Berney will be supporting Brian on four of his UK dates, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester & Birmingham. Don't miss the opportunity to see her live:
“I love the sound of your voice, your control” - Tom Jones. Combining vocal ability, song writing chops and magnetic stage presence; Berney is contemporary blues and soul.
Born in South Wales in 1991, 22 year old Berney can add her name to the list of great Welsh voices hailing from the region, having already had approval from the likes of Tom Jones and Steve Balsamo. Inspired by singers such as Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, Oleta Adams, her song writing echoes elements of her 90s childhood and yet draws on the sophistication of writers such as Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell.
She's worked with an eclectic mix of talent; Joss Stone, Balsamo, Steve Bush, True Tiger, Juan Zelada and many more. In 2012, she was scouted for BBC’s The Voice, making the final 18 and watched by 11 million people. Her profile has since risen, with her videos reaching close to 2 million views. She also sang for for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in Portuguese last year - 2012 was very busy - and now the spring will see her first solo EP released, showcasing strong songwriting and heartfelt vocals.
Supporting Brian on his UK tour is a poignant and special event for Berney as, aged 6, the first live concert she attended was his.
