About Caitlin

Winner of Buskfest 2022. Queens University Music And Audio Production Graduate. Full time performer/Singing Teacher
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I recently graduated from Queens University with a 2.1 in Music and Audio Production. Since then, I have been working full time as a Singer/Singing teacher in Belfast. Recently I was chosen as the winner of Buskfest 2022, which is something I am so grateful for. This has opened a lot of doors for me, such as working alongside the council for various projects within Northern Ireland. My long setlist allows me to tailer my performances to the audience. I can do upbeat, 'sing along' style music if this is what you are interested in, however I'm also happy to slow things down and blend into the background a bit if that suits the event better. I perform regularly in Belfast city centre in music venues and bars, providing live music for a range of events. I absolutely adore performing at weddings in particular. It is such a pleasure to be a part of a couples big day. Recently I released my first single to all major streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music called “Bad Company”. I can offer live music as a soloist, or as part of a two piece band which includes myself and drums/cajon.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I can take requests in advance and on the night which is something clients have been very happy with. I can tailor my setlist to suit the vibe on the night, whether it be upbeat, or relaxed.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Merchant Hotel Haslem Hotel Thirsty goat Dirty onion Filthy McNastys The Northern Whig Too many to list!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

A few of my favourite artists are Taylor swift, Mumford and sons, Florence and the machine, and Ed Sheeran.

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

I performed at Solitude park after winning Buskfest NI, which was an amazing experience and very fun!

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

I always try to be as flexible as possible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set, we provide this for an additional charge depending on the time frame.

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on the size of venue, set up times can vary. However on average and set up will take about 20 mins. This can be straight before the performance starts; however for weddings and corporate events, I aim to have everything ready at least 1 hour before starting.

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

The 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 about suggestions to find out what will work best for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I have my own PA and monitor etc which is more than enough for most events; However if the venue is very large an additional PA system may have to be hired in which case an additional charge will need to be considered.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in the 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'm happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £5 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
