Guest Mentors

Cassidy Mann

As a lyricist, singer-songwriter Cassidy Mann often reshapes a small moment into a powerful and poetic song that feels both personal and relatable. Mann’s latest EP “If It’s Not Forever” served as a catalogue of how her early relationships ended and why – and she hopes that other people feel seen and comforted by her stories. Also an active force in the music industry, Mann previously worked as a booking intern with Real Love Winnipeg/First Date Touring and is now the Indigenous Music Development Co-ordinator at Manitoba Music.
