Zone Records recording artist, Cassandra Maze, is a fiery performer and looper-extraordinaire who transfixes audiences with her exclusive fusion of alternative dance-pop.
Maze released her debut single “Wait” earlier this year, bringing good things to the ears of her fans. The song was inspired in part by the expression, good things come to those who wait, but as Maze puts it, “when it comes to chasing your dreams, waiting doesn't exactly give you legs.” Co-written by Maze and Tanner Aguiar, and produced by Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Van Damsel), “Wait” kicks off with a gritty, heart-pumping intro and culminates in a powerful, anthemic chorus that beckons listeners to sing along and take home the message of “I can do this – what am I waiting for?”
In support of the new single, Maze toured eastern and western Canada, astounding fans with her powerful voice and signature one-woman-show. She brought her live
looping prowess to prominent venues, such as the historic Horseshoe Tavern in downtown Toronto, and gave acoustic performances on Global Toronto's Morning Show and on Roundhouse Radio's Live From Railtown. Since the tour, “Wait” has created a buzz online, garnering attention from many popular Spotify playlisters and receiving placement on new playlists regularly.
“Wait” is a sign of more good things to come. It's the first cut off Maze's upcoming 6-song EP, “Velocity”, which is set for release on October 6th, 2017. The new EP features more tracks produced by WCMA and Juno award-winner, Ryan Worsley, as well as collaborations with the WCMA award-winning dance-R&B trio, DiRTY RADiO. With this release, Maze proves that in music, as in life, opposites attract. She crafts her signature alt-pop sound from diametrical musical elements that work in harmony. The music is congruently emotional and physical—it will ensnare you in a daydream and it will draw you to the dancefloor. Her lyrics are soulfelt, yet the story truly comes to life when it's combined with visceral dance beats and gritty synth layers. The result is something fresh, vital and characteristically Cassandra Maze.
In the not too distant past, Maze toured Australia and the South Pacific, sang backup and played keyboards for Victoria Duffield, and provided vocal session work for Devin Townsend. She is a Creative BC funded artist and a 2016 CBC Top 10 Regional finalist who has had her songs featured in motion pictures. Maze's credentials continue to grow, as does her audience and her music.
