Fred Cassidy is a musician, singer, composer, journalist and filmmaker.
Music, for him, is a means to experience different states of being... joy, melancholy, memory, fantasy, beauty, movement, desire or simply pure fun.
The piano is what he writes on. After Scott Joplin, Spike Jones, Bernard Herrmann, Kurt Weill, Stephen Foster, Eric Satie... his influences are primarily the singer songwriters of the 70's : Todd Rungren, Harry Nilsson, early Elton John, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, George Harrison, Randy Newman, Stevie Wonder, Laura Nyro, Joe Raposo, John Lennon, Curtis Mayfield...
His new music is a very personal expression of what he is experiencing in his life... with a neo-70's flair.
