Award winning soul singer Bashiyra launches her new album at Hideaway.
Bashiyra established her career working as a backing singer for artists ranging from the iconic Queen, Michael Bolton, to the legendary Patti Labelle and Diana Ross.
2009 saw the release of her refreshing debut, ‘Thought You Knew’, a balanced mix of neo-soul, jazz and dance harnessed by her rich, soulful and emotive voice. This successful self-release led to Bashiyra receiving “The Soul Baby Live Award 2011” and in the same year, Black Women in the Arts awarded her ‘The Nina Simone Award’ for her outstanding work in the area of jazz (an award also acknowledged and endorsed by the official legacy estate of Dr Nina Simone).
‘One Shot At Love’ (released in 2013 on Expansion Records) is a balanced mix of neo-soul, smooth jazz and RnB harnessed by Bashiyra’s rich, soulful and emotive voice as she shared song-writing contributions with Amar Naik and David Nathan (founder of SoulMusic.com, music historian, billboard contributor and global authority on soul music).
