About Effie King

Up and coming singer in London. I’ve performed from a young age playing at a wide variety of events. Guaranteed to wow your guests!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

My name is Effie King and I am a freelance singer based in London. I started my music journey very young doing piano, guitar and singing at school then moving on to studying at Guildhall School of Music. I am classically trained but I studied jazz at Guildhall and love to sing pop and rock in my spare time. I have sung with big bands and small combos and solo. My performing highlights so far have been performing at St.Paul’s Cathedral, Southwark Cathedral, The Notre Dame and The Vatican. Singing is my passion so I put a lot of effort into my performances.

Effie went above and beyond for my sisters 21st birthday. She kept in touch before the event, answered any questions and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend Effie to any who wants to have a good time!

Hired restaurants, bars and pubs The Norte Dame St Pauls Cathedral Basilica Gozo The Vatican Southwark Cathedral Many other churches and cathedrals across the world

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

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

I always try to do my best and be as flexible with timings as possible to ensure things run smoothly. I just ask that you let me know as soon as possible. If it is a date change and I have booked travel I ask that you please reimburse me.

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

Absolutely. This is a very popular request and I offer this for free. However, if you would like DJ service to carry on after my set is over this will cost an extra £30.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up in around 30 minutes to an hour before the performance. As soon as I am set up, I provide a free playlist service to help create an atmosphere and get guests ready for the live performance.

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

I can craft set lists from your preferences and from my knowledge of what goes down well at gigs I have previously done. We can discuss any must haves at any point.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I can play acoustically or I bring my own microphone. I can also provide a small amp and speaker. However, If you want a large amp I am happy to provide this for a extra cost or can work with what you have if you have your own.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I can learn 1 new song for free for your event if given 2 weeks notice. However, more songs or less notice there will be an extra charge of £10 a song as I have to fit in extra rehearsal times etc.
