Hailing from Singapore, Bevlyn is a talented multi-lingual singer-songwriter. Her ability to sing in English, Mandarin, Japanese and French gains resonance with listeners of various ethnicities in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan, France, America etc.
A true original, Bevlyn is one of the pioneering indie artists in Singapore to start the trend of DIY albums in Singapore's music scene. In 2008, Bevlyn released a 6-track EP album “Lonely Afternoon” which won the 'Best Independent Album' award at the Singapore Entertainment Awards 2009. The album showcases her versatility by featuring five original songs and a gypsy-jazz arranged cover of French classic ‘La Vie En Rose’.
The album led Bevlyn to be signed to Japanese label S2S in November that year, and she subsequently released “You Are My Angel” (2009), “Bistro Affair” (2010), and “Feel About You” (2011).
Notably, “Bistro Affair” sees Bevlyn as possibly the only Singaporean singer to have released a full album of French jazz chansons, cementing her status as a versatile singer-song writer in the music scene. The popular album charted top 3 (HMV) in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Her 4th album “Feel About You” features more original songs amongst classics like “My eyes adored you” (Frankie Valli), “Ordinary World” (Duran Duran), “The One You Love” etc. It also features the popular closing theme song 《保温》from Mediacorp’s blockbuster television series, 《小娘惹》 (Little Nyonya).
In March 2012, Bevlyn was chosen to represent Singapore in the HK Pop-Asian Music Festival in Hong Kong. She is also nominated later in the year for the prestigious Yahoo! Singapore 9 Award under the Entertainment category.
She continues to pursue her dreams as a singer-songwriter the indie route with a deep passion for music on the global stage. Flexing her creative and entrepreneur qualities, Bevlyn tied up with Pledgemusic to connect with supporters to raise funds for her second indie album 《我認識過的人》(The People I've Known), released in April 2013. A method rarely used in this region of the world, a portion of the funds raised went to “Food from the heart”, a charity she's passionate about. Bevlyn successfully raised USD$5K for the new album's production.
Other than working on the publicity for her new album, Bevlyn was one of the guest artists invited to perform at Spring Wave Singapore/ Singapore Entertainment Awards 2013. She was also invited to write a theme song for Miss World Singapore 2013.
