Beverly Jayne was born in East London, South Africa to a family in love with music. From rocker dad, to concert pianist turned music teacher, gran. She is renowned as a phenomenal performer with a distinctive unique vocal style. Her song writing is powerful, her stage presence is unforgettable.
Hailed as one of the great female rock singers in South Africa, Beverly Jayne has made her mark fronting SA band Concussion Girl (most noted for the saucy single "Tie me up" featured on worldwide release horror movie).
Having released two albums with Band Concussion Girl, Beverly Jayne is finally recording much anticipated debut solo album.
This album somehow straddles the line between keeping fresh and feeling strangely reminiscent of the songs that changed the role of women in rock in the early 90's. The lyrics are raw, honest and instantly relatable.
This album has a little bit of everything you used to expect from a hit Rock/Pop album, from the raw rock energy of "Walk Away" to the heart breakingly beautiful love song "By Your Side" and everything in between.
SAMA winning producer Paul McIvers' years of experience producing an impressive variety of music styles (from R&B and hip hop, to alternative, pop rock and gospel)and passion for music are evident on this album.
