Aimee Bessada, a.k.a. A Dream, A Coast, has released her self-titled debut EP.
Bessada came to the attention of songwriting guru Linda Perry as part of VH1 show The Linda Perry Project, and the new EP contains six songs all written and produced by Bessada with Perry in a co-producing role.
Bouncing in between the genres of folk pop, grunge and beach-wave, the music of A Dream, A Coast encapsulates the many musical influences that have shaped Bessada’s style. In a statement accompanying the EP’s release Aimee sites Fleetwood Mac, Elliot Smith and Weezer as key influences.
Aimee herself has toured the world with many bands and artists, including playing lead guitar for Hunter Valentine, Dance Yourself to Death and Toronto art-rock darlings, Vag Halen. She has also opened for Sia, CSS and Cyndi Lauper.
