Beverley was born in New York City and raised on the north side of Chicago, Uptown to be exact. Born to hard working parents who always thrived on doing, providing and giving the best to their children. Aside the hard work there was always room for music. Beverley grew up in a household filled with two generations of music. Her father was twenty years older than her mother. In his early twenties, he worked as a dancer in the USO dance hall in New York. The big band era music was his favorite. Along with jazz and blues. Her mother on the other hand, came from the ‘Woodstock’ era. For years she remembers Saturday mornings was cleaning day. While dusting the furniture and watering the plants, Janis Joplin would be wailing in the background coming from the reel-to-reel recorder. Sunday’s were her fathers day. Family day. Big band music day. Sunday morning’s Bev would wake up to… Benny Goodman, The Dorsey Brothers, Cab Calloway and The Duke Ellington’s Orchestra. Not only did she wake up to the music, she would wake to dancing, Her father taught her how to swing, she was his dance partner for years!
Bev found herself as a d.j. at bars, weddings, parties and karaoke d.j. where she would have to sing…once again-music was in her life. A few months had gone by and Bev was singing in a band. A passion had been awakened. Years of hitting jams and schooling herself, learning music and meeting many musicians is what she credits to where she’s at now. Bev still continues playing the local scene and caught the attention of Europe. She was offered a summer full of shows and completed a tour with Max Dega of Switzerland. Since that first tour, she has returned 5 times in four years. Sweet Bev has honed in on a style that is non other but her own..
