Beverly Tawiah, also known as Tawiah, is a female soul/R&B singer from South London, England. She has been a backup singer for Corinne Bailey Rae, The Guillemots,[1] and Mark Ronson's touring band, The Version Players, with whom she toured internationally.[2]

After graduating from the BRIT School,[3] Tawiah self-released her debut EP In Jodi's Bedroom[4] (the title referring to the location of the recording) on her own record label, Bush Girl. She subsequently received the attention of Gilles Peterson, who championed her song "Watch Out" in 2007, and also named her as the winner of his Worldwide Award for Best Newcomer in the following year.[5][6]

In 2011, Tawiah appeared in the BBC documentary Secrets of the Pop Song,[7][8][9] in which she appeared with the songwriter Guy Chambers and Mark Ronson, to sing lyrics for the song "Ghost" which was composed on the show.

Tawiah was most recently featured on the 2014 album Otherness by UK musician Kindness. She is featured on the track "Why Don't You Love Me" alongside Devonte Hynes.
