Oh, Cassius! is a compound made up of elements John Torres and Meredith DiMenna. John and Meredith became fast friends when Meredith repeatedly invited herself to John’s parents’ house to swim in their pool. Before long, they discovered a musical kinship that borders on actual kinship (it might even be possible that they are long lost cousins on John’s mother’s side, though probably not because Meredith can grow a uni-brow and John’s mom has pretty red hair).
Since the 4th of July, Oh, Cassius! has been on the receiving end of a very generous muse (in truth, she’s been borderline AGGRESSIVE), and consequently, is compelled to go into the studio and make a debut album.
The duo are proud to call CT home and so have decided to record at one of the best studios Connecticut has to offer, Carriage House Studios - http://www.carriagehousemusic.com - and are even more excited to report the participation of Bridgeport’s own Grammy-nominated producer/engineer, Brendan Muldowney - http://brendanmuldowney.com.

::ALERT::NEW VIDEO::WATCH HERE:: http://youtu.be/plnc1ncg2Vk
The production of an album involves a lot of different costs including:
- Studio time
We don’t want you buying blind, so check out the videos at the bottom of this sectioun for a taste of what you can expect from our completed album. And even though we hope the album itself will be worthy of your contributions, we have put together all kinds of gifts and incentives to reward your belief in what we are doing. John draws, Meredith has a sexy phone voice, John can tutor math, Meredith can lull your babies to sleep, and we also have the hook up to free coffee and banjo lessons - these are rare and special gifts! Please review them and pick the funding level that rewards you best.
Whether or not we reach our goal, we will put all of your contributed funds toward our recording costs. This album will get made!
Please check out the following youtube videos of us doing what we do. We chose a couple of songs we love to cover and created our own arrangments of them. Hope you iike them. :)

We don’t want to brag, but we understand that most investors like to know why a project is important and to see a proven track record, so we’ll brag a little, but only so you know that we have what it takes to complete this and because we rarely get the chance to brag.
Our album represents a genuine male/female dialogue, an examination of unspoken motivations, secret feelings, deep fears, and cockeyed optimism. From the reaction we’ve gotten at all of our live shows, we think you will like it!
