Beverly Stokes / Bio

A young Americana artist with roots in the classical tradition, Beverly writes songs that embody "an extraordinary mixture of poetry and observation, a gentle lyricism that seems to arise simply, organically from [her] experience and observation."

Originally a classically trained trumpet player and daughter of a bandleader, Beverly picked up the guitar as a "break" from her coursework as a music student. Though in many respects a late-comer to the guitar, she has quickly achieved a high degree of facility on the instrument, as demonstrated by her intricate finger-picking style.

Beverly's music is driven by evocative and intelligent lyrics, with an acoustic, folk-influenced sound. Drawing from influences such as Ryan Adams, Josh Ritter, Chris Pureka, and Gregory Alan Isakov, Beverly is quickly growing a canon of well-crafted, winsome songs.
