Abigail is from Southampton and trained at Trinity Laban in London, gaining a BA Hons in Musical Theatre.

With a love and passion for travel, Abi has been performing on board Cruise Ships such as the Marco Polo, Astor (Cruise and Maritime Voyages), The Black Watch (Fred Olsen Cruise Lines) Arcadia (P&O) and the Queen Victoria (Cunard) performing in production shows and cabaret's such as James Bond, Rock and Roll and Motown Highlights.

Music is known to have a real impact on the quality of peoples lives, and having seen this first hand after working with Pimlico Opera at HMP Erlestoke Abi actively saw the positive impact it had on inmates. Abi has also been based in Greece working for Sani & Ikos resorts. NEW PERSONALISED MUSIC MESSAGES To help raise spirits and smiles during the current lockdown I've launched a personalised Musical Messages service through Encore. It let's you request a video performance from myself, uniquely customised for a loved one. As well as supporting musicians who can no longer perform live, £2.50 from every video fee goes to the NHS, supporting the heroic work of our doctors and nurses during this crisis. You can request a video from me under the ‘Prices’ tab SEND LOVE IN A TIME OF LOCKDOWN

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Abigail will always try her best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let Abi know. You will also receive an email a few days before the event to confirm all details as well and this can be followed by a phone call if necessary.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes absolutely. Abigail can provide background music on an iPod in between the sets. We just ask that you and your guests do not touch the PA system or alter the volume or any of the setting without our permission.

How much time do you need to set up?

We can usually set up our system in about 20 minutes, however we always allow an hour before the performance time so that we can sound check if possible. As soon as the PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, each set list is catered to your specific event and agreed with the client beforehand. Specific songs or genres may be requested.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely. I will provide a full PA system and wireless microphone along with a microphone stand and extension leads if needed. All that is required from you is a plug and a small performance space.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there is a special song you would like please let Abi know in advance so that she can learn it for you. Additional fees may apply for this service to take into account rehearsal times and sourcing music.

Abi was professional, arrived early with her equipment, had planned her songs in advance and was perfect for the event - a charity fashion gala at the Grand Harbour Hotel. Can highly recommend her.
