U.K. Jazz Singer Beverley Beirne has headlined festivals and performed at leading clubs throughout the UK and Europe, including headlining at Marsden Jazz Festival 2019 as part of the JJWTHF Tour, Ronnie Scotts Upstairs, Pizza Express Jazz Club, 606 Club, Venice Jazz Club, Gregory’s Jazz Club in Rome and Cleo Lane’s prestigious venue The Stables, to name a few. Beverley recorded her debut jazz album Seasons of Love in 2010, to a hugely positive response, including plays on BBC Introducing and reviews in Jazz Journal and Jazzwise followed by a tour of the album at venues such as Callander Jazz and Blues Festival, Marsden Jazz Festival and Pizza Express, The Pheasantry. In 2015, after being raised in a household that celebrated both Jazz and 80’s pop, Beverley then combined the two for her freewheeling, stylistically expansive second album Jazz Just Wants To Have Fun. Singing with an honest, heartfelt, deep-soul sensuality and scatting with abandon in places that would do Ella proud, she swings both lightning fast and seductively slow on clever and stylish re-imaginings of perfectly chosen 70’s and 80s hits. The brain-child of Beverley, the project was conceived and then created after a Christmas gig at Manchester jazz club Matt & Phred’s after Beverley performed her jazz version of ‘Come On Feel The Noise,’ to an unsuspecting audience who loved it. Beverley went on to co-arrange more of her chosen 70’s and 80’s pop tunes for JJWTHF with London pianist Sam Watt’s.
