Kassie Tyers sings with the voice of a friend, delivering the truth of her convictions with compassion gained through experience.
“A lot of what I write comes from my observations, experiences and the feelings associated with those experiences. If I have been hurt, I may sit on it for a while but when I pick up my guitar, it will all come to the surface so I can share what I have felt and learned with others. The same is true with happiness. The song “Manitoulin” is about my Nana’s cottage and how much I love it there. I love my talks with my Nana. She inspires me often and has inspired quite a few of my songs.”
