Bea Maher’s “Can’t Love” explores unrequited love

South London-based singer/songwriter Bea Maher is a product of the myriad of cultures and sounds in the bustling region of London. She soaked in the soulful energies of luminaries like Amy Winehouse, Lianne La Havas, and Cleo Sol, all with a touch of funk. This informed her path as an artist and she finally found her voice within the soul-R&B-pop space. Her latest release: “Can’t Love” is an insightful look at unrequited love and the emotional complexity that arises from it. Over a guitar-laden backdrop, peppered by stirring bass-driven drum grooves and warm pads, Bea leads us on a journey of emotional pain, hurt, and to some extent the highs that come with love in this modern era.
