Beverley Reppion (aka Isha D) began her singing career as one third of a cabaret trio, aged 18, touring the UK and Europe.

In the late 80s, Beverley became a session vocalist for Pentagon studios, and was asked to go on tour as a backing vocalist for a band (rehearsing there) called Great and Lady Soul, who were supporting London Beat.  During that tour she was spotted by the musical director from London Beat, who put her forward to be a backing vocalist for soul singer Geoffrey Williams, she went on to be his backing vocalist for his first tour signed to EMI and managed by Hit and Run music. They supported Wet Wet Wet and Paul Young on their arena tours.

Later Beverley went on to be a backing vocalist for OMD, and sang backing vocals on ”Pandora’s Box”, as well as appearing on “Top of the Pops” with them.  She went on to sing backing vocals on “Sailing on the Seven Seas”, and numerous tracks on the “Liberator” album.   It was during this time she became involved with Olympic records and performed on a track by Mr Peach called “I Need Somebody”.

While working with OMD, Beverley met Phil Coxon, their keyboard player. He also produced and did remixes on “Sugar Tax”, and “Liberator”. They went on to form Isha-D and co-wrote “Stay Tonight”, which was initially an R n B track.

Cleveland City picked up on this track as well as their first album. “Stay Tonight” was remixed by producers from Cleveland City and it became an underground favourite on the dance music scene.

Isha D appeared on the cover of Mix Mag, describing the track as an “anthem alert”.  They went in to achieve mainstream success reaching number 1 in the dance charts, and number 5 with the original version in the R n B charts.  The song peaked at number 28 in the UK national charts for 2 weeks.

Beverley has continued to record, perform and write.  She was a backing vocalist for Errol Brown the voice of Hot Chocolate and performed vocals on World of Shoes track “I am Strong”. This was released in the US and was remixed by Junior Vasquez appearing on his “Twillo” album. Her writing and vocal abilities and arrangements are still called upon by many dance music producers to this day.
