Four Chambers Official Release!

Posted 19 Nov 2013 in Blog

I’m pleased to announce that my latest EP, Four Chambers will be released and ready for purchase on December 3rd! Stay tuned for links to online retailers such as iTunes, CD Baby, and Bandcamp.

Four Chambers

As I narrated in my EPK (which you can watch here), Four Chambers features four songs, each with a distinct emotional quality. “Still Afraid of the Dark” deals with fear, “Doubt” discusses the very sensation it was named after, “World Gone Quiet” expresses sentiments of hope, and “Closer to you” expresses sentiments of love.

But why four “chambers”? I thought of the EP’s concept not long after I learned about the composition of the human heart, which is divided into four chambers. Each chamber performs a unique task, helping to pulsate blood throughout the body and, in essence, to keep us alive. Since the heart so often symbolizes human emotion – not just love, but also fear, doubt and hope – it made perfect artistic sense to connect each song with a chamber.

So there you have it. Four chambers, four unique yet universal emotions, driving us and shaping the courses of the lives we lead…

I hope this winter finds you in a place of hope and love,

Cassandra
