Bishat is a new Swedish artist with roots in Ethiopia and Eritrea. She writes and performs dark soulful pop with influences from contemporary R&B. She was brought up in a musical family and is the little sister of Junip's member Elias Araya. She got her first taste of making music when she at the tender age of 13 wrote her first song with José González.

Her debut track is a mashup combination of some of the music that has influenced her; The Weeknd, Daniel Johnston and fellow Swede Lykke Li. She will release her first 'official' single in early 2016.

Some Things is produced by Swedish producer tamokillme and Bishat.
Bishat's potential is clear.
