About Abigail

Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Abigail is from Southampton and trained at Trinity Laban in London, gaining a BA Hons in Musical Theatre. With experience singing at weddings, corporate events, production shows and parties, Abi has a whole host of sets to suit any event from laid back acoustics to dance floor fillers. Songs can also be requested if you have any favourites 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. She is nothing less than a worthy traveller of the world with a whole host of musical stories to tell. She is also known locally for her work with The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation being the lead singer for their Christmas Charity Song, as well as performing at Nursing homes including Rose Villa Care, Lavender House and Kitnocks. 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 isolation and/or lockdown restrictions 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

Our experience with Abi was excellent she is a versatile and accomplished singer and she complimented our party perfectly with her well chosen sets and a few of our favourites. On top of that she is an extremely helpful and pleasant young lady. She brought to our party just the atmosphere I was hoping for and many of my guests were most complimentary about her performances. Before the party she communicated well and it was easy to plan her performance to our tastes. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Abi was fantastic, from booking to planning the songs to the actual day - she was great to deal with. Abi made it really easy and provided guidance with the song choice to get the party going! Abi has the most incredible voice, and created a wonderful atmosphere for all our friends. I can't rate Abi enough, and we will definitely be booking again for the next event. Thank you so much

Abi responded quickly to my initial inquiry to sing for my Mum's online birthday party. She was very helpful and flexible with the choice of songs, and platform to use for the performance. Her performance was excellent and appreciated by everyone. It was a great start to the evening and set a good atmosphere for an enjoyable online party. I would thoroughly recommend Abi to anyone who is looking to make a special online celebration.

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.
