CASSANDRA (born Cassandra Eileen Kubinski in Hartford, CT) is a songwriter, singer, actress, producer, and yogi. Her latest release is her 4th album JUST BEING MYSELF (produced by Edd Kalehoff, the composer/producer behind the music of Monday Night Football, The View, Good Morning America, the YES Network , Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, and artists like Faith Hill, Britney Spears, and Sarah Vaughn). "This ones more cinematic than my previous albums, and more fun," offers Cassandra. "Each song is like a mini movie, and my writing is more honest than Ive ever been before" And whether sheâ€™s writing about love, bittersweet memories, partying, air travel, or the Big Apple, that real world honesty meets a dramatic, sensual swirl of cinematic images and metaphors influenced by her earliest musical experiences: Billy Joel and other songwriters, Disney movies, musical theatre, classical and jazz. Several music videos have already been released, including Just Being Myself, the classical/dance/pop anthem of being awesome, and Windblown Girl, a country-tinged romance story. The album also features pop/jazz trumpeter Chris Botti on the lush, Paris inspired number "Je Taime", and a reimagined version of Lady Gagas "Bad Romance."
KI-YO made his debut in Japan when he was 17. His third single "The Only One" has sold over 400,000 copies and his album "Ill Be There" was number 7 in the charts its first week out. That same year, he received the "ALL JAPAN REQUEST AWARD", and the "JFN LISTENERs AWARD". Currently, his total album sales reached over 1,000,000 copies.
KI-YO moved to New York in 2010 and became a lead singer of the "Harlem Japanese Gospel Choir", which took first place, out of 40,000 entries, in the McDonalds Gospel Festival in 2010, the first time in history for an internationally assembled Gospel group. After their win, the Choir was invited to perform as the first ever, Japanese guest performers at the Apollo Theater.
