The Team

The Team
Liz Biddle

Founding director Liz Biddle read Music at Aberystwyth University and later gained an MA in Performance Studies at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. She is an accomplished musician and plays bassoon, piano and guitar. She founded Upbeat Recordings in 1989 to record some of the managed artists - and this has now become firmly established as one of the leading labels for jazz in the UK.


Beryl Korman

She was joined at Upbeat in 1995 by Beryl Korman who graduated with a BA in History from Warwick University before studying singing at The Royal Academy of Music. Beryl was elected Associate in 1996 for distinguished musicianship. She still finds time to sing and her 40s tribute show Forces Sweethearts is touring extensively. The team is completed by Vicki Johnson, who keeps the books up to date – and Breeze – a wonderful cream coloured golden retriever who helps keep stress levels low!
