Cassadee got her start as the front girl of the pop/rock band Hey Monday and after touring and working with the band for the past four years, Cassadee has decided to take a break and work on her career as a solo artist.

"I decided to take a break on Hey Monday because things started slowing down for us and the thing that I kept thinking about was going solo, so I just went for it and now I'm going on tour," Cassadee said.

Cassadee also talked to us about her new sound and how it is different from that of Hey Monday.

"I think the best comparison would be the old Katy Perry stuff. A little edgier, a little more fun. Her lyrics are always very honest and that's the kind of stuff that I'm going to do," Cassadee said.

Avril Lavigne is also one of the inspirations for Cassadee's new music, but Cassadee says that the bands she listened to growing up, like Blink-182 and Fall Out Boy, will always influence her.

"I'd love to be on pop radio, but no matter what I'll always have that edge that I've had since I started singing," Cassadee said.

Cassadee recently covered the song "Torn" and will be playing it on her acoustic tour. She also plans to play some of Hey Monday's hit songs and will be taking requests.

She also hinted that Ryan Key, lead singer of Yellowcard, will possibly be making a special guest appearance to cover "Only One" with her at the Key Club in Los Angeles on January 31st.

After the interview, Cassadee went outside for a special Cambio photo shoot! Cassadee had so much fun taking photos in an alleyway outside our studio. She even found a sweet saying written in graffiti that she wanted to take some pictures in front of.
