About Cloudy

Cloudy is an acoustic pop artist who has done thousands of gigs, and toured nationally with Toploader, The Hoosiers and Dodgy!
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Cloudy is an up-and-coming London artist pioneering the introduction of a new sound: progressive soul with a touch of pop. Whether accompanied by drums and bass, or solo, Cloudy delivers one thing that other artists don't: the non-stop set. The songs flow from one to the other through beautiful improvised transitional sections, allowing the music to breathe and do the talking for itself. It truly is a captivating continuous mix of original material, packed with push-and-pull, catchy hooks and beautiful melodies inspired by her Colombian heritage, designed to catch your attention and stay in your head for days. Cloudy's music is influenced by Estas Tonne, Tom Misch, The Skints and KT Tunstall, and has received attention from BBC Introducing London, All Star FM, The Huffington Post, GIGsoup, Music of the Future, Pure Magazine and Vents Magazine so far. She has performed nationwide this summer supporting Dodgy, The Hoosiers and Toploader during the Foodies Festival national tour. However, she is also active in her local community, performing at numerous London venues including Omeara, Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen, Notting Hill Arts Club and The Garage, and it was at one of these shows that she was scouted for a songwriting scholarship at Berklee College of Music. She is now signed with Talent Banq, a brand new live agency with an ethos she shares: music is about collaboration, not competition. Cloudy is proudly endorsed by G7th Capos.

Cloudy played for us at our Wedding on 11th August. She is incredibly talented, professional and friendly and provided a fantastic atmosphere throughout. We will 100% be asking her back for future events. Please book her. You will not be disappointed.

We booked Cloudy for our drinks reception at our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Lovely voice, great song choices and we had lots of feedback from guests about how great she was too. We will definitely be recommending her to others planning events. Thanks Cloudy!

We asked Cloudy to play at our wedding in 2016 because we had previously had her play in the pub we ran and loved her performances. Not only did Cloudy accept but she asked what songs we would like, put her own twist on them and sent them back to see what we thought. Cloudy singing as I walked down the isle made my day very special, it was personal and sentimental. Everyone commented on how professional and beautiful her voice was, we are looking forward to seeing her again in the future!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

That I can adapt to what you want! Whether it’s a chill background vibe or an engaging performance to get people dancing, I can switch things up to match the atmosphere you’re going for.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Too many to count! The fanciest is probably The Manoir, but my favourites tend to be outside in people’s gardens!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Oh wow, how much time have you got?! I guess the short answer is probably KT Tunstall, Jacob Collier and Alicia Keys

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

For sure the Foodies Festival national tour! It was awesome opening up for Toploader, The Hoosiers and Dodgy to crowds of thousands.

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

That’s okay! As long as you can let me know with as much notice as possible, I’ll do my best to accommodate your timing changes. Just talk to me about it, and we’ll sort it out together.

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

Absolutely! I have several playlists that you can listen to ahead of time, to make sure the vibe is what you want. And if it isn’t, we’ll make a playlist together. To clarify, this is simply an iPod service, not a DJ performance.

How much time do you need to set up?

For a solo performance, 30 minutes before the performance time. For a band performance, 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up, we can pop on a playlist to help get your guests in the mood!

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

Certainly! I have my repertoire that has been made from years of performing, but if you have any special requests I’m happy to add these to the set list, as long as you let me know ahead of time.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I bring my own instruments and PA system. If you already have a PA system that you would prefer me to use, that’s fine too.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely! I want to make sure you get everything from the music you need to make your event special. Let me know ahead of time and I will play any song requests you have.
