Emma was amazing, from initial communication to the day of event she was always available and was very accommodating to requests. It was my husband’s surprise 50th so we had a mix of kids and adults and Emma was amazing at involving the kids and adults alike. She was brilliant and many guests asked for her details. I would very much recommend Emma and if we ever through another party soon I would book her again. Thank you Emma! The MC fam x

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I give everything. I will do my utmost to make sure the event is really special. I'm punctual and professional and enjoy it when you are left feeling happy :o)

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've played to 55,000 at Carfest, similar at BBC Live in Hyde Park! I've also busked on the streets of Manchester for charity, in the middle of the pacific ocean on a ship and all over the world, gigging is my life!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love so many artists and musicians. Hard to choose just one. Some of the artists who influenced my original music are; John Mayer, Taylor Swift and The Corrs.

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

Probably touring with Wet Wet Wet, or supporting Take That in front of 50,000 people. I headlined the BBC Introducing Stage at Hyde Park too, which was on Radio 2, live on TV and a huge festival performance. :o)

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

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

If requested in advance :o)

How much time do you need to set up?

No more than 15/20 minutes :o)

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. However, I'm happy to chat and make sure I find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
