Line up

Kelly Besd

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. October 2020 saw the release of her second single, TUFF TIMES, paying homage to 1978’s “Tough Times”, a song by iconic Canadian rock band Goddo. The first single off her upcoming EP, TUFF TIMES was co-produced by legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix) and Trey Mills, and executive produced by Greg Godovitz. Her fourth single, Our Love, also included on her upcoming EP, features a variety of local artists and focuses on the need for community and a sense of togetherness through music during trying times. Kelly's past credits include her debut single, L.I.Y.E. (Lights in Your Eyes), a creative work inspired by the challenges of dealing with addiction, THE NIGHT, a sultry shisha lounge inspired track paying respect to her paternal Moroccan heritage, 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.

Natalia Chai

Originally from Edmonton, Natalia is now based out of Calgary. Natalia performs regularly in both cities but most notably, she’s had a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent Canada at the 2018 Chengdu International Sister Cities Youth Music Festival to not only introduce R&B/Neosoul to China but to also raise global awareness in building stronger cultural connections through music. Skilled on the piano and keyboard, Natalia is featured in many other artists’ projects on keys and voice, executive/sound producer for a new animation series, contributions to music production in the film industry such as CBC’s "My Lyric I Never Knew” and even written/produced the soundtrack for an independent short film called “Power Moves” that has been selected for the 35th Edmonton International Film Festival. No matter the platform, Natalia’s art has driven all her listeners to describe her sultry voice as “honey to the ears''. Her music brings back the nostalgia of old school R&B/Neosoul and flirts with gospel jazz. Natalia believes in the power of creating a community that isn’t afraid to discuss tough topics about the human condition in today’s complex society. Natalia is also a proud independent community partner with the Mental Health Commission of Canada and Canadian Mental Health Association of Calgary where she is a keynote speaker at youth summits for students across the province sharing her lived experiences as an Asian woman breaking cultural and societal norms to make her creative dreams come true!

R&B/Neosoul gospel jazz


Chefbeatz has claimed his position as Calgary’s very own trifecta of AfroSwing. As an artist who produces and song writes, Chef is pioneering a sound the world didn’t know it was missing. Born in Bo Town, Sierra Leone, Chef traveled through Western Africa – Guinea, Ghana, and the Ivory Coast before making Cow Town the last stop on that journey. Chef masterfully mixes his African roots with his western ties by fusing together Hip-Hop /R&B/ Pop and traditional West African sounds, this evolution and unique integration of cultures resulted in Afro Swing’s hottest new sound. From Jazzy melodies to traditional African sounds that ride the familiar sounds of Hip-Hop percussions – it is safe to say that Chef is more than willing to push the boundaries of music production as a storyteller who explores from depth and movement – and everything in between. Chef has been particularly busy as of late; producing “Story Keepers" a video series exploring personal stories relating to Black history in Alberta – a joint production by Glenbow Museum and Afrikadey! Arts & Culture Society, his own “Sun Lark”; an audio/visual experience and "Find Move Love" a collaborative EP with Kelly Besd. Chef plans to release an Extended Play (EP) concept album – it will feature a number of artists he has worked with; showcasing talent and telling a very unique narrative.
