Alex Crossland and Cassie Chilton together are Cass & Crossland. And in their latest folk shimmer, ‘Adeline’, the duo casts a big and comforting net of love – for love.
Said the duo: “‘Adeline’ doesn’t know where she fits in. Neither do we. As new songwriters, ‘Adeline’ is a reflection on how doing what everyone thinks you’re supposed to do doesn’t always make you happy.”
A personal story, that we all can relate to. A story which at points in our lives, we’d had to recognize and endure. And it’s a story of a soul (in this case two souls), doing their best possible to live as satisfyingly as they can, with the whims of the universe, as they seem to be.
Struggles and self doubt, is an inevitable art of our existence. And in ‘Adeline’, the supple folk construction, delivers an impact of solidarity and unity, for all of us grab ahold.
Phoenix Arizona based, the band continues their new endeavor with beautiful milestones.
FYI. Their mission statement for the project is: “Drink LaCroix, wear your heart and your songs on your sleeve, and give a damn.”

Happy Monday! 💛 We just wanted to take a minute to introduce ourselves to our followers. We’re Cassie and Alex, two Phoenix-based artists that have been active in the local theatre and music scenes for the better part of the last decade. We met performing in the Arizona premier of the musical Once in 2019, which inspired this project. We both play multiple instruments but you’ll usually catch Alex on guitar and Cassie on the violin. We like harmonizing, long walks on the beach, and are very upset that Taco Bell™️ took potatoes off their menu. We try to live by a simple motto: drink LaCroix, wear your heart and your songs on your sleeve, and give a damn. Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement. New music coming soon!
