Biography

Beverley Kelso (born April 1948) is a Jamaican singer best known as an early member of The Wailers.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, she attended Miss Nembhard Preparatory School and Denham Town Primary School in Kingston.

She was a backing vocalist, and one of the founding members of The Wailers (between 1963 and 1965). According to Kelso, she sang on 25 tracks by the group, the last in late 1965.

Kelso emigrated to the United States in 1979.

The death of Junior Braithwaite in 1999 and the death of Cherry Smith in 2008 left Kelso and Bunny Wailer as the only surviving founding members of the Wailers.

In 2012 she stated that she was planning to write a book about her time in The Wailers. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
