Cassi Hilbers is 12 year old singer/songwriter from the Sunshine Coast, with a huge passion for original, acoustic music. Cassi has been writing songs and entertaining audiences all across the coast, since the age of 9.
She initially taught herself guitar by watching youtube, and now has many songs to her name, some of which were used by Pumpkin Patch clothing for their TV commercials across Australia & New Zealand in 2013.
Cassi placed 6th in the Australian Songwriting Awards in 2013 with a song she co-wrote with songwriter Danielle Blakey, and was a finalist in the Youth section at the Tamworth Songwriters Association National Songwriting Competition in 2014 with a self-penned song ‘Footprints”.
Cassi graduated from the CMAA Academy of Country Music in January of 2014, and went on to perform at various shows at the Tamworth Country Music Festival immediately after graduation. She was inspired by her Academy mentors to keep writing and performing as much as possible, which has lead to a very busy 2014!
