Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England, UK
Born 15 December 1906, singer Eve Becke started her professional career in the late 1920s as a chorus girl before joining Jack Hulbert's organisation. She was in the chorus of "The House That Jack Built" and "Folly to be Wise". After a three-and-a-half year period as a cabaret artist, she joined Jack Hylton's organisation in variety and subsequently sang on a handful of his records. However, these weren't her first recordings; her debut was in 1932 singing "Was That The Human Thing To Do" with Roy Fox's band (at the time directed by Lew Stone). Read more...
