A Canadian singer/songwriter with international vision, K 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.
May 2020 saw the release of artist K BESD’s debut single, L.I.Y.E. (Lights in Your Eyes), a creative work inspired by the challenges of dealing with addiction. Her second release pays homage to 1978’s “Tough Times”, a song by iconic Canadian rock band Goddo. Tough Times (2020) was executive produced by Greg Godovitz, and co-produced by Trey Mills and legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix). Her third single THE NIGHT, a sultry shisha lounge inspired track, pays respect to her paternal Moroccan heritage.
K BESD past credits include Greg Godovitz/aMuse Me “Sex in Blue Jeans”, a brilliant production by Loverboy’s Paul Dean and Jay Fletch’s/Light Years Away “Pillow Talk”.
