Never one to keep her talents to herself, BASHIYRA has spearheaded various educaConal iniCaCves that uClize the power of music. As a vocal coach she has facilitated singing, song- wriCng and composiCon workshops in schools across many boroughs including the London Borough of Westminster. Dedicated music establishments which have uClised BASHIYRA’s coaching skills include The Midi Music Company and The Rock School.
Her most recent educaConal project is Empirical

Aug 5th 2013 will see the release of the refreshing EP, ONE SHOT AT LOVE, on Expansion Records (UK) a balanced mix of neo-soul, smooth jazz and RnB harnessed by BASHIYRA’s rich, soulful and emoCve voice.
