About Amber Kuti -

Soul, Pop, Funk, duos and Bands
Singer (alto)
Liverpool

I am a soul inspired musician playing in both duos and bands for weddings, functions and events across the country. You may want to look at the duo (piano/guitar and vocals) for something that would work better for background music and quieter events (i.e. drinks receptions). Or alternatively a larger band (vocals, guitar, keys, bass, drums and horns) which aims to get every generation up on there feet! This band option can range from 4-10piece. I have been fortunate enough to play all across the world in countries such as Denmark, Brazil, Nepal an India as well as more locally at events for Songs of Praise and The 2012 Olympics and on a well know movie. I have also played festivals including Kendal Calling, Latitude, El Dorado and Isle of Wight. This experience makes me very understanding of a clients wants and needs and am happy to work with you to create and complete a perfect event. Please get in touch for more videos or any other questions.
