Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Jade Thornton is a 23 year old busker / singer-songwriter based in South London. She has been singing since she can remember and started to learn guitar at the age of 14, after convincing her parents to get lessons. Song-writing was an obstacle for her to overcome, but went on to place top 10 in the country in the ‘Song Academy’s Young Songwriter’ competition with her song ‘Only Me’ in 2017 and took part in the 2017 Mayor of London’s ‘Busk in London’ competition. After completing her academic years, gaining qualifications in music performance and music technology, and trying various jobs, she decided to take the plunge and do music full time. In 2021, Jade was lucky enough to get two cover tracks on ITVs 'Love Island', amassing over 50,000 streams. She also released her debut studio EP titled ‘Pages’, which consists of 5 original songs and can be found on all major streaming platforms. Now you can find Jade frequently performing on the Souhtbank under the famous London Eye, and has even taken her music to Amsterdam, Norway and as of October 2022; South Korea, where she placed in the top 60 for the 1st Buskers World Cup!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The variety of my setlist always goes down a storm!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

My first paid gig was at Royal Sandhurst Academy; and the variation has been wide ever since. I have played at various pubs, beautiful wedding venues and even above the Arts Theatre in London and the Theatre Cafe.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I’d be lying if I said Ed Sheeran didn’t influence my career! Many others have influenced along the way, including Tory Kelly, Dodie, Maisie Peters and more generally; the genre of musical theatre.

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

I would say either Royal Sandhurst or the Theatre Cafe. I’ve also been interviewed on BBC Radio London and had 2 tracks featured on Love Island 2021.

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

That is no problem at all. All I ask is that you try and give me notice, but I am usually quite flexible!

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

I can provide an instrumental playlist through my amp between sets!

How much time do you need to set up?

Around 20 minutes is required to set up; my setup is very contained.

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

No problem at all.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Everything required is provided by me!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I can within reason! (please don’t request any slipknot!)

Jade sang throughout the day for my brothers wedding, and she was absolutely incredible all throughout the 3 year planning stages (thank you covid) and blew everyone away on the day. I’m still hearing from all the guests how much they loved her voice and how incredibly talented she is!! In addition to her super impressive set list, she learned 2 new songs as a special request from the couple. I couldn’t have asked for a more helpful, sweet, and talented musician to make the wedding really special, and I would highly recommend her to anyone, for any occasion. I found Jade as I was running for a train in London, and I’m *so* thankful I turned around to grab her Instagram. She’s an absolute pro 💛

Jade was absolutely brilliant performing at our wedding. Her amazing voice was perfect for our ceremony and made the bride's entrance even more special, and her wide-ranging repertoire was fantastic background music during the drinks reception. Had so many comments from guests saying how great she was and wanting to know how to find her in future. Couldn't be more happy that Jade added that something special to our big day!
