In 2012, Cassi was announced as the face of Children's clothing brand 'Pumpkin Patch' for their 2012/2013 Summer Campaign. She recorded two songs for the brand, which were used in TV Commercials and advertising compaigns across Australia & New Zealand. The songs were placed on iTunes with the proceeds going to chairty Cure Kids. Whilst Cassi was in NZ filming video clips for the songs, she was fortunate to be made a Cure Kids Ambassador for the day, and meet a gorgeous little girl who lived in Hospital.
On returning she wrote a heart felt song about what she wishes for all children who need a little hope in their lives. This song is called 'Wish Upon a Star. Since then, Cassi has continued to write and record. In 2013 Cassi was a finalist in the Australian Songwriting Association National Songwriting Awards, with a song she co-wote with Daniele Blakey 'Brave Forever', and was also a finalist in the Tamworth Songwriters Association National Awards for her song 'Footprints' In January 2014, Cassi was fortunate to be accepted into the CMAA Academy of Country Music in Tamworth NSW.
She attended a week long course, and was mentored by many music industry professionals, where she learnt a great deal of what it takes to be a country music artist, from songwriting to performance workshops. She went on to graduate with a concert at Blazes Showroom in Tamworth, and then stayed on to perform at different venues at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. This was an amazing time for Cassi, meeting some of her idols, and learning so much along the way. She has come home inspired and ready to keep on with her dreams of writing and recording music. Along with her musical interests, Cassi also has a love for acting, appearing in many short films and music videos for other artists, and more recently, Australian feature film 'The Umbrella' due out this year. 2014 holds many exciting things for Cassi.
She will continue to do her charity work for Make-A-Wish and SunnyKids charities, something very close to Cassi's heart, and will continue to use her music to help as many people as she can.
