Cassidy Dickens

Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival, Cassidy Dickens, Songwriter, SMSWF, Gatlinburg TNBreathing new life into ancient motifs, West Virginian singer songwriter Cassidy Dickens will shatter your heart, stitch you right back up again, and fill the room with light and laughter in the course of a single tune. Merging the sincerity of folk icons like Patty Griffin and Gillian Welch with the feminine edge of artists like Jewel, Alanis Morissette, and Natalie Merchant, Cassidy offers a fresh, whimsical, almost-too-honest perspective on classic subjects like love, home, and nostalgia. Her light-heartedly introspective lyrics and lilting, sultry voice take listeners on an emotional road trip through raw heartache, humorous deprecation, and hopeful reflection.

Cassidy began her journey as a professional musician when she was only 12. Having played up and down the east and west coasts of the U.S. for more than a decade, Cassidy is thrilled to call Music City (Nashville, TN) her present home.
