BRIT-Award winning singer Beverley Craven became a household name in the early 90’s with the release of her 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’.
Beverley is finally back on tour and releases her new album ‘Change Of Heart’, her long-awaited and perhaps most personal album to date.
This brand new album of personal and heartfelt songs written by Beverley reflect several hugely challenging years where Ms. Craven has been through divorce and survived breast cancer.
Enjoy a remarkably honest, revealing and Exclusive interview with Beverley and Alex Belfield recorded August 2014…..
Now in 2009, after a lengthy break raising her family, Beverley is back with ‘Close To Home’, her first studio album in ten years.
Beverley was born in Sri Lanka on July 28th, 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. She also proved to be a talented swimmer, going on to represent her county in national championships.
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. The next few years saw her struggling to find the all-important break, making ends meet with a succession of day jobs whilst 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.
