Cassie Josephine and Gabriel Minnikin are an Indie-folk/Old-Country duo from Halifax, NS. They released their debut album Flower Country, on October 1, 2016.
"Pristine harmonies and gentle twang aplenty on this happy alt-country collaboration." (bandcamp.com) Flower Country's poetic lyrics and melodies both haunt and toe tap. It was conceived as a split, featuring Cassie's songwriting on "Side A" and Gabriel's songwriting on "Side B" (with the hopes of one day releasing it on vinyl), the two coming together as the front-couple to the Flower Country Band.
Gabriel Minnikin was a founding member of acclaimed country outfit The Guthries and then a world travelling solo artist touring with the likes of First Aid Kit and Justin Townes Earle. Gabriel recorded his last solo album, Parakeets with Parasols, in Manchester, UK in 2012 and soon headed back to East Coast Canada where he met Cassie Josephine just releasing her debut LP, Cutlery ’N’ Cryin. Now, these two songwriters share the stage, their music and a little house in Halifax.
