Cass Dillon is originally from Long Island, New York, where he met and worked with legendary musical icon, Billy Joel. Cass was chosen by Billy Joel to record and perform the song "Christmas in Fallujah" which Mr. Joel wrote after years of retirement from songwriting. All proceeds (over $500,000) from the song went to "Homes for the Troops". Cass has also been seen opening for other notable artists Gavin DeGraw and One Republic and has performed on several network TV shows, including Katie Couric on CBS, FOX and Friends Morning Show on FOX, The Early Show News on CBS, and The Second Cup Cafe on FOX. Cass has also performed accompanying other artists like Alexa Ray Joel on The Howard Stern Show and with several other artists on The View, Good Morning America, and TED.
Cass is a multi-instrumentalist and producer as well as an acclaimed songwriter who recently was chosen by Billboard Magazine as one of their favorite unsigned songwriters. Lately, he has produced several studio records of different genres due for release next year along with several songs used in films and TV. Cass's latest song for film can be heard in the new romantic comedy "My Man is a Loser" starring John Stamos and Michael Rapaport, directed by Mike Young, which is expected to hit theaters later in 2014.
