Just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful evening. Highlight was definitely having the pleasure of listening to you perform. All of my guests had a lovely evening and commented on the lovely ambience your music helped create. Very interactive performer who even took the time to allow the children to join in..which they throughly enjoyed. Very kind friendly and professional performer and I would highly recommend for birthdays or special occasions. Thanks again Caroline :-)

As an experienced Musician, playing in several bands and organising gigs around the West Midlands, one of the consistently dependable and quality Acoustic Acts I have had the pleasure of regularly working with is Caroline Bella. Caroline has been delivering very fine musical performances, as an excellent Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist, at my gigs for the last 12 years; both as a Support Act and as a Headline Artist in her own right. This young woman really is a class act, with the ability to tailor her material to whatever type of audience is in the room. To this end, I have seen audiences, ranging from Rockers to Folkies, having their attention completely held, with her beautifully played mixture of excellent original material and well-chosen covers. Caroline has proved to be extremely reliable, being thoroughly professional in attitude, always turning up promptly, sound-checking efficiently, without fuss, and always delivering a fine performance. In summation, she is a real pleasure to work with; I cannot recommend her highly enough. Paul “Professor Firestick” Miller

Caroline Bella performed at my birthday party. Her acoustic songs were a perfect compliment to our meal and then she played some more upbeat songs afterwards that we could sing along and dance to. She was very professional, and I would definitely book her again! There were lots of compliments! Thanks Caroline!
