From a lovely room in a horrible house somewhere between Watford gap and the Land of Oz, Beija Flo is a calm kind of frenzy, fashioning songs for doomed lovers and don’t know why’s.
With bitter lust, the love lost, dream boat lah-di-dah in a jam jar. Tearjerker and easy to talk to. Naturally, Beija Flo.
A true polymath Beija Flo is a musician who has created her own universe pulling together elements of activism, performance art and education. Genre bending, her sound is one that encompasses everything from open hearted balladry through to acerbic punk. Tackling everything from love and relationships through to mental health and her struggles with MRKH syndrome, she is truly an artist for our times juxtaposing her darkest moments against moments of enduring hope.
Over the past two years, Beija has been receiving strong support within the Merseyside area from Getintothis (who called her track ‘Mary’ their track of the year’), Bido Lito ! and strong support from BBC Introducing. She has also received strong national support from LouderThanWar and Birp! (who added her to their ‘Best of BIRP! 2009 – Current’ playlist.
Over the past year she has supported Witch Fever and Bodega and is currently supporting International Teachers of Pop on their national tour with tour dates including Hebden Bridge, Newcastle and Liverpool. The last year has seen her play Brudenell Social Club and The Eagle Inn with festival slots including Sound City, The Alternative Great Escape and Northern Green Gathering.
Her latest single release ‘Nudes’ came with an accompanying art exhibition in January 2020 at Output in Liverpool and an appearance on the cover of Bido Lito.
