About

Thank you for stopping by. I do hope you say HI!

Cassandra Smith Artist

My drive in life is fueled by country music and the creative force that it is. Since forming Moonshine Mollys, where I sing lead, we have worked on growing the country music community on Vancouver Island. Hosting country events. Recently I started an Island Country page on Facebook to share what is going on in country music on the island. I am part of a tribute act, FLOC a.k.a. First Ladies of Country, where I pay tribute to Loretta Lynn & Linda Ronstadt. Most recently, my MC skills have been performed at five Dream Wedding Shows, and large community events on Vancouver Island.

Also, I have experience running a photography studio for over 12 years, as well as teaching in the public school system. I very much working with others on a team. I would love to connect with you and collaborate. Please feel free to message me.

A bit more about me….

Never having the ability to stop creative flow, Cassandra has developed multiple areas within visual and performing arts. She is an accomplished painter & photographer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts with honors and distinction. She has educated within the public school system, as well as, teaching educators on arts education and creativity.

Photography has truly been an outlet for her creative process. With over 16 years as a professional photographer, covering events large and small and specializing in portraiture. Capturing who the subject is. This has lead to the most creative photography yet in Cassandra’s work. Creating composites that tell stories and evoke emotion.

Emotion is something Singer Songwriter, Cassandra Smith has in spades, which is great for this expressive form of art. She is the lead vocalist for the Moonshine Mollys Country Band and former female half of duo, Grace & Grit. Presently working on a Tribute Act with an all female cast, The First Ladies of Country where she pays homage to Loretta Lynn & Linda Ronstadt.

Having grown up in the Canadian Prairies living country, it has always been a part of her. With a true love for all country music, she has been working to overcome boundaries that have held her back from being herself. This has lead MCing tradeshows & events!

At this time, Cassandra is writing and working to record her first solo album. Moonshine Mollys has been her love since 2012 that really has opened up the world of music. With support of Indie Entertainment, Mollys have built a growing team with such talented musicians to surround themselves with. This coming summer they are playing at festivals and events around BC.
