Cassidy Mann Releases New Song “Stop A Heart”
- Canadian singer-songwriter Cassidy Mann has released a new song “Stop A Heart”, following “Election Night” released back in September.
Cassidy Mann wrote the song and co-produced it with the same producer Roman Clarke as the previous song, who also worked with her on the 2020 EP “A Memory”.
She explained of the song, “There have been times where I've sat on the feeling of knowing I have to end a relationship – trying to figure out how to minimize the damage – but that is just a form of procrastination. I wrote my second single, "Stop A Heart," at the exact moment that I knew I had to make this decision. This song is built around a lot of loops, symbolizing that repetitive cycle of thoughts to make sure you're making the right call, going over and over it again in your mind.”
- She continued, “I've been trying to write the truth but it's hard when it's just a point of view, interpretation. I was obsessed with Joan Didion at the time of writing this song. She talks a lot about truth and memory in her writing and I was thinking about those concepts – how noble the notion of 'writing the truth' is, but how it's ultimately impossible no matter how hard you try. At the end of the day, everyone has their own perspective and feelings. Heartbreak happens to everybody and you can't control it, you just have to feel it and know that eventually it will pass.”
Growing up in the Prairies, Cassidy Mann has been singing since she could talk. Her parents bought her a guitar as a birthday present when she was 9. By 14, she started taking songwriting more seriously and her emerging talent led to a nomination for Aboriginal Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
She released the EP “A Memory” in 2020.
