The Kindly Ravens are an Americana, alt country duo comprising of Cassi Marie and Steve Boom. Their songs contain heartfelt lyrics, passionate and emotive vocals and themes around heartbreak and unrequited love, with a dark and melancholic undertone. The bands style is similar to that of The Civil Wars and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
At just 19 years of age, Cassi Marie already has a super impressive list of achievements under her belt. From writing songs for an international clothing company at 10 years of age, and winning the Gympie Muster Talent Search at 12, to appearing in an Australian feature film, and recording her latest Single ‘Walls’ with esteemed Brisbane producer Jason Millhouse - There are no limits to Cassi’s creativity, drive and determination, she is an ever-evolving artist that proves each and every day that talent, hard work and commitment are the building blocks to a successful career.
After leaving the music industry in 2009, Steve made the decision to focus on pursing his passion as an artist. With long term musical partner Neil Steward, they started to work on their debut album for their band The English Rain. Around this time Steve was lucky enough to write with some up and coming songwriters, one of which was Cassi Marie, who joined the English Rain and from there they decided to join forces and follow their passion for Americana music - and so The Kindly Ravens were born.
