About Eleanor

Singer (soprano)
Sutton Coldfield
Actress and Singer based in the West Midlands, available to book for weddings, relaxed parties and events.

The life of a performer is a tumultuous one at the best of times. Two years since graduating from Drama School I find myself struggling as an artist whose creativity often depends on other people giving me work. With this in mind, I am looking for more opportunities to perform on my own terms, and use the training I spent so many years on more consistently. Having sung at family weddings, charity events and concerts all of my life, as well as professionally in my Acting career, offering my services as a singer seems to me a logical step. I’m super excited about this new venture and excited to meet you at your event and sing some showtunes! I can offer set-lists from the following genres: Musical Theatre, mellow pop/ country & Wartime. I also work regularly as a drama facilitator and can offer a 'Princess/ Kids Song' setlist complete with some drama games if required! I trained in Acting at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and hold a Grade 8 in Music Theatre Singing from London College of Music. If you're thinking of booking me to entertain your children, I hold an enhanced DBS. I am a registered member of Equity (the actors union).

Customer questions

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

I will always try my best to be flexible.

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

Unfortunately I do not currently offer this service.

How much time do you need to set up?

I have a very small PA system so can be set up within 10 minutes.

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

I am always open to requests from the set list, or specific requests that are not (provided I have time to learn the song!).

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I do. The only thing I would request is a chair.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes! If I know the song I will provide this service for free. However if I do not know it there may be an additional fee for my rehearsal time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My style is different to a lot of singers. Whilst I am not a 'party singer' I believe I can provide a unique mix of upbeat/ happy and nostalgic songs depending on the occasion/ venue.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Church/ Village halls, Theatres, Hospitals... you name it!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Musical theatre stars such as Sierra Boggess, Gina Beck, Laura Osnes. Other artists like Olivia Newton John, Eva Cassidy, Katie Melua, Delta Goodrem.

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

As an actor, I appeared on BBC2 in the 'Brum2020' Olympic games handover film.

Eleanor sang at our wedding and what can I say, she was just perfect! Her voice is so beautiful, she has grace about her and this came across throughout the song. Her voice is very powerful yet delicate where needed, there were tears and goosebumps!

We were so thrilled that Eli was a part of our wedding day. She performed during our church ceremony and sang with such an emotive and beautiful voice creating a really special moment that we will never forget. Our guests all commented on how outstanding and professional she was. She is a stunning artist who we would highly recommend. Lisa & Neil.
