Jessica Chaz mellows out with her new single Dreamin’ (Acoustic Remix) — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Originally released in 2018, Dreamin’ has racked up 80K views on YouTube. Vancouver pop singer-songwriter Chaz believes the message is relevant now more than ever, as we grapple with a “new normal” post-pandemic.
“That song specifically is about hope and faith that things that we dream for, hope for, and wish for are possible,” she explains. “I think now more than ever — after what we all experienced globally — we need to believe that the seemingly unreachable dreams we have are necessary, and that they can come true.”
The remix mixes soulful R&B with reflective, introspective guitar to create an ultimately hopeful message about the power of dreams and imagination:
“What are you hoping for every night
Come on it’s time they say, it’s time to start a real life
But how do they know, what’s in sight, what is right
This ain’t a dream no more, this is my life.”
The acoustic take is one of five new versions on Chaz’s new Dreamin’ (Remixes) EP. “Dreamin’ (Remixes) was a musical adventure,” she said. “I had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people who supported me in trying new ideas and challenging ourselves to create these five different remixes in a short amount of time. We are thankful, and we hope that with these remixes it can be a reminder to you, that even in 2023, you can hope and dream and it is possible it will become a reality in time.”
Chaz grew up in Durban, South Africa, where her passion for music began. She performed with her band Seasons at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Shortly after entering the Canadian music scene, she was a featured as an artist to watch in Vancouver. In 2019, she performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto.
