Since as long as she can remember Essex born Beverley has been immersed in popular music, starting with the Great American songbook interpreted by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Billie Holiday.
Contemporary artists such as Carol King and Madonna have also had major influences. The key has always been the combination of melody, musical arrangement, emotion, and the story to be told – the more soul searching the better.
Her professional adventure started after leaving her 9-5 job and taking on a singing engagement on the high seas. Her deep love of singing and performing was discovered and her future mapped out.
Since then she has travelled to many parts of the world, appeared on British television, and secured long term residencies at prestigious central London venues. More than happy working as a jazz singer with small groups or fronting a swinging big band, Beverley has performed at some of the finest venues in the land including Ronnie Scotts, the 606 Club, Pizza Express Soho, The Hideaway, Bateaux River Cruises, The Wellesley, The Hippodrome and The Forum.
Whilst cultivating her song writing career she has worked with some of the country’s foremost musicians and producers, and her debut album Butterfly Rising is available to buy on iTunes.
Her passion for all things singing has in recent years been extended to the field of vocal coaching and guiding individuals who need help in exposing hidden talent.
Mavis and I would like to thank you for the excellent performance on Sunday,we had
lots of calls and a couple of people have asked for your contact details which I given them.
I was recommended to Beverley when seeking a versatile Jazz/blues & soul singer with that ‘wow’ factor.
We were launching a new series of Jazz/blues/soul & Motown shows and needed performers with both artistic vocal talent but also being great a performer, too.
Beverley delivered on this big time.
Our feedback from the audience was very very positive.
I was very happy with Beverley, warm hearted, polite, humble and a true professional.
Will definitely call on her again for future shows.
Beverley, sang at my parents 45th wedding anniversary. I wanted to throw a surprise garden party and so I booked Beverley to sing to make the day even more special. Beverley sang beautifully she got my parents up dancing and sang all the songs that everybody loves !! Im so glad I booked her she was just fantastic!
