Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The most important aspect of performing for me is communication and telling some kind of story with my music. I have often been commended on how personal and heart-felt my performances have been. Having worked extensively in theatre, I enjoy performing an array of genres from comic musical theatre to beautiful, lyrical classical music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Théâtre des Champs-Elysées (Paris) The Bridgewater Hall (Manchester) The Barbican (London) Buxton Opera House Theatre Royal (Plymouth) Albert Hall (Manchester) Notre Dame Cathedral (Paris) L'arc de Triomphe (Paris) Exeter Cathedral Plymouth Cathedral Royal Northern College of Music Leeds College of Music The Renaissance Hotel (Florence, Italy)

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Renée Fleming Anne Sofie von Otter Janet Baker Sarah Vaughan

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

I have several prized performance experiences which include performing at the Music of Night in Plymouth's Naval Barracks to thousands of people a night; performing numerous operatic roles at the Royal Northern College of Music and appearing as a guest soloist at Mount Edgcumbe Proms in the Park.

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know and I will endeavour to work around you.

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

N/A

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to do a quick sound check.

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best for my type of voice and genre. However, I am more than happy to take the requests should it suit my voice / genre- I want to 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 sound system as well as any instruments that are required depending on whether you would like me to perform with backing tracks or live musicians i.e. a pianist.”

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance that I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn then I am happy to do this for you!

It was a great pleasure to meet you and to hear you. I will watch your career with interest so do let me know from time to time what you are doing and any great changes in repertoire. It would be great to have you back to sing with us again. We really enjoyed your performance. -Amici Choir, Wellington

Thank you for some lovely singing last night, and for being so easy to work with. I admired your musicianship, flexibility, self-criticism and confident presence.
