"Beauty is in the details - the devil be damned."
Cheryl Beatty is a folk/blues force to behold. With soaring vocals and a penchant for the poetic, her soulful songs are about social examinations, yearning and passion, loss and love, troubles and tides.
Born in a small rural town in South-Eastern Ontario, Cheryl Beatty surrounded herself with music from a young age. She grew up singing in choirs which lent itself to a fine ear for harmonies. Being a creative mind, she taught herself piano and guitar and naturally gravitated toward songwriting and lyricism. She has a large repertoire of original songs in the folk and blues varieties.
Cheryl's music has been used in independent, feature-length Canadian films, including "A Winter Tale" – by Frances-Anne Solomon (Leda Serene Films, 2007), and "Bull" – by Kent Tessman (The General Coffee Company Film Productions, 2008). Cheryl's song, 'Blue Room Hotels,' was also used in a commercial for Coke Light as part of a submission by Director/Cinematographer, Lloyd Choi, for the MOFILM, Cannes Lions 2010: Make an Ad Video Contest. The ad placed 3rd.
Cheryl currently resides in Toronto, Ontario.
