Content creator and recording artist Cass Cardelle has been making good use of her time while in quarantine. With the pandemic’s imposed restrictions on outdoor activities around the globe, Cass has tapped into her art and improved her craft to stay productive.
In the few months that people have been asked to stay indoors, Cass has collaborated with several established brands and has been working on her music. She recently dropped the music video for her original and dance-inducing song, “LYIN’.” The video carries a playful vibe hinting at the artist’s true personality.
“I am originally from Boston so people have told me I have a more humble and natural attitude than most people in LA,” Cass shares, “I like to always be myself unless I have an audition for some dream role in a movie.”
Cass got her start in the music industry when she made the move to Los Angeles, California. At the time, she was mainly focused on searching for acting opportunities and only doing music on the side. In her time in the entertainment industry, Cass faced some rejection like many but then got to experience being on a CMT dating show in search of love.
On the show, Cass’s interest in music was revealed to the awed public. She later on went to Japan to perform her music and was courted by several offers to work with brands via social media and print modeling. Cass juggled mounting schedules and was able to grow as an individual and an artist from the experience.
As she was on the rise and on her way to the stars, an unfortunate incident occurred that cut Cass’s flight short. “Two years ago, I was recovering from a severe injury I had where I fractured eight bones and had about a five month recovery,” Cass reveals. Bed-ridden, Cass could not work on her craft and still gets anxious about the thought of the incident.
The artist was unable to work in retail, do photoshoots, attend castings, travel, or make good music, which were all hobbies turned jobs that she had always loved doing. Despite the temporary halt in her career, Cass remained positive and, once the medical staff had given her the green light, immediately got back to work.
“One thing has led to another and everything happened for a reason, thus far,” Cass says. Wanting to continue living a creative life and igniting her growth as an artist, Cass is currently designing graphic T-shirts that she will be releasing. A percentage of her expected profit from the collection will be donated to help rebuild Lebanon or to another charity in need.
In half a decade, Cass sees herself pursuing her dreams in modeling, art, and performing her music worldwide. By then, she would be successful enough to make a meaningful impact on more charities of her choice and serve as an inspiration to young girls across the globe to be strong and independent.
Through the work that she has done before and during the quarantine, Cass hopes to take a significant first step in becoming a positive example to motivate people to follow their dreams and lend a hand to those in need regardless of any set backs, rejection, or judgment.
