Hailing from North West London, singer/songwriter Basheba brings us a unique, combination of blues, Soul, Breakbeat and gospel with her latest single, "Don't Go". With an intoxicating visual, "Don't Go" provides a captivating experience for the viewer, fusing beauty, chaos and love into a three minute presentation that compliments her sultry vocals.
After the success of her two EPs ‘Bad friends, Good enemies’ and Sessions, Basheba has spent the last 8 months working on her new project AXIOM, a three-part EP to be released over the course of 6 months. The idea behind the project is to share her musical evolution with her listeners. Each EP is a progression; with the last EP giving listeners the introduction to her evolved sound and the foundation of her official first album.
Basheba creates an evocative narrative in her music. She says,
“A song is nothing without a story. I’m a storyteller, I just tell my stories through song.”
This storytelling inspired the artistic photographer Luke Nugent to work closely with Basheba to create images that have grabbed the attention of both music & fashion press alike.
Basheba has received online backing from SBTV, Afro Punk, Mobo, Vevo and many more. And Radio support from BBC London, Radio 1, Radio 1 Xtra, Kiss FM and Capital Xtra. As well as being featured on MTV UK and US, along with a sync on SKY sports with her 1xtra Record of the Week track ‘High ‘n’ Dry’.
