Beverly Jo Scott (born 15th May 1959), also known as B. J. Scott, is an American-born singer-songwriter living in Brussels, Belgium.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Born in Deer Park, Alabama, Beverly Jo Scott grew up nearby in Bay Minette, where, as a teen, she began singing.

She moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, then to California and, ultimately, in 1982, to Europe after a trip to Brussels, Belgium, resulted in her living there.[1] In Europe, she has regularly performed in France and Germany at festivals and large music halls. She has been developing Planet Janis, a tribute show to the late Janis Joplin. Another project she's developed is “Swamp Cabaret,” a one-woman multimedia show focusing on the Gulf Coast.[3]

In June 2011, after living 30 years abroad, Scott performed in her home state at the Saenger Theatre in Mobile, Alabama, as part of a "Live at Space” concert series.[4]

In September 2011,Chickfest's featured artists included Scott, who Press-Register Entertainment described as building "a thriving career in Belgium over the last three decades, but maintains a legion of fans back home, thanks to the earthy passion of her music."[5]

Radio & Television work[edit]

Scott began serving as a judge on The Voice Belgique, a Belgian edition of the highly successful multinational singing competition franchise The Voice, in November 2011.[2]

She works also for Classic 21, a French-speaking radio programme, which is broadcast from Brussels, on Sundays.
