Exploring her raw, unbridled songwriting talent in her new piano-led direction – Cassa Jackson returns with a stunning new ballad ‘Beautiful Confused’. Growing up, songwriting has always been a key part of Cassa’s life. Writing her first song at school, she reached the final of the Song Academy’s Young Songwriter of the Year awards. As a result, Jo Garofalo recognized her talent and invited her to perform as a solo artist at Wembley Arena for the ‘Voice in a Million’ charity event in 2017. Shortly after, she was performing the same track to a crowd of 40,000 people at the ‘Colour Day Festival’ in Athens.
Soon enough, she was translating her early successes into building an online following and a powerful artist brand. Over the past few years, she has recorded unique interpretations of hits by the likes of Ariana Grande, Rita Ora and Zara Larsson, resulting in over 1 million streams on Spotify.
Employing a strong work ethic and a full control over the creative direction of her project has been key to Cassa’s success. In 2020, she’s developing her sound as a purist songwriter by sharing her first ballad ‘Dear Mum’ for international women’s day. The track was supported by a number of key tastemakers including The Good Melodies youtube channel, where the track picked up 20k streams in just a few days. Following on from this release, Cassa returns with the equally stunning ‘Beautiful Confused’. Accompanied by a visual for Cassa performing the stunning single on a grand piano, it’s a track that explores regret and the passing of blame during a breakup. On the new single Cassa states:
“I wrote ‘Beautiful Confused’ as a breakup song to show myself how I would feel if my relationship did come to an end. This is a sad ballad about regret and taking some of the blame for the failure of a relationship on yourself. It’s so easy to blame and demonise the other person when things don’t work, but what is almost more sad is accepting the fact that you may have been in the wrong.”
