy, are prepped for a busy festival season in 2016.”
