On September 10, 2019, Minneapolis-based recording artist Cade Bittner released his first full-length album titled I'VE GOTTA BE ME, which debuted at #5 on the iTunes Jazz charts.  The album can be found on all digital platforms and limited edition signed CD's and Vinyl Records can be purchased exclusively at


Featuring timeless songs from the Great American Songbook, the album features a duet with #1 Billboard Artist and Broadway Star- Shoshana Bean.  The two recorded the iconic duet, "Get Happy/Happy Days Are Here Again".  The album also features "L-O-V-E", "Autumn Leaves", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Taking A Chance On Love", "I've Gotta Be Me",  "Smile", and "My Funny Valentine".

After raising nearly $200,000 over the course of 10 weeks, Cade was named the the 2018 MAN OF THE YEAR by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  He continues to work closely with LLS and has announced that album proceeds will benefit the charitable organization.

Leading up to his recent album success, Cade previously released two EP's: CADE BITTNER: MERRY CHRISTMAS and CADE BITTNER: SURVIVOR and was asked to be a part of A MINNESOTA HOLIDAY: VOLUME 7 and 8- an annual compilation album that boasts the "Minnesota A-list" and raises money for local Minnesota charities.

A Minnesota native, Cade happily calls Minneapolis home but still considers himself a proud New Yorker after his ten-year stint in the magical city.
