Mini Bio (1)

Beverley Craven is a British singer-songwriter and pianist who achieved a relatively brief period of fame with her eponymous 1991 album, which reached number three and spent a year on the album chart, and its single "Promise Me", a beautiful love ballad which also reached number three, became an instant classic and a popular staple of radio playlists and romantic compilation albums.

Craven was from a musical background. Her mother played classical violin and Craven started playing piano at the age of seven. She attended art college, performed in bands and got her break when she became a backing vocalist for the legendary soul singer Bobby Womack. She was subsequently signed to a recording contract.

"Promise Me" was to be Craven's only top 30 single. Her next album, Love Scenes, charted highly at number four but didn't recapture the success of her debut and only stayed on the chart for 13 weeks. Her third album was her final album to chart to date, reaching number 46. In total, Craven has had six UK hit singles, four which reached the top 40.
