Singer-songwriter Kassandra Dasent’s latest single, Be Still, gives you the sense that she lights up any room that she walks in. All of her music is a reflection of her evolutionary journey through life, and Be Still is the perfect introduction to the value of her introspection and the passion in her bluesy gospel vocal delivery.
It is all too easy to say ‘good vibes only’ through music; what is far more difficult – and what Dasent excels in – is guiding those who use the atrocities in the world as a reason for apathy back into motion.
The San Juan, Trinidad-born artist grew up in Montreal with Calypso, Soca & Chutneyin her blood; her rich heritage transfuses into her sound that carries a sonic resemblance to 90s soul-pop while unravelling as a melting pot of culture that you’ll want to delve into the and time again.
The official music video for Be Still is now available to stream via YouTube.
