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.
