South London Musician B-ahwe Shares New Track ‘Infected’

Emerging from the diverse musical hub of South London, alternative singer-songwriter B-ahwe has graced listeners with her latest single, “Infected”. The track follows her previous hit “Ride 2 Nowhere”, which garnered admiration from influential figures like Victoria Jane, Jyoty, and Dan Alani.

Crafted during the height of lockdown, when the world pivoted to virtual interactions and phone calls became lifelines, “Infected” beautifully encapsulates the intense infatuation phase of a relationship.

The song paints the picture of endless conversations, with neither party willing to hang up. B-ahwe’s entrancing vocals, teamed with dreamlike production, co-produced with her close friend and collaborator TAMBALA, make the song a soulful delight.

Hailing from Nottingham and of Polish descent, the 27-year-old artist has been using music as a mirror to reflect her life’s experiences, navigating themes from self-worth and mental health to feminism and relationships.

B-ahwe’s educational journey in Jazz and Popular Music at Leeds Conservatoire led her to musical companions TAMBALA, LAUSSE THE CAT, and Nix Northwest. These interactions paved the way for her unique musical identity, inspired by artists like Joy Crookes, Ojerime, and Biig Piig, and even legends like Erykah Badu and Sarah Vaughan.

Live performances are B-ahwe’s forte. She recently showcased her talent at noteworthy events such as BBC Introducing: Summer By The River, The Great Escape, and Gilles Peterson’s ‘We Out Here’ festival. The past year has seen her win the coveted Drake YolanDa Award and tour alongside notable names like Oscar Jerome, Curtis Harding, and Nix Northwest, granting her the privilege to perform at iconic venues in the UK and Holland.

While B-ahwe has already crafted a name for herself in solo music, her collaborations with artists like Nix Northwest, LAUSSE THE CAT, and Mitekiss only amplify her versatility. She has earned nods from industry mainstays like Jamz Supernova, Jack Saunders, and Gilles Peterson.

Blurring the lines between Jazz, R&B, and Soul, B-ahwe’s music speaks of authenticity and escapism. This year, she was chosen as one of the support acts for the ‘Step Up’ fund, a collaboration between Amazon Music and FAC.

As she drops her second single for the year, fans can also look forward to her upcoming 26% mixtape and a UK tour spanning six locations. Listen to “Infected” below.
