Award winning singer-songwriter Michael Cassidy performs live at The Rockfield Centre with tracks from his debut album 'Wandering As Water'.
Michael Cassidy’s ear-pleasing brogue Scottish voice has always been front and centre of his music, and with I Am Free, the opening track and lead single from his new album, he returns with just that–voice front and centre. Complimented superbly by soaring harmonies, he ponders the nature of beauty, life, and life lived through the journey of a metamorphosing caterpillar. The track rouses warmly as a solitary organ drone builds beneath Michael’s musing voice, reconciling life’s plans gone awry with the need for patience. With producer Chris McCrory (Catholic Action, Siobhan Wilson, wojtek the bear, Annie Booth) at the helm the track undergoes the aforementioned metamorphosis as violin swirls the air, each note hanging and gliding; a butterfly free to fly. One further verse sees Michael exclaim, joyfully and thankfully, “I am free”, a sentiment anyone constrained by their past can share
