“"Cassandra creates a kind of newish Americana and singer-songwriter music that fans of Neko Case and Kathleen Edwards might like. Her songs are earnest explorations of relationships, love, and whatever exists in between and create an interesting juxtaposition with her seemingly whimsical personality and lighthearted exterior."”
Cassandra House is a Indie-Folk singer & songwriter hailing from Long Island, NY. Her passionate instrumentation and introspective lyrics have been a crowd favorite for fans of original music on the island & across the U.S. Cassandra's music has been described as comparable to the likes of Patty Griffin, Brandi Carlile & Kathleen Edwards.
Cassandra has been seen on stage with the likes of Amy Helm, Todd Schaeffer (of Railroad Earth), G.Love, Jen Chapin, Shannon McNally, Lucy Kaplansky, Andy Falco (of the Infamous Stringdusters) and Papadosio. Cassandra has played The Great South Bay Music Festival for 6 years (where she has shared a stage in the past with Railroad Earth, Coling Hay, Graham Nash, and Rusted Root), Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Resonance Music Festival, Bradstock, The American Music Festival, and Brooklyn Bowl to rave reviews.
Her newest album, 'The Roam' is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, CD Baby & on the 'STORE' link on this website.
Praise for "the roam"
"House's bio says that she has shared the stage with artists such as Lucy Kaplansky, G. Love, Amy Helm, Jen Chapin and Todd Scheaffer (of Railroad Earth). I haven't seen her live show, but if it's anywhere near as good as her recorded efforts here on The Roam, I expect to see her go from a regional artist to a national headlining artist sometime within the next two years.
This album is that good."

"House is a chameleon in the best sense of the word, able to transition seamlessly from gentle acoustic songstress at album’s open to belting blues singer in its final moments. The Roam is well put-together from start to finish, with solid songwriting, a crack band, excellent production and House’s very pretty and deceptively powerful voice at the center of it all. Cassandra House clearly has a story to tell and The Roam suggests she’ll have many more opportunities to tell it. "
