Cass Hopetoun

Set times

2020 was a breakthrough year for Cass Hopetoun. In January she won the Tamworth Songwriter’s Association talent quest before releasing her debut single ‘Shots’ independently in March.

The next month, she signed to Compass Bros Records, the label that launched the careers of Adam Brand, The Sunny Cowgirls and others. What followed was a series on of chart-topping singles and opening for Casey Donovan at Australia's first ever pandemic drive-in concert, and her first Golden Guitar nomination in the category of 'Best New Talent'. Impressive, right? The trajectory continued in 2021 when Cass took home 'Best New Songwriter' and 'Best Ballad' at the 2021 TSA Awards in Tamworth. And the hits kept coming – a surprise duet with Andrew Swift 'Say The Word' and 'Who Needs Hawaii' – the video for which was CMT's most played video of 2021.

With her debut soon to be released in April, confirmed festival appearances at favourite festivals across Australia, and a Golden Guitar Award nomination in the upcoming 2022 Golden Guitar Awards, it's looking like another bumper year for the supremely talented Cass Hopetoun!
