Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients always tell me they love my ability to read the room and get everyone dancing and singing along. They are always pleased with the choice of songs and the energy it gives to their event. I'm told the live music always makes it that extra special and makes it a night to remember!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Since moving to London 7 years ago, I have been performing at pubs and venues all across London, such as Dog & Fox, Hedsor House and countless more. I most recently sung at the launch of Ed Sheeran's new 'Sheeran Loopers'. I've also had the chance to play Oporto, O2 Academy Islington, The Waiting Room, The Grace and The Courtyard Theatre.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

It sounds cliché but Ed Sheeran truly is one of the reasons I initially picked up a guitar! I first started out as a singer and I wanted to be able to write my own songs, so I started playing guitar. Other huge influences include Taylor Swift, Noah Kahan and Olivia Rodrigo.

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

I sang at the launch of Ed Sheeran's new 'Sheeran Loopers'. He wasn't there unfortunately but it was amazing to be part of the showcase of such an incredible new product that Ed Sheeran himself uses at every stadium show.

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

I will always try my best to accommodate the timings your event requires and be flexible on the day. If timings change slightly before the event, just let me know. However, overtime and finishing later than agreed will incur a late fee of £100.

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

Of course! This is something I always get asked and I can tailor the Spotify playlists to your taste. I can play them before and in between my sets at no extra charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

I need about 15-30min to set up, depending on the venue. Ideally, for private events such as weddings, I tend to arrive a couple of hours early in order to do a soundcheck and be ready to go when guests arrive. Once I've set up, I can put a playlist on until all your guests arrive!

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

I have put together setlists that tend to work best for each type of event. However, for special events such as weddings and birthday parties, I always endeavour to tailer the setlist to your liking and will send you a setlist to approve. You can request changes and up to 5 song requests should you not find your favourite songs in my repertoire.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, 100%! I provide a PA speaker, a mixer as well as everything I need to perform acoustically. Lighting can be arranged upon discussion.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I have an extensive repertoire but should a song you're looking for not be in there, please don't hesitate to get in touch as I might already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn, I'm happy to learn up to 5 songs free of charge for you. Any additional songs will have a fee of £30 to take into account rehearsal times.
