For Immediate Release:

May 27th, 2019 (Ottawa, ON)

Andrew Cassara’s latest release “Dancing Mono” combines the artful R&B sound reminiscent of a Justin Timberlake ballad, with the rich vocal production and energy usually associated with artists like Adam Levine. This pop release speaks to the push and pull of complicated relationships, and how sometimes we need to be alone in order to grow.  This latest single continues to represent Andrew’s development as a true contributor to the pop/funk music genre.

The new single will be available for pre-order through SGMGroupArtists / AWAL world wide on May 31st, 2019 and for full streaming and downloads on June 7th 2019. Stay tuned for release date in South Korea as it will be announced soon.

CMW – Andrew Cassara Showcase

For Immediate Release:

May 13th, 2019 (Ottawa, ON)

Andrew Cassara and The Pulse performed this past week at Canadian Music Week in Toronto at the Painted Lady. The venue was packed for the performance, and Andrew and his team gave a high energy, bang on performance. The venue staff were amazing, and overall the evening was a huge success.

The SGMGroupArtists team attended the conference, the event was very well organized, and a great opportunity to network with other music organizations from all over the world. We would like to formally thank CMW for the opportunity to showcase one of our acts, and of course we would extend a very warm thank you to OMIC (Ottawa Music Industry Coalition) for the funding support to help make the event a success for us. Thank you for the support if you attended the event and we look forward to the many business opportunities that we expect to come from this conference!
