About: Cabildo is a West Michigan based alternative Latin rock collective that delivers a unique blend of cumbia, ska, folk and other genres of music from Latin and South America. Cabildo roughly means Town Hall in Spanish. Historically, cabildos were gathering places located throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. They doubled as locations where African slaves could play traditional chants and drum parts. These were passed on through generations during Spanish colonization and continue to live on in today’s modern music.
About: Born and raised on the coast of Lake Michigan, -singer-songwriter Sierra Cassidy, grew up in a small and thriving arts-driven community. Sierra found inspiration for self-expression through song throughout her early years. In 2013, Sierra was the recipient of the Bliss Festival Scholarship to attend Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters in Harbor Springs, MI. After graduating from the Interlochen Arts Academy, Sierra attended Berklee College of Music in both Boston, MA and Valencia, Spain. While studying songwriting and living abroad, Sierra discovered her affinity for “off-beat" pop” music, drawing influence from excursions to discotheques on weekend trips to neighboring countries. Since releasing her first self-produced single in 2017, Sierra has shifted her role into the emblem "i.am.james." creating a persona that allows for escapism, but also allows life to leak into her songs. Her music has been noted as "heart-ache to dance to," and "left of center pop," drawing influences from both her upbringing in folk music and her admiration for contemporary pop music.
