Beabadoobee, born in London to Filipino parents, is a name you should remember and an exciting artist to watch. She grew up listening to a mix of OPM (Filipino traditional and modern original music compositions) and ’80s pop ‘n’ rock music.
By her teens, she had discovered indie rock and was listening to artists like Kimya Dawson, Karen O & Yeah Yeah Yeahs, (Sandy) Alex G, and Florist. As well as The Beatles and Chet Baker.
In 2017, at the age of 17, she received her first guitar and quickly taught herself how to play by watching tutorial videos online. That same year, she recorded her “Coffee” song in a friend’s bedroom and uploaded it online.

A mellow ditty inspired by her relationship with her then-boyfriend, “Coffee” went viral. The labels took notice, and Beabadoobee issued her debut EP, entitled, “Lice” on Columbia before signing with the independent Dirty Hit (home to The 1975, Pale Waves, and Wolf Alice).
