About Guy

Verified profile
Gavin is a superb vocalist covering many different genres of music, his passion for music and singing is reflected in his performances.

My name is Guy and thanks for reading this and I enjoy sharing it with you. My love of music was established really without me actually knowing it around the age of four. We all remember listening to the songs we heard our parents playing and singing along to around the house and out in the car, from here I can vividly remember singing them back to myself sitting in the garden or up in the neighbours tree, yes a varied childhood I had. This just continued throughout my formative years from singing in school plays to practising in the music room with great encouragement from my music teacher, at this point I took up playing the clarinet and this led me to being socially involved with other likeminded music fans and instrument players. I soon parted ways with the clarinet to focus on singing and at the grand old age of 16 I joined a band after singing a song with them after their singer stormed off, the curse of the performer, the ego. From this I honed my skills and set sail on the solo vessel so as to concentrate on learning exactly what I wanted to learn. Fast forward a few years and I gig and perform as often as I can, I have performed at small pubs, clubs, corporate events, a few castles and then my musical nirvana was reached, singing live at the BBC with none other than soul sensation Beverley Knight. An experience I will never forget and appreciate with all my soul. So onwards and upwards with all things musical, and enjoy the journey, thanks

Customer questions

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

As the client, I will always endeavour to suit your requirements within reason, timing problems are a common occurrence so I am used to working around these.

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

Dependant on time and performance I can supply this service, usually after. This can be arranged before the event if notified and is a standard extra cost of £100 in addition to the agreed fee for the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can set up in roughly 45 minutes and again this depends on layout and access.

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

If it’s on the setlist then yes you can choose the songs, always worth asking for various songs as these may be something I can cover and have on the night, obviously this is not a guarantee but I welcome the request.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Everything needed to perform on the day is supplied by myself.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Again. Ask about that special song, I may already have it, if not, and I have two weeks notice, and it is something I can do then that would be fine, subject to my discretion. Please also note if I can perform song request I do not charge any extra for this.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

By experience, I find my flexibility appeals to most and actually being able to sing various genres properly, I pride myself on this.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Various clubs, pubs, hotels, corporate events, garden parties and I have performed live at the BBC.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love various artistes music, but I am not influenced by any of them, every voice is unique and I do not try to sound like anyone else. They are them and I am me.

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

Performing live at the BBC with Beverley Knight.

Booked Guy for a corporate function after a recommendation from a business colleague whilst looking to secure services from various talent agencies. I explained to guy our guest list was very varied in age and would he be able to cover various decades of music. This was confirmed by him as not being a problem and he was right. From the moment he started to the moment he finished he was absolutely incredible. Having booked artistes in the past for various events I can truly say Guy was by some margin the best we have ever booked, highly advise booking him. Voice, out of this world. Thanks Guy.
