Based in Sydney,
A somewhat unsuspecting lady of the limelight, Cass Hopetoun stumbled upon her talent for song after a school friend ‘dragged her along to the choir’ as a young student from Sydney’s nearby Blue Mountain range.
Idolising the likes of Delta Goodrem as a child, Cass began to learn to play the piano and take up regular singing lessons. Naturally, mimicry turned into personal growth and an exploration through the world of music, into musical theatre and an eventual landing in the genre of Country Music, where she now resides. Her voice is one that bares traces to the likes of some of the great country singers like Dolly Parton and Brandy Clark.
Her debut single ‘Shots’ was released in March 2020 and was co-written with Country artist Blake Dantier and produced by Matt Fell at Love Hz studios. It is a song about a coming of age and quite literally refers to the relatable activity of drinking ‘Shots’ with friends.
The passion for the music is a tangible thing in Cass’s writing and singing. She recently attended the 2020 Tamworth Country Music Festival and took home 1st place in the annual talent quest.
An artist with a firm message about resilience and aiming for your dreams in spite of what adversity life might throw your way is the message Cass is conveying. You’ll be hearing it as the year unfolds, and if the young singer has her way, well into the years that follow.
