Singer-songwriter Cas Cleo has immersed herself in the world of music from a young age, always passionate about lyrics and crafting them to fit her own sound. She began her songwriting journey by using phrases and melodies from songs she had heard, and manipulating them into something that was entirely unique. She eventually made a move to Nashville, where she became a regular at the Listening Room Café, and now spends her time collaborating with other talent on singles that are set to be released in 2020.

Cas Cleo’s most recent release, “Ghosts”, is a folksy and calming track, with a slower tempo and minimal instrumentation. Her voice truly shines behind the simple acoustics.  This allows emphasis on the serene and meaningful lyrics. Cas Cleo’s voice is light and airy, with a smooth tone that is a pleasure to listen to. Nashville’s influences on her music are apparent within the soft acoustics.  The lyrics speak to the listener, a characteristic that comes with many country & folk songs. Cas Cleo demonstrates her gift of lyricism with beautiful lines that allow listeners to appreciate the things that life has given you. She sings “being alive is not the things you do, but the moments with the people who love you”.  This song will resonate with her listeners and form a connection with them that goes beyond the music itself.

Hi Cas Cleo, and welcome to BuzzMusic! What is your favorite part about “Ghosts”, and what would you say stands out about it compared to your previous tracks? Ghosts is definitely the happiest song I have ever released, which is part of the reason I released it. I was really on the fence about whether or not I should release it in the beginning just because it felt so different than the other music I had put out. After sending it to a few close friends and family they wondered why I even would question the decision to put it out. It’s really sort of intimidating to release songs that don’t fit with what I usually put out, but it was exciting to see the response at the same time.
