In The Spotlight

Cassidy Mackenzie – “Leave Me Alone”

Hailing from Vancouver, this Canadian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist began taking violin lessons at the age of 4 and soon added guitar, bass, drums and piano. She studied songwriting at Belmont University in Nashville, lent her voice to various EDM tracks and posted covers on TikTok. Inspired by Avril Lavigne, Paramore and Halsey, she debuted her own unique pop blend on “Wish” in 2019.

Singing about being haunted by the memories of an ex-lover, her new single is a clever fusion of eclectic musical influences. Opening with groovy guitar chords, her crisp and powerful pop vocal chops soon start coasting the soundwaves. Joined by a taut hiphop rhythm and a slight country-esque vibe, all elements merge together into an infectious and anthemic tune, filled with sonic attitude.
