Dutch Cassidy 30


Amsterdam, NL   Jan 2015


Artist Bio

Influences:   John Hiatt, Jason Isbell, Justin Currie, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Jim Groce, Loudon Wainwright III, Neil Young, Steve Earle... should I go on?

Yes he's Dutch, but he serves up true and raw Americana, as natural as breathing a Nashville breeze. A mix of country, blues, rock'n'roll and folk.
As real as it gets. Songs that'll break your heart or drive you to drink.


Early 2018 Dutch released the EP 'Getting There' with 4 songs, including the 2017 FAWM song New York City. Available from all major online stores or as autographed CD (including 2 bonustracks unreleased anywhere online) through dutchcassidy.bandcamp.com

    Dutch thanks for taking the time to listen and comment on try and find you. It's tough this time of the month to get listeners (everyone trying to finish their own stuff). Hope you can coast the rest of the way. But I know you got a few more in you.

    Hi Dutch,

    Your advice was heeded. We had our best meal in the Spanish Quarter.
    I think you'll like my latest song I wrote back in the hotel about the perils of being a pedestrian in Naples. It is part of the "Talk to Death" challenge.

  • @berni1954  Feb 23

    Hi Dutch,
    We are in Naples for a long weekend. So far we have spent a morning sorting out an overbooked hotel; visited the ecxellent Museo Nazionale; visited el centro storico (most of the churches worth seeing and part of the Naples Underground). This evening we went to watch the sun go down from Castello S. Elmo. Just got back to the hotel after a great evening meal in Via Medina.
    We have till 7pm Tuesday. Any suggestions as to what we must see till then? Thanks in advance.

    You are so wonderful and kind. I have no more zongs. Thank your for commenting and the encouragement.

  • @tsunamidaily  Feb 22

    go for it on been there. i already know what i hear, so i'm interested in other takes.

  • @cleanshoes Feb 22

    Thank you so much for your comment on Oh, Honey. That's exactly what I was going for!

  • @dugganensis  Feb 21

    Haha, no I'm not @mardeycranbleson ๐Ÿ˜‚ I miss him this year too. He'd have like, what, 30 ditties up by now? Is it too soon to start working on a documentary, "Where Is Mardey Cranbleson?" ๐Ÿค”

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 21

    Tex-mex can be used to describe a mash up of styles near the Texas Mexican border...Tejano also comes out of this region...im no expert Dutch, it all sounds cool to me.

  • @dugganensis  Feb 21

    Hi, I'm not sure if we've high-fived in the past. Maybe? The video series is an interesting way to honor and document the fawm process. I'm enjoying it, (I need to catch up on your output!)

  • @redlady8029  Feb 21

    Hi--- Writing this type of music is my Passion. I believe if your good your good. And one of these love songs I write will get noticed by a major artist or song writing teams that want my type of songs. Thanks for the suggestion though.

  • @redlady8029  Feb 21

    RE: Feelings, thoughts and Beliefs
    Thank you for commenting on the lyric. YES--I love a good love song. Thanks for the encouragement.. Are you interested in collaborating?

  • @redlady8029  Feb 21

    RE: Trust your love. Thank you for commenting on the lyric. I had to learn to love myself first. And then invite him into the love. I had to think outside the box of me but I eventually got the lesson. Thanks for the encouragement.. Are you interested in collaborating?

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 19

    Hey Dutch, if you have time and the song interests you, could you take a run at "She's a Meteor"? I've got an idea in my head, but would like a different take on it. I realize your time is limited (it is day 19). Thanks Bill.

  • @mustanglola87 Feb 19

    Schat succes!! Even een tussentijdse hart onder de riem. Goed bezig en vergeet niet te genieten van de mooie muziek die je aan het maken bent <3 Ook al doe ik niet, ik ben je aan het volgen hoor!

  • @aneil Feb 18

    Thx for your comment on Snippity snip the demo is up thx to @metalfoot
    looking forward to hearing the collab . What was I thinking that title is far to long for a song (It was more the theme)

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 10

    Dutch, thanks for commenting on Flower Child. The monotony I was talking was the guitar strums. Seem to be all the same to me. The lyrics flowed ok. Of course that story never happened, but I was on Haight Street 1967 after watching an American Football game in Kezar Stadium. Quite enlightening for a 17 year old HS senior.

  • @aneil Feb 10

    Dutch the powers that be say i'm going to sleep too early and waking too early! I have had complaints from home affairs of FAWM neglect ... I'm going to reduce my activity and try work on music from now on !

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 6

    Thanks for commenting on welcome home. Yes I pick the Chords and Instruments for the piece. Lots of time I will add things like harmonicas and accordions to the piece. I can barely play a guitar these days. Can you keep up the pace with a video a day and writing/performing songs? Actually I know you can.

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 6

    Dutch, Thanks for reviewing "Texarkana Gal".

  • @gordon  Feb 5

    Hi Dutch, thanks for the kind words. I'm enjoying watching your blogs and your voice is great when you let it rip. Happy Fawming!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 5

    Oh Dutch America would go nuts over you..
    You should go to Nashville where you would really fit in
    You and your wife would really have a great time

  • @srcoops  Feb 5

    Your singing is from the heart. Enjoy the lusty style.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 5

    That'll be great

  • @cindyrella  Feb 5

    Sure! Can't wait to hear it!

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 3

    I like the song. Especially the intensity lift in the chorus and the walking guitar.

  • @aneil Feb 2

    Fantastic idea Iโ€™ll subscribe look forward to the journey!

  • @crimulus Feb 2

    Thanks for the note Dutch. I ended up deciding against FAWM this year ... just too many things occupying my focus, and the thought of it was stressing me a little.

    Next year though. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @unknownbecky  Feb 1

    Thanks, Dutch! Looking forward to listening to your tunes too!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 1

    Hi! Here we go again ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 1

    Yay Dutch!
