South African born, Canada based singer/songwriter ‘Calvyn Cass’ has just released his brand new single ‘My Friend’. The new single ‘My Friend’ is a melodic, touching and uplifting ballad with an epic pop vibe, that touches his fans with it’s perfect pop ballad sensibility and heartfelt warm sound.
Talking about the meaning behind the single, Calvyn Cass says “I originally wrote “My Friend” about my moms battles with cancer. The idea of losing her and not having our weekly phone chats (we live in different cities) but it was right around the height of the pandemic. People were dying or were surviving the loss of their loved ones. I wrote it for my own experience but also for everyone else’s suffering”.
Calvyn Cass is a South African born boy who identifies as Canadian these days. He says “My family immigrated in 2000 when I hit puberty. Finishing off school almost finished off me. I’m gay and high in the farm lands while growing up in a Christian home sucked. Music always saved me”.
Calvyn Cass gets his inspiration from his personal and observed life after travelling the world. He puts his heart and soul into his epic and well produced music saying “They were all a labour of love with a lot of my heart put into them.“
The new single ‘My Friend’ from Calvyn Cass has a classic pop edge with a modern up to date production. His warm and touching sound is distinctive and original, with hints of ‘George Michael’ and ‘Elton John’ in his very well arranged pristine pop productions. Definitely a rising artist to look out for on a global scale.
