Brit-Award Winning Singer Beverley Craven at The Atkinson

Brit-Award Winning Singer Beverley Craven at The Atkinson

BRIT-Award winning singer Beverley Craven became a household name in the early 90’s with the release of her eponymous debut album which became a worldwide hit, selling more than two million copies.

Her 1991 single, Promise Me, went on to become a huge hit across Europe and she followed this up with a string of chart successes including Memories, Holding On, Woman To Woman and Love Scenes.

In 2009, Beverley returned  with Close To Home, her first studio album in ten years.

Born in Sri Lanka on July 28, 1963. Her family relocated back to the UK when she was 18 months old and settled in Hertfordshire.

Encouraged by her mother, an accomplished classical violinist, Beverley began taking piano lessons at the age of seven.

After a brief stint at Art College, Beverley left home aged 18 and moved to London, intent on carving out a career in the music business and pursuing her musical ambitions with session work and pub gigs with various bands.

In the late 80s Beverley’s perseverance paid off when she was offered a job as a backing vocalist on a European tour with soul legend Bobby Womack, and then in 1988, the big break finally came when one of her demo tapes fell into the hands of Epic Records who immediately offered her a recording contract.
