A Canadian singer/songwriter with international vision, Kelly Besd favours moody, bassy sounds influenced by R&B and rock. Catchy melodies and infectious hooks create a connection for an ever growing fan base.
Besd’s 2022 saw the release of four collaborative singles with producer ChefBeatz; Switchin’ Expectations, Strxp, Take a Trip and Goin’ Up. Her debut EP, Back to Me, is an eclectic blend of pop, R&B and rock. It includes previously released singles Dreamin’ featuring Jackie Art and K-Riz, TUFF TIMES, paying homage to 1978’s “Tough Times” by iconic Canadian rockers Goddo. This feature track was co-produced by Eddie Kramer (The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix) and Greg Godovitz. Besd was featured on CTV Calgary news at noon to discuss her single Our Love featuring 20+ local artists.
Back to Me, produced by ChefBeatz and funded by Alberta Foundation for the Arts, is Kelly and Chef’s second project. Their first, FML, released fall 2021 and FML II is expected early 2023.
