Celebrating Artists & Creatives
Excerpts from December 6, 2018 interview with Voyage Chicago:
When I returned to the States, I was ready to open new doors and make more music. I met an alternative rock band in Chicago and as their new lead singer we performed all original material and were picked up by an indie label. I went into the recording studio to record and help produce our debut album and it was during that time that I was attracted to the recording process as a means to take music further. I soon set up my own personal studio and am grateful for where it has taken me ever since.
Please tell us more about your music.
I compose music for film and multimedia. When presented with an emotion, concept, or visual image, I enjoy the process of encounter and response. Creating a soundscape is where the music begins. The connection is already there… I just need to discover it. That’s the hook for me. And when it all comes together, it often feels organic. I find this very rewarding. . . . “
Beverly is a creative that makes music, composing original work for independent films and more recently for a series of Ronald McDonald House Charities video projects. She has also had the honor of having one of her pieces featured internationally at the National Concert Hall in Taipei, Taiwan, in the ‘Ultimate Beauty, Crazy Love’ concert series, which was performed by Taiwanese-American TV personality and violinist, Janet Hsieh, and vocalist Marielle.
Her global influences include listening to the call to prayer sung from the minaret in Manama, Bahrain while living abroad in the Middle East . She also lived four years in Milano, Italy, learning the language of her muse. She’s known to make a delicious pasta aglio olio.
