With a soulful style all his own, vocalist and performer since the tender age of five, Cassidy possesses a God-given talent that never fails to reach the hearts of his audience. Being a recording artist has proven to be particularly rewarding for Parlane. Over Christmas of 2005, he recorded a single version of “Silent Night” which was played on a numerous radio stations in the GTA, receiving high rotation and requests throughout the Christmas holiday. In addition, the single was featured on one of Miami’s top Christian radio stations, which received a great response from the Floridian audience. The end result was a large number of requests for playback of the demo and many listeners demanding to know who this “mystery singer” is.
“Being OK at anything in life just doesn’t cut it for me… it has to be the best. I think God honors excellence, and wants us to do our very best, and nothing less” says Parlane.
Cassidy later became the lead singer of the Christian rock band “Havenstance” in 2010.
