====================

Hi, folks!
Dear Friends,

I have been waiting until I had "more time" to post this, but I'd better stop waiting and post NOW! :)
In short, I am raising funds to move to my own place in Philadelphia by the end of the month of April 2015.
I am very excited and I thank those of you who have funded my personal and professional efforts in the past, including moving after my partner Tom's passing, moving after the women's collective household effort in Philly, and finishing my CD "Hope" (which is available to listen, or order in download and disc format at CD Baby http://cdbaby.com/all/cassendre and

Good review!!

"A gorgeously minimalist showcase for Xavier's throaty Tracy-Chapman-via-Dar-Williams sincerity,Hope assembles catchy, original acoustic ballads, like the sweetly spiritual "Forever Home" and the plaintive title track, "Hope (Find Me This Way)" alongside a surprisingly eclectic roster of well-conceived covers. None of us may have been looking for the raw emotional truth hidden inside J.Lo's pre-fab plastic single "If You Had My Love," but somehow Xavier finds it and redeems it; likewise, her mellow retrofit of Green Day's "When I Come Around" into folksinger idiom is oddly comfortable. The high point is her transcendent rendition of Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather"—a song about the slow fadeout of an expired romance, but Xavier's take is upbeat and life-affirming, reminding us that goodbyes need not be tragic when they can honor and celebrate the beauty that's come before while looking with hope and faith toward the horizon." --Stephen Segal, music critic, Philadelphia Weekly, February 11, 2015 

I will be posting updates very soon but in the meantime, please do support in whatever way(s) you can. 
Meanwhile, I am doing what I can on my end (heh-heh!).
Thank you so much in advance for your continued support of my art/work, and therefore, life!
