Kasador’s new album ‘Brood & Bloom’ out now!

More From The Artist: “This album started with the losses of some loved ones, pain, suffering, and struggles with mental health, addiction, and the current political climate. This album finished with the realization that whether or not everything happens for a reason, when one door closes another one opens. It is the realization that our darkest days give us perspective, appreciation, and most of all a deeper understanding of what it is to be human – and this helps us to better connect with those around us, whether it’s through conversation or music. This album a reflection on the personal growth and deeper connection can stem from trying times, and how good can come from the bad.”
