Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients often comment on the quality of my singing and the my approachable, friendly demeanour. I have a vast, eclectic repertoire and bring a personal style to well loved songs. I enjoy creating atmosphere for an event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Many! Ritz Club. Ascot. RIBA, London. RAC Club. 2 Temple Place. Milestone, Kensington.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Nina Simone. Shirley Horn.

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

It happens. Just let me know as soon as possible, and I will accommodate you if I can.

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

Yes! Background music between sets is included in my quote. I have some curated Spotify playlists. If you'd like background music after I've finished my performance (perhaps for an hour after) then I can provide this for an additional £50.

How much time do you need to set up?

I need 1 hour to set up if I am providing the piano/keyboard and full PA. 30 minutes if there is a piano at the venue or for smaller events.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

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

Certainly. A couple of weeks advance notice is helpful.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes I bring all my own equipment. In addition to my main piano/keyboard, I have a rather snazzy electric blue battery powered Italian piano/keyboard - handy for garden parties and outdoor wedding ceremonies.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, I will happily learn one or two special songs. Just try to give 2 weeks notice before the event takes place if you can, particularly if the song is French, Portuguese or German!

Wedding Ceremony
This includes music before the service begins, music during the signing of the register, and music as guests leave. Clients often like solo piano prior to the service - classical repertoire is popular for setting the tone, a special song for the signing of the register, and an uplifting song to play the guests out of the ceremony,

“Thank you so much for your wonderful contribution to our Wednesday lates programme. We had such wonderful feedback from our visitors, and you provided the perfect accompaniment to our exhibition.” -Hannah Jordan, Head of Programme, Two Temple Place - London.

Rebecca T, 2 years ago

We booked Elizabeth to sing Feel Good for my bridal entrance and she was absolutely incredible! Her singing is amazing and she went above board to get the timings perfectly synched. We were really lucky to her her and would highly recommend her to anyone.
