Artist Spotlight: Ryan Cassata

We recently had the pleasure of getting to know award winning singer-songwriter, actor, performer, writer and LGBTQ activist Ryan Cassata. 

Ryan Cassata is based in Los Angeles and has been making waves in the indie music scene for his incredibly unique and alluring brand of music. It is an unfortunate reality in the current world of music where it seems as though fearless, ambitious artists are becoming more and more rare and undiscovered. This is mostly due to an unapologetic desire by most new-coming artists to shamelessly reach into existing successful markets, void of any integrity, and follow an incredibly safe musical formula of commercially appealing and catchy tunes. Powerful messaging and honest content in music has been sadly lost due to this trend; it is growing more and more apparent that the main driving force behind many new “artists” entering the industry is simply a thirst for fame and money.

Ryan Cassata makes no attempt to conform to these market tastes and trends— and this is precisely what makes him such a respectable and remarkable act.

This brilliant artist acts as a marvelous innovator in the indie-world, and he effectively channels his deep, emotive, and resonating vision through an impressive display of creative songwriting and inventive musical arrangements. With his honest, fun, and infectious tunes; Ryan Cassata has reignited the approach that music, as an artistic medium, should transcend the label of “commodity” and become something much more immersive and engaging. This artist is unapologetically committed to supporting his inspiring vision with his tools of artistic expression, rather than exploiting them for the cash-grabbing gimmick that they can so easily become.

Ryan Cassata, in my honest opinion, has the potential to go down as one of those rare artists whom helped change the musical landscape, and will fondly remembered among some of the most groundbreaking independent acts.

Listen to amazing new Single “Light Up”: 

Listening through Ryan Cassata’s catalog was truly an engaging and worthwhile experience. This differs from most recent indie releases in that it is fearlessly ambitious and unapologetically unique and difficult to label perfectly. Each track oozes with integrity, honesty, and emotional awareness. Not only is each track polished and meticulously crafted, but it is sequenced to perfection, leaving the listener wanting more. We can definitely see this climbing the ranks and becoming a household name while inspiring a new generation of independent artists. Not only does he have the ability to craft infectious hooks and melodies, but he does so with a remarkably unique blending of genres and evident care for messaging and content.

Listen to previous hit “Virginia, Pick Up the Phone”:
