Robinson Treacher is an engaging, high-energy performing songwriter with a powerful voice and unique guitar stylings. Passionate, gritty and soulful, he has drawn comparisons to David Gray, Richie Havens and Van Morrison. He seeks to involve his listeners in the spirited orchestration of emotion that has been meticulously tempered into his songs.
“Like a tent revival shouter rooted in gospel and blues – a mix of silk and gravel – the sound is coming from a core somewhere deep,” wrote Richard Cuccaro in a Jan. 2015 Acoustic Live! in New York City cover story entitled Robinson Treacher – Soul Conjurer.
Not one to be pigeonholed into one particular genre, Robinson takes fibers from many — from the bluesy soul of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke to the weathered back- country of The Band and Hank Williams — and weaves them into his own distinct musical tapestry. An eclectic songwriter whose style can be emotionally dramatic, Robinson views his music as being at the crossroads of blues, folk and Americana.
His latest EP, Born, was named Best EP in the roots/Americana/singer-songwriter category in the 2018 Independent Music Awards. Robinson has performed at venues throughout the New York metro area and across the country. A two-time Audience Choice Award recipient at Virginia’s Lyric on the Lake Festival, He also has been a Falcon Ridge-Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase performer and has showcased his talents at a number of other festivals.
As the lead singer and creative engine of the group Antigone Rising during its most successful years (2000-2008), Cassidy Catanzaro sold more than a million records. She has toured with The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and The Allmans; and she has appeared on The Tonight Show, A&E’s Breakfast With The Arts and on VH1 as a commentator on the popular I Love… series. Cassidy was voted by ESPN as “One To Watch,” along with other notable up-and-coming celebrities.
Her composition “For You” was recently featured on the Demi Lovato album, Confident. Cassidy has composed songs for Shinedown and Dorothy guitarist Nick Perry’s solo projects, Mount Holly and Underground Thieves, as well as secured song placements in film and television. She has used her voice as an advocate of human rights and environmental issues for decades and also is a certified Yogi.
A graduate of UCB for Improvisational Comedy, she has acted on stage, film and TV. Cassidy has performed with symphony orchestras across North America in the show, Women Rock. Her latest solo album, All Good Things, is slated for release this year.
