‘I Remember’ is the debut single from REST ACRES, the solo musical project of Toronto-based drummer/producer/songwriter Joel Cassady. But the fabulously arranged single doesn’t sound like the start of a project. Its waves of emotions soundly balance, catapults the listener into a nuanced and decadent future.
Drawing inspiration from modern electronic luminaries like Flume, ODESZA, Louis the Child, Big Wild and Jai Wolf, REST ACRES will see Joel working with a host of guest vocalists and pulling from the diverse array of musical influences that have helped shape his journey as an artist.
Joel is best known for his work as a member of Canadian Pop mainstay Walk Off the Earth, a group that he’s been a member of for nearly 10 years. The track features the vocals of fellow Canadian singer/songwriter Kate Carswell, who co-wrote the song with Cassady and recently began releasing music under the name “Freida Mari”.
