About Irving

Fun and talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist! Anything from musical theatre to opera to singer songwriter and acoustic gigs.
Singing pianist
Stroud
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hey there! Lord Irving is a original and covers artist based in the South-West. My pub gigs are all about fun, sing alongs and childlike nostalgia! I love taking pop and rock covers and performing them with a completely new light. As a classically trained soloist (opera and piano) I am also able to easily play background music for restaurants or cafes / coffee shops etc and I also have lots of original material, should that be something you might be interested in. I'd love any feedback on my promotional package and please feel free to get in touch with questions about fees and arrangements for events! I hope you have a great day and please go to my media to check out my show reels! Irving Music (Carey)

Cez was so brilliant - such a talented performer, musician and singer! A few guests of our party asked for her contact details and repeatedly made a point to tell me how great she was! She played all the artists we said we liked which made us so happy. Worth every penny, couldn’t recommend more highly.

Cez was outstanding, very talented and learnt two songs that were really important to us within a week. She made the whole process really simple and helped make an amazing day extra special.

We were so impressed with Cez, firstly she was lovely to deal with and communicated really clearly about our booking. Secondly, her music made our evening so special, so many guests commented on what a great voice she had and her song choices were perfect for the occasion. Thank you Cez for exceeding our expectations and sharing your musical talents with us, we would highly recommend you.
