Still working on that hot first release.



Twenty year old singer songwriter Cassidy Zahar from Smoky Lake Alberta continues to wow crowds everywhere with her strong, distinct and unique voice that appeals to fans of all ages. Although she is rooted in classic country and folk, Cassidy loves performing all genres including Americana, old time rock ’n roll, R&B, blues and jazz. Currently enrolled at Macewan University in a Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music with a major in Performance, Cassidy is honing her skills and continues to expand her horizons in the music industry.   

Cassidy has achieved several major highlights in her career so far. She performs regularly with corporate house band, ‘The Million Dollar Dreamers’ at Halley’s Club in the Starlight Casino of West Edmonton Mall. Recently Cassidy featured in an all-women’s showcase, ‘Drop The Mic: Girls Tour,’ in March 2018 with her folk and blues band ‘Cassidy and the Sundance.’ Together they also opened for country band Doc Walker at Knoxville’s Tavern in February 2018. Cassidy opened for country singer Brett Kissel during his “Hometown Homecoming Concert” in June 2016 in St. Paul, Alberta and country singer Tim Hus on her 18th birthday in March of 2016. Other highlights include being a part of the “ATB Road to the Main-Stage” program from 2014-16 and placing in the top five each year. She also took part in the “Global Country” program from 2012-15 where she flew to Nashville TN in 2013 to represent Canada in the 'North American Country Music Awards International’ competition, bringing home three trophies for Canada. Additionally, Cassidy was presented with the “Dianne Branson Rising Star Award” from the Alberta Men and Women of Country Music in 2013.  

Giving back to her community has always been an integral part of Cassidy’s music and life. She can often be found sharing her talents with the seniors of her community, performing in lodges and nursing homes for special occasions such as Christmas events and birthday parties. It is through her music that Cassidy hopes the seniors in our communities will know that they are valued and appreciated.

Songwriting is a relatively newfound love and passion for Cassidy. It is only within her last two years in university that she has truly blossomed as a songwriter. All of Cassidy’s songs are fuelled by an honest, heartfelt passion and a sense of insistent truth. She is a fan of simplicity and makes it a priority to use her songs to tell stories. Cassidy hopes others who listen to her music will feel a connection to the lyrics and find their own meaning within her carefully crafted words and thoughtful progressions.
