I’m overjoyed that Icedick is finally out in the world for everyone to enjoy!

We had the release party in Brooklyn last night, where we performed the song live and screened the music video for the first time. The feedback from the crowd was incredible, and they were bowled over by the video.

Through the process of getting this video made, Josh and I have probably watched it about 100 times, so even though we still love it and haven’t gotten tired of it, we loved being able to see a group of people experience it together for the first time. It was so awesome to hear their laughter and cheers and see how invested they got in the story of the video and all the twists and turns.

We look forward to people around the world seeing the video on YouTube and being able to get out and perform the song and screen the video more.

The Icedick release also includes a recording of this live, acoustic performance we did of Icedick at the RISK!/Bawdy Storytelling live show in 2018 at The Bell House in Brooklyn in the video above. The crowd that night was electric and we even had a guest backup dance for the performance by Kevin Allison, which you can see here. I’m so excited to be able to share this live recording with all my listeners as well. Hopefully it won’t be the last one I do!

I don’t know how much longer we’ll be living in a world that needs the clean version of songs with explicit lyrics, given how outrageous a lot of top ten pop hits have gotten lyrically, but for now, we do have this tamer version of Icedick, called Icestick, for any of you who may want to listen to this version around kids or anywhere you can’t be blasting curse words.

Those are all the versions of Icedick that are out now everywhere you get music, so go take a listen, send them to your friends, add them to your playlists, and play them at your gatherings! We look forward to Icedick delighting listeners around the world!

To celebrate the release of Icedick, we’re having two events this week:

The Icedick Release Party in NYC on Thursday, May 25th at 8:30pm at 66 Greenpoint in Brooklyn


The YouTube Premiere of Icedick online, with a Zoom talkback with Josh Nova, Salvé Black and me on Friday, May 26th at 12pm EST.

The posters for each event are above with all the info you need.

Can’t wait to see you there!

I’m so excited to announce my next release, Icedick, which is a duet between my longtime friend Josh Nova and me.

Josh and I are both singer/songwriter/producers, and the two of us wrote, produced and performed this song together way back in 2010, but we never actually brought the song out into the world in its finished form. We each worked independently on various other artistic and musical projects in the meantime, but in 2018, we performed Icedick live at The Bell House in Brooklyn at a RISK! and Bawdy Storytelling live show, and after the crowd’s huge reaction, we knew we had to get serious about finishing the project and getting Icedick to the people.

First, I had to get The Four on The Floor EP back out into the world, and then the pandemic struck, but in late 2021, I finally reopened the then 11-year old Logic session for Icedick, cleaned up the stems, and sent them to our recording and mixing engineer for the project, Chris Camilleri, so he could prep for our vocal recording session. We recorded the vocals for Icedick in January of 2022 at Chris’ studio and spend the next few months getting the song mixed and mastered to perfection.

We then recruited animator Salvé Black to create a hilarious animated music video for Icedick inspired by the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the 90’s that Josh and I grew up on, as well as the Ambiguously Gay Duo videos from SNL.

Now that the full studio and live versions of Icedick, plus the music video, are ready to be released, the song and music video are finally coming out on May 26th, 2023 to YouTube and all music streaming services. Make sure you’re following me on all social media, music streaming services, and YouTube so you get alerted when the song and music video are out!

We’ll be having an in-person release party for the song and music video on Thursday, May 25th at 8:30pm at 66 Greenpoint, a bar at 66 Greenpoint Avenue in Brooklyn, NY, where we’ll perform Icedick, have an interview about how the song came to be, and screen the Icedick music video for the very first time ever. I hope I’ll see you there!

If you’re not in NYC, we’ll also have an online premiere for the Icedick music video on YouTube, followed by a talkback with Josh, Salvé and me on Zoom about the song and video. That’ll happen on Friday, May 26th at 12pm Eastern Standard Time, so subscribe to YouTube.com/JCCassis and go there then to see that!

I can’t believe the time for Icedick to be out in the world has FINALLY come, and I hope you all love it as much as Josh and I do!

My recent show at the Brooklyn Public Library, which was my first full solo live show back in forever, was super fun and a great success. I performed all of the Four on the Floor EP plus three cover songs and a medley/mashup of some of my favorite early 90’s pop songs.

The weather was beautiful, the audience was into it, and it was a great time all around. Got these beautiful pics of the show by Stuart Ruston/Cherry Ghost.

Can’t wait to get more stage looks and choreography ready so I can get out there more regularly!

A new song and music video have also been in the works all year long and should be out soon, so keep an eye out for that!
