Interview: Cassadee Pope

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/25/12)
We've posted a few times about how Cassadee Pope, formerly of Hey Monday, has started a solo career. She posted up her first song the other day, a cover of "Torn," and we recently had a chance to ask her a few questions about the new project, and her goals going forward. We tried to pick some questions that you guys would want to know. You can check out the answers here.
From the InterviewI do want to be on pop radio and tour with big pop artists. But my stuff is still edgy and leaning towards the rock side of things. So it'll be a cool mixture of the HM sound and the mainstream sound. I don't know what's going to "set me apart" from the rest. I've always found that question to be a bit awkward. I feel like that's the listeners question to answer. I'm just going to be myself and hope that it will catch on.

What is this "edgy" that she is talking about?

Edgy in the sense that her work is always on the cusp of being dropped by the label...

Anyone who says they want their music to sound like Michelle Branch will always warrant at least a cursory listen.

So, essentially, it's just gonna be Hey Monday without... well, being called Hey Monday?

I wouldn't really call it that edgy though.

If this solo album does sound similar to old Katy Perry I bet its going to be a pretty good record. Cassadee is a good singer, but I have a feeling that the production on her new stuff is going to blow.
