What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients say that I have an amazing performance presence. I am able to walk around an event whilst playing so I can really interact with the audience/guests!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed at exclusive events in Morrocco, Italy and Monaco. I have performed orchestral concerts In California, and perform regularly in London in the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Royal Albert Hall.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I love electric violinists such as Lindsey Stirling who also move/dance whilst they are playing. I love intercating with an audience and reading the room to provide a authentic performance. When training as a classical violinist I loved listening to the older generation of violinist who have that Hollywood sounding violin style! Eg. Itzak Perlman.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have appeared on the Graham Norton Show and Jonathon Ross show, and have recorded with Liam Gallagher and the Sugababes. I have also played with Craig David and The script at the Royal Albert Hall.
Do you have different line-up options?
Acoustic violin and piano. Acousitc violin (with mic) and backing track. Electric violin with backing tracks. Roaming electric violin with backing tracks (wireless).
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try to accommodate your time changes to make sure your event is perfect. If your timings change, let me know at your earliest convenience.
How much time do you need to set up?
For an acoustic set I leave 15 minutes for set up For an electric set I leave 45 minutes for a set up and sound check. For a DJ violin set I can plug in and play straight away.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I am happy to take requests for any pieces you would like me to play.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
With an acoustic set yes! With electric, I will require a PA, or can hire one in for your event if preferred.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If there is a song request that I do not know, you can request this at least 2 weeks in advance. If it requested with less than 2 weeks before the event, there is a fee of £30 to require me to have the time to write and learn the piece.
