Cassie Steele is Back! Well, Kind of.

My dreams are coming true. On August 29, at Room 5 in LA, Cassie Steele gave a live performance of new music material. Five of the songs were originals, one was an Imagine Dragons cover, and the last was “Summer Nights” from her Destructo Doll album. Of course I didn’t attend the show, but watching it on Youtube was close enough. The video quality wasn’t that great, but the audio made up for it. With just a band in the background, her voice is in the spotlight, and she sounds amazing. It’s similar to what she has done on her first two albums, which is good to hear considering that for a short time she was going down the pop road with the duo KaraMel and the single Shape Shifter.

Now, there’s not much information on when there will be an album release, or if there’s even an album in the works. But hopefully these live shows are a hint towards the former. Her next show will be in West Hollywood at the Whisky a Go Go on September 18th at 7 PM, you know, if you just happen to fly across the country. I’ll be on the lookout for those videos posted on Youtube soon after.

Check out some of the performances below!
