About Ailis

A dreamlike female vocal, sweet and honey-filled but with an edge - as heard on Radio 1, Sunday Brunch, Isle of Wight Festival and more!
Singer
Cheshire, UK
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am a vocalist and guitarist with over a decade of live experience. My vocals and songs have had numerous plays on Radio 1, Radio X, Sunday Brunch and several Spotify Editorial playlists. As a live vocalist and guitarist, I have played iconic festivals such as Isle of Wight, supported the Kaiser Chiefs and played sessions on 6 Music. As a singer/guitarist I can be versatile to suit most audiences, with my diverse range of experience I know how to play to a crowd - whether that’s providing an atmosphere in the background or ramping it up to get the party started! My set mainly consists of indie, dance, rock and pop. I also take special requests make your day extra special. Why have me at your event? Well, adding live music creates an atmosphere that playing a song through a speaker can't replicate. Being a multi instrumentalist, I can cater to budget and venue size, whether that's filling the presence of a big stage or squeezing into a corner. On top of this, my unique vocal tone and arrangements will add a touch of individuality to your day, making your guests feel like your event truly is a one of a kind. With a live performer, the atmosphere becomes more enchanting, the event is more unique, and your guests are more entertained, creating memories that will be talked about for years to come. If you require me in the daytime and will be having a DJ in the evening, I can also offer DJ Live percussion services. I love DJ live sets because it's great to help everyone let their hair down on the dance floor and add more presence to the DJ's tracks. I have a lot of experience in this area as I was a session drummer for 7 years and regularly play percussion with DJs in the UK and Europe. Don't hesitate to enquire about this as an add on service.

A dreamlike female vocal, sweet and honey-filled, but with a gnarly rock edge; notes are held with ease. The swagger and cool on this stage before us from our front woman is incredible, even jumping down from the stage to sing amongst the crowd.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I provide my clients with a whole experience, from the excitement of planning in the zoom consultation up to the day of their event. My clients love the unique arrangement of my covers, where I can play something to bring a tear to your eye or play something to hype you up for the rest of your event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Castlefield Bowl, O2 Apollo, various Wedding Venues, Manchester Academy, London Scala, Isle of Wight Festival, Y Not Festival, Reading and Leeds, Tramlines Festival, Neighbourhood Weekender

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Nirvana, Taylor Swift, Amy Winehouse, Paramore, Catfish and The Bottlemen

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

It's got to be a toss up between Castlefield Bowl supporting Kaiser Chiefs in front of 10,000 people or playing Isle of Wight Festival!

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

I always try my 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 me know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. I can keep a playlist running through my PA in-between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically. Depending on venue specs I can also bring my own PA.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you for free. There is a fee of £18.75 for any additional songs after this request to account for rehearsal times etc.
