Born in Alabama, the deep south of the US, and cradled to the sounds of delta blues, gospel and country, Beverly Jo decided at a young age to travel across her native America.  
The winding turbulent paths of her life finally led her to Europe, where the rainy but tender hearted country of Belgium became a refuge for her.  First playing in the streets, then in bars and clubs, her reputation for having a voice of rare sensuality and warmth quickly helped her move on to become one of the most sought after professional vocalists in the old world.

She worked with such talents as, The Sparks, Elliott Murphy, Ricky Byrd, Deep Forest, Niagara, Alain Chamfort, Souchon, The Scabs, Arno, Maurane, Zap Mama, Matmatah, Stoppok, Francis Cabrel, Eddie Mitchel and Paul Personne.
Along with her producer and acolyte Michel Gudanski she created and recorded the celebrated duo with Arno “Jean Balthazaarrr “ that hit the charts in France and remains a classic favorite of the French public and media today.

Parallel to this she always kept up her personal career, recording for herself and touring almost non-stop with her band since 1991. from the grandest of venues to the smallest of clubs... featuring and headlining in some of the largest festivals in Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Beverly Jo is also a singer/songwriter of exceptional talent. Not only for herself, but for other artists as well. She has collaborated and co-written with Deep Forest (grammy award for World Music) Stoppok of Germany,  as well as Belgium's Stan Van Samang (platinum cd Welcome Home, and new cd King in my Head) The Blackbox Revelation (NME's young discovery in the UK) ascending rock group TriggerFinger ... just to name a few.
