Besh is a Pop/R&B artist from Columbus, Ohio of West African heritage. Besh discovered her passion for singing at a very young age. Ever since she was 3 years old, she would gather her family to watch her perform her original song and dance routines. Growing up, Besh spent grade school singing at various talent shows, in show choir, women's chorus, and musical theater. She even was known to sing the national anthem at her high school's basketball games fairly regularly. Besh's career as a professional singer looked promising until her life took a detour and she found herself in a cult at 17 years old. 

After years of suppressing her childhood dream, Besh courageously decided to step out on her own and rebuild her life, apart from religion. After taking time to heal from the spiritual abuse she had endured, she naturally reconnected with her passion for singing. It was at that time that she moved to Los Angeles to make her dream come true. 

Besh's sound is a perfect soulful blend of her musical roots, influenced by her childhood inspirations Aaliyah and Christina Aguilera, to name a few. Besh embodies a nuanced vocal style: a little powerhouse, a little rasp, with an underlying sultry tonality. In addition, her natural gift at songwriting coupled with the innate charisma she effortlessly exudes on stage sets her apart not only as a true vocalist, but as a performer.

Besh is currently writing her debut EP, expected to be released summer 2018.
