Named by folk-blog Timber and Steel as ‘Janis Joplin and Ben Harper’s love-child’, Cass Eager’s mix of raw blues, husky soul and lighthearted ditties are all punctuated with her unique whisky-soaked vocals.
Internationally-renowned but defiantly grassroots, Cass is one of those rare artists that’s mastered everything from the foot-stomping blues to a sensual slow burner. She’s been called ‘one of the best female singers in Australia’ by Richard Glover (ABC), and Diesel claims she could ‘sing the phone book to you and you wouldn’t get bored’.
Cass has entertained Australian troops from The Middle East to East Timor. She’s toured the US and Canada – solo; alongside Ash Grunwald; and with Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo; ex-Wilco). She’s performed with Michael Franti & Spearhead and for Prince Harry among others.
A finalist for Best Group and Best Female Vocalist in the Australian Blues ‘Chain’ Awards and Best Blues/Roots Artist in the MusicOz Awards, Cass’ EP ‘Down On My Knees’ was voted ‘Top 10 Album’ of the year in Rhythms Magazine.
