Drawing influence from contemporaries such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Portishead and Fatima, B-awhe 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, thus becoming a key player in the cities exciting jazz and soul circuit.
‘Silky smooth and effortlessly cool, B-ahwe succeeds in blending together the likes of jazz, hip- hop and soul to create a melody that is both dreamy and enchanting in its composition. Having formed in late 2017, B-ahwe have already caused quite the stir within the Leeds jazz scene, recently performing alongside Tetes De Pois at a Tight Lines x Super Friendz event in October. B-ahwe’s work never fails to impress; her collaboration with Lausse the Cat in particular being worth the listen.’ Pretend Online - Ones to Watch 2019
