Freckled face beauty, Basheba, credits her Bajan roots as a significant musical influence. According to the singer, the passion and love the people of Barbados have for music was ingrained from an early age. Spending a significant amount of time on the Caribbean island during her adolescent years, contributed to a mixed bag of experiences that translated into to her eclectic sounding music — ranging from electro-heavy to gospel inspired tracks.

A year ago, the singer gifted us with “Your Love,” an up-tempo track about the addictive hold love can evoke. Now, releasing a freshly made video “High and Dry,” as well as a four track Sessions EP, an emotionally gritty and stripped down version of her most recent work.
Basheba is set to perform two live shows in the upcoming weeks. Check out her sounds and show information below.
11th May – Brighton, Komedia
12th May – Bristol, The Snug Club
