Dead End Charlie in 2010

July 12, 2010

Band: Dead End Charlie
Genre: Rock
Home: Chatham-Kent
Year: 2010

Members
Frank E. Fitz
: Lead Vocals, Guitar
Aug Polowick: Lead Guitar
Paul Demars: Drums, Backing Vocals
Dwayne Purdy: Bass, Backing Vocals.

The group put out a Demo CD in 2008 that was a good solid rock record. This time around, Paul exchanges his lead vocal duties to play the drums where he feels most at home. So who is the new singer? No problem… the group scooped up Phil Smith (A.K.A. Franklin Edward Fitz) from one of the best local underground bands in Chatham “The Grave Misunderstanding“.
 The groups new found talent, and fresh creative juices means nothing but good things for them right now.

Note: Paul also currently drums for the band Finding Core.
Aug also performs with The Southwest Blues Review.

Cassandra Vasik – Feels Like Home (1993)

July 18, 2009

Click to enlarge

Artist: Cassandra Vasik
Also known as Cassandra Leigh
Release: 1993 – Feels Like Home
Genre: Country / Pop
Home : Blenheim Ontario Canada

   Cassandra Vasik is a Canadian country singer/songwriter from Blenheim, Ontario. Signed to Epic Records between 1990 and 2000, she released three studio albums for the label. In that same time span, she charted eleven singles on the Canadian country charts.

Winner of two Juno Awards.

   Her second album fuses a traditional sound — like the Patsy Cline-ish opener “Sadly Mistaken” — with a modern and somewhat mysterious edge and look. The best songs feature an organic blend of acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, pedal steel and harmonica. Unfortunately, several others, including the lush, monster ballad “Almost Like You Cared,” resort to that dreaded synth-strings crutch. Still, every nuance of Vasik’s delivery suggests “contemporary woman,” sensitive and introspective but also self-assured and firmly in control of her own destiny. ~ Roch Parisien, All Music Guide.

   All fourteen songs were written by Tim Thorney and Erica Ehm (with an assist by Ms. Vasik on several) who also produced the album. Erica Ehm was making a name for herself as MuchMusic’s (and Canada’s) first female VJ.
  Highlights include Fortune Smiled On Me, a duet with Russell De Carle who was the lead singer of Canadian Country band, Prairie Oyster, Stand Your Ground, a fiddle-drenched two stepper and Lavender Hill, a beautiful waltz.

Tracks
1. Sadly Mistaken
2. Fortune Smiled On Me
3. The Man I Never Knew
4. Stand Your Ground
5. Almost Like You Cared
6. Lavender Hill
7. Afraid To Drive
8. She Talks
9. Roll Like A Wheel
10. As Far As The Story Goes
11. Sometimes A Harbour
12. The Parade
13. I Can Forgive But I Can’t Forget
14. Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

 Note: This year (1993) Cassandra returned from a tour that entertained U.S. troops in Germany, France, Israel, Egypt and more.
