Signaling the drummer, he gives her a wink and the drums pound to life in an evocative melody. Without a second thought, I sit down in my seat never taking my eyes off of her. All thoughts of heading home, forgotten. Gone. My mind was made up the second I knew it was her performing.
I couldn’t leave, even if I wanted to.
Her hands dance across the piano, playing every note perfectly. I only play the guitar, but I’ve heard the song she’s singing before and it’s spot on.
The emotion she puts into the lyrics makes me think maybe she’s singing the song for a specific reason. It becomes plain as day the moment she hits the chorus. She’s lost someone important in her life. She may not know it, but she’s putting all of her feelings on that stage for everyone to see.
Her passion makes me ache in ways I didn’t even know I could ache. It’s mind blowing how one simple song can bring out so many feelings. She’s a storyteller. She understands every line she sings as if she’s been through hell and back.
It’s instantaneous, I can’t explain it, but I feel like I have to know her. In my bones, I know I came to this bar to see her play, to be in her hypnotic presence.
She pounds on the keys as if they’re her lifelines. Her voice is absolutely the most magnificent sound I’ve heard in my entire life. I want to close my eyes to soak in every note, but I’m afraid if I blink, even once, I’ll miss something.
Her head goes down as she sings the final note and the lights fade to black.
The crowd screams in praise and I stand clapping.
Cassie Graham is first and foremost, a wife and mother. She has one crazy daughter and a just as nutters husband that she loves dearly. She lives in sunny–all be it, scorching Arizona, where the summers are ridiculously hot and the winters are perfection. She’d pick winter any day.
Cassie went to school to be a teacher, but quit to become a proud military wife in 2010. During that time, she found her passion to write. Being a loud and proud choirgirl in school, she needed another creative outlet and writing seemed like the perfect fit.
If Cassie isn’t writing, she’s more than likely cooking for her family or has her nose buried deep in a book. She finds inspiration in all things. Movies, music, and life fuel her characters lives, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
