Hailing from south-east London, Marie Bashiru is a singer/songwriter, where her music resembles a melting pot of folk, soul and indie rock. Though hard to pin down to a single genre, Marie's biographical writing talents paired with her soulful melodies have been featured in various publications, such as Gigwise, and also being selected by The Independent as one of the Artist Spotlights of 2020.

Her latest release "Joyride" has been featured on BBC Radio London, BBC Introducing and she has also featured on BBC Radio 4 as part of "Sunday Service" and Reprezent radio; with a live album on the way in 2021, and a unique sound, Marie's earnest, time-honed artistry points to a new and fresh generation of singer-songwriters in British music.
The support I will be receiving from Help Musicians will be a truly invaluable opportunity to create and record an EP album this year in 2021.
