The SheHH podcast is a podcast series all about Christian women in the front and behind the scenes of Christian music all over the world. The name is a play on the phrase CHH, which stands for Christian Hip Hop, but SheHH is for all genres (and all women!) within Christian music.
Series One of the SheHH podcast gave us the opportunity to speak to five amazing women from all over the world: Wande (USA), CASS (New Zealand), Adegail (UK), Risha Leondra (USA) and Sal Ly (Nigeria).
In this episode, Paula had a chat with her favourite artist Cassandra Kanda, better known as CASS. She is a Zimbabwe-born, New Zealand-bred Christian music artist. Her first two albums, Genesis and Not For Sale came out in 2017 and 2018 respectfully! And in this interview, she gave us the EXCLUSIVE about her upcoming project, what it's really like being an unsigned, independent artist and how 'pre-Jesus' Kanye West inspired her as a producer - we hope you enjoy this!
