Album Notes
Singer–songwriters Barbara Cassidy and Eric Chasalow have again joined forces with bass player Bob Nieske on a new EP entitled: Fly Away. The four new Cassidy/Chasalow songs and two additional cover songs include the musical participation of (Neal Hampton, piano; Dan Carp, percussion; Peter Van Zandt Lane, mandolin; and Tim Obetz, pedal steel and Dobro). Eric, in addition to producing, engineering and mixing, contributes vocals, guitars, electronics, piano, percussion, winds and harmonica. Fly Away was mastered by Ian Kennedy.

Thematically, the songs encompass the need for and the joy of “flight” and the “space between” making decisions, moving forward, escaping and nothingness. From a re-telling of the Icarus Myth in their song “Fly Away” to taking a journey to the truth in “Are You Finding What You Need?” to the swirling dust and ash of “How it Goes”, to reaching a dead end in “I Ran Out of Innocence”, the EP showcases the broad musical talents of the couple.
Praise for their 2012 debut CD: Leaving Things the Way I Found Them:

"Cassidy is, [a natural lyricist] and she taps effortlessly into an American story-telling-folk tradition, and does so in a way that seems utterly authentic…” Leicester Bangs, U.K.

"The couple exhibit a high degree of musical understanding and work well together, and their air of easy confidence belies the fact that this is their first recording." FATEA, U.K.

"[Barbara Cassidy] leaves traditional forms very much the way she found them, after doing them sweet, tender justice." Bill Copeland Music News, USA
The Barbara Cassidy Band is Barbara Cassidy, vocals, Eric Chasalow (her husband), guitar and vocals, and guests. In 2010 they began songwriting and performing together. Along with their originals, the couple also performs American and Irish Traditional songs.
