REVIEW BY JMM
Prepare for the seismic arrival of Australian sensation Cassidy Paris and her debut album, “New Sensation,” set to hit the airwaves on December 8. Brimming with raw fervour, Paris emerges as a fierce, young force in the rock realm, blending the timeless essence of classic hard rock with a contemporary zeal, poised to captivate a new generation of music enthusiasts.
Infused with the soul of rock legends and driven by the influence of powerful female trailblazers like Lzzy Hale, Joan Jett, Pink, Pat Benatar, and Avril Lavigne, the 20-year-old Paris stands on the cusp of a musical revolution. Her journey has already seen the triumphant release of two sold-out EPs, “Broken Hearted” and “Flirt,” complemented by an array of electrifying stage performances across Australia. Now, anticipation mounts for her solo debut on the global stage, courtesy of Frontiers Music Srl.
Beyond the infectious melodies, Paris’s music carries a resounding message, notably evident in tracks like ‘Stand,’ a poignant anthem advocating self-empowerment for young women. Her commitment extends beyond the studio, actively engaging in anti-bullying campaigns through school performances in Melbourne and aligning herself with global initiatives such as ‘Metalheads Against Bullying.’
The imminent release of ‘New Sensation’ promises an evolution in Paris’s musical identity. Featuring tracks like ‘Danger,’ ‘RNR Hearts,’ ‘Here I Am,’ ‘Walking on Fire,’ and ‘Midnight Desire,’ the album’s tracklisting offers a thrilling ride through adrenaline-pumping anthems and soul-stirring ballads, culminating in just under 41 minutes of pure musical dynamism.
Bolstered by an ensemble of accomplished musicians – including the guitar prowess of Steve Janevski and Dave Graham, Alessandro Del Vecchio’s multi-instrumental talent, Mirko De Maio’s rhythmic drumming, and the backing vocals of mentor Paul Laine – ‘New Sensation’ embodies Paris’s unwavering passion, boundless energy, and undeniable musical genius.
In essence, Cassidy Paris’s ‘New Sensation’ doesn’t just showcase her musical prowess; it encapsulates her mission to inspire and empower audiences globally. With this debut, she assumes the mantle as the torchbearer for a new generation of rock enthusiasts, poised to make an indelible mark on the world stage.
Cassidy Paris isn’t just the next in line; she is the embodiment of the future of rock—bold, unapologetic, and ready to set the world on fire.
