Cass Dillon said on Oct. 31 in an exclusive interview with New York Concert Examiner Eric Holden that fans have been quite receptive to his new single, "I Love You," which was inspired by the passing of his manager's father.
Dillon has been quite busy touring behind the single, but he kindly took a few minutes from his schedule to talk about his budding music career. Here's what he had to say:
Q. Please talk a little bit about your newest project.
Dillon: I recently released a new single titled "I Love You". It was written and inspired by the passing of my manager's father. It's a bit of a wake up call, as it is written in the song, 'we are here for a very short time'. Fans have been very receptive to this new single. It's a bit of a departure, stylistically, but the organic folk pop sound seems to be flowing through me effortlessly.
Q. Good stuff. Any plans to tour behind the single in the months ahead?
Dillon: No immediate touring plans. I'll be playing local shows in NYC while I'm finishing up my next EP.
Q. How would you describe the sound of your new release?
Dillon: As I mentioned before, it's a folky-indie-pop sound. It's very organically produced. A folk feel and groove, and indie production, with pop melodies and sensibilities.
Q. How has your music evolved since you first started playing?
Dillon: My music has evolved quite a bit. I love many different genres of music, and I produce music for other artists in many of those different genres. So, I've taken my singer/songwriter tunes and have stylistically dressed them up differently in the past, from Rock to R&B.
Q. Awesome. So where can fans check you out online?
