Growing up in the Prairies, singer-songwriter Cassidy Mann has been singing since she could talk.
By entwining her acoustic roots with gentle electronic textures, Mann finds her true voice on the new single, “Election Night.” As a lyricist, she often reshapes a small moment into a powerful and poetic song that feels both personal and relatable. The lyrics focus on a couple that moved beyond just friends but ultimately ended as strangers.
“I was watching people around me change or come into themselves as a direct result of social justice movements,” explains Mann. “It was becoming really clear what mattered to me when it came to morals, values and the kind of people I wanted in my life. I thought it would be really interesting to use that timeline as a sort of framework for a tragic love story. I hadn’t heard that period of time talked about in that context and it was fascinating to me so I did my best to write about it.”
