Cadia are two young ladies Tori Smith and Courtney Myers who are just out of high school. This is reflected in "This One's For The Girls" which starts with the lyrics, "This is for all you girls about 13; high school can be so tough." but goes on to address the emotional turmoil of various female stages of life. Pop and mainstream in production, the album theme is fun and upbeat and well suited to mainstream airplay. The duo is clearly heading for the big-time touring with Avalon in Spring 2008. The Nichole Nordeman track "Inside Out" has become the official theme song and video for Women Of Faith's Revolve Tour and already caused some impact. Their vocal style is not so much two-part harmonies, as complimenting unison. What works well in communicating each parable of the songs is the use of questions and answers in a harmonious dialogue. For example the chorus of "I'll Stay" questions God's security and answers with total assurance. The duo's name derives from Arcadia - a place of peace, which doesn't really reflect the pop rock sound of their music, more the peace to be found in God through the rocky turmoil of life.
