A collab that works really well together. The new single from Ikes on the Reals features Hayley Cassidy on guest vocals. Its a simple well shot visual depicting the tale of a relationship dramas the ups and down and the other woman (aka music). Strong and keys driven it tells the story perfectly.
Many a moon ago when Myspace ruled the world of social media I came across an amazing young vocalist singing covers on her youtube channel sounding amazing. I booked her to perform at a Remedy night and a beautiful relationship was born. Hayley Cassidy has gone on to become one of the UK’s premier RnB artists, consistently delivering fantastic performances whenever she gets behind the mic whether on stage or in the studio.
Here she talks about her beginnings as an artist and how that as hard as the live scene and the music game can be it provides inspiration and its something she just can’t turn away from.
Music is Remedy came to the public eye late August 2006 in a bar in Camden formerly known as the OH Bar with our first ever live event Remedy. Since then many artists graced the stage at our events. Some have pushed on and carved out varying levels of success wowing crowds around the country some even achieving world-wide success, whilst others have settled down and left their performing days behind them.
With the return of the original Remedy night in April we decided to sit down with some of the performers who were a big part of the Remedy family we created in the early days and talk to them about their art and journey. Looking at how working the live circuit was so important and how it helped them hone their craft and drive their passions.
We picked different performers that represent the different areas that Music is Remedy showcase… Hip Hop Soul Spoken Word and of course live music. So we have the poet, the singer, the rapper and the musician.
Over the next 4 weeks we will be releasing a different episode every Thursday as we count down to the return of the Remedy night on April 7th @ Stereo 92. Starting on Thursday March 3rd! It’s a project I’m really excited to share with everyone. It’s honest, fun, from the heart and shows all those aspiring to be in the game what it’s all about. Here is a preview of what to expect.

What better way to start the year then with this fantastic young lady! Hayley Cassidy kicks of 2016 with a gorgeous acoustic rendition of Estelle’s “American Boy”. She throws couple of extra classics in there to give you a couple of twists but once again another flawless display of her vocal brilliance. Sure there is a lot more goodness to come from Hayley this year and I really can’t wait to hear it. The cream of UK RnB.
Last month Terri Walker put on a special night showcasing her current album “Entitled” at Under The Bridge featuring as well as her own full set performances from The Floacist, Dora Martin and Hayley Cassidy. Highlights were captured by the brilliant ADTV crew who have spliced footage with interview clips of Terri talking honestly about herself, her journey and the new album. She sounding and looking great and hearing her speak only makes me want to buy the album more. She has waved the flag for UK music for sometime now, setting high standards and achieving so much a true inspiration and undeniably one of the best the UK has ever had! Salute to you Terri!
You know when you watch something and it just makes you smile. I love seeing progress and that is something that this lady continues to do. The new video from Hayley Cassidy see’s her once again bringing her insane quality. It’s a gorgeous slice of RnB perfection and her voice is superb as ever, the ridiculous quality in the visuals for me is what sells it though. With every release she is looking more and more like the bonafide star she is destined to become.
Ahhhhh yeah fresh new vibes from two of my favourite artists Incisive and Hayley Cassidy absolutely killing it on this new tune. The vibe on it is ill and the two go in and out of each others verse in a unique and unconventional way but the transitions are still very smooth. Once again Incisive tackles relationship issues and i’m pretty sure many can relate. Nutty P on the beat does a great job. All in all tune is a straight BANGER!!!
Love the collab this ish needs to happen more people!!!
Some more footage from Hayley Cassidy’s live performance at Vocals & Verses a few weeks ago. Here she takes on Sam Smith’s massive “Not the only one”. Here she shows off her lower range, an epic key change and then that wonderful ability she has to ad-lib at the end of the song for ages without you wanting her to stop. Shouts to the keys man who throws some nice sprinklings of gospel keys into the pop song and accompanying Hayley perfectly. Awesome performance as always.
Live footage from Hayley’s recent performance at Vocals & Verses. Backed by the full band the Music is Remedy favourite does what she does best sounding simply divine. The ad-libbing at the end is awesome and the band compliment her nicely never taking the spotlight away from her. Just superb as always.
Picture courtesy of Vocals & Verses get tickets for their next event this Sunday here.
