Beabadoobee is a 20 year old singer-songwriter born in the Phillipines but raised in London. She's labelmates with The 1975 and Wolf Alice as part of the Dirty Hit stable. While lockdown has paused any live performances, she has recorded a special acoustic version of her last single Care, which is Radio X's Record Of The Week.

After teaching herself to play via YouTube tutorials, Bea's first song Coffee gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days through a fan-uploaded video.
