Kassidy Jewell – Little Shadows (Wav)
Merri Winter, a Tasmanian born Victorian resident, has had a long and varied musical career both in Australia and overseas, including 5 years based in Dublin. She has been a member of several bands such as The Shiralees, the Tony Cornish Unity Band and she toured with the Tony Martin Band.
“I was delighted to recently work with the legendary Bill Chambers as he produced all 13 tracks for my new album, ‘Moving On’. “I was even more excited when he generously offered me the opportunity to record two of his unrecorded compositions for inclusion on my album. ‘Sweetest Sound’, the first single released off the album, is one of those two songs and it was co-written with Sara Cotton.” – Merri Winter.
She is having an album launch in Portarlington on August 14th and again in Shepparton on September 22nd at the Cricketers Arms in Mooroopna.
Kassidy, still only 14, has loved singing since the day she could talk, appreciating all genres of music but with a real love for country music and the stories behind the songs.
Kassidy never dreamed that being crowned the ‘Junior Winner’ at the 2021 Man From Snowy River Festival, in Corryong, would start a roller coaster of events resulting in a chance meeting with her now mentor, Shaza Leigh OWB & Lindsay Butler OAM from the renowned LBS Studios.
“Little Shadows” was written by Kas and Shaza during the first mentoring session to record as part of her development package. It is a reflective personal story about Kassidy’s beautiful relationship with her Dad, his Little Shadow and how those special connections change in time as children need to grow and find their own way in this world. Kassidy performs this song, her real-life story, with warmth and sweetness combined with strength and conviction. With her infectious smile and vivacious personality, Kassidy is undoubtedly a true shining star of the future in country music.
