Customer questions

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.

How much time do you need to set up?

My setup is usually straight forward and quick. Usually no more than 20 - 30 mins including load-in and levels check.

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

I put a lot of time into crafting my setlists to create the perfect atmosphere for your event. However if you have any requests I'm more than happy to chat about them with you and accommodate where possible.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I supply my own PA system and instrument.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Requests are welcome with a bit of notice. Be aware that as a solo acoustic performer some songs aren't always suitable to my style of performance. A fee may be applicable if significant rehearsal time is required.

What a find! Genuine talent, beautiful voice, really friendly and a true professional. I generally don’t post reviews but feel compelled to do so for Gia as she made our special day even more incredible. She was fantastic on the day - and so many guests commented on how great she was. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an act to add something special on their important occasion. Thanks Gia!

Gia performed at our wedding ceremony and her voice was absolutely stunning! We were very impressed with her voice on the clips we had seen, but in real life she made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. We had soooooo many comments about how wonderful she was and the selection of songs. She made our day, it would not have been the same without her. We can’t wait for her to become famous so we can brag about having her at our wedding!
