Drawing influence from contemporaries such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Portishead and Fatima, B-ahwe explores elements of hip-hop, trip-hop and neo soul with jazzy chords, lush vocal textures and, moody, ambient soundscapes. The project originally started as a production venture, after
honing her writing, collaborative and performance skills playing along side Lausse The Cat. 2018 saw her release her first singles, 'Blueprint' and 'Rising', before playing at several notable venues in Leeds, including Belgrave Music Hall and Headrow House, supporting the likes of Yazmin Lacey and Fatima.
In 2019, B-ahwe has made a mark across the UK with summer appearances at Manchester Jazz Festival,
World Island Festival and Tramlines. She also embarked on a tour across the UK that marked the beginning of her debut EP release cycle. The EP, titled 'Nuance', will be released in
the spring alongside a line of integrated visual content.
Help Musicians are supporting me in the completion of a Jazz/Soul EP. Including professional recording equipment, content creation, production and production lessons.
