Calgary’s @Kiesza rocks out with loving tribute “Dearly Beloved”

KIESZA, “Dearly Beloved”

Calgary’s Kiesza scored internationally two years ago, particularly in the dance music scene with the hit “Hideaway” from her major label debut Sound Of A Woman.  This led to her winning three of Canada’s Juno Awards and some Canadian radio awards as well, plus featured vocals on albums by Duran Duran and Tribe Society.  Kiesza steps away from dance music for the rock-inflected, guitar-led “Dearly Beloved”.  Her vocal recalls mid-80’s Pat Benatar and while the rock ante is stepped up, “Dearly Beloved” continues to be an uplifting, danceable tune that is in turn a beautiful tribute to a friend who passed away recently.  The song will hit home with anyone and is a natural for radio play despite the shift in style.  We’ll see what her new album brings us later in the year.  Watch the video – and check out that colourful outfit 🙂 – above.
