She's not known to the American
public but that's about to change because in her native UK she has
scored Top 10 status on the R&B charts with the track "On
and On". She is Beverlei
Brown, a beautifully talented
(and sexy I might add) young artist to emerge on the UK soul music
The album's called 'Next
to you' (Dome) and it has
already got the industry buzzing with excitement. The producers and
writers on the set include Ronnie
Daley of The
Full Crew, Simon
Payne and the Full Flava team
of Rob Derbyshire
and Paul Mullings.
The album is a mixture of some solid R&B flavour mixed with 2-Step,
house and a dash of jazz to fill the brew. Songs of note include 'Love
you yes', 'Somebody
knows how you feel', 'Part-time
Lover' and the current single
'Gonna get over you'
(already released in Japan along with the album as well). Beverlei also
co-wrote six of the tracks on the album again proving just what a talent
this young lady really is.
The lead off single to be
released in the UK is 'Best
Friend' which can also be
found on the Dome compilation CD/LP 'Soul
Power'. Look for the album to
be released in the UK late September. Again no US distribution so if you
want a copy, jump on the net and visit her label www.domemusic.co.uk.
Ask for Peter or Santosh (if you call) and they'll take good care of
you. Most definitely a Ty-D pick here
