What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always do my best to be flexible where possible, so if timings change in the run-up to the event please just let me know as soon as you can. If you need me to stay on longer, I charge £50 per half hour but can provide up to two extra 45 minute sets to suit.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. In fact, backing music between sets is included in the price of your package. I also offer an additional disco package with DJ booth and lighting - please see the add-on section of my encore profile.
How much time do you need to set up?
For a standard show, I will need 15-20 minutes to set up my PA system. To allow for warming up and dressing, I usually aim to arrive 45 minutes - 1 hour before start time unless otherwise discussed. For the disco add-on, I will need an extra half hour. Once the system is set up, I can play backing music to set the tone for the evening.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
My set list is not set in stone, and I use my wealth of experience to decide what will best suit the audience. However, I am happy to talk through your requests to find out what works best to make your event a success.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I bring a full PA system for standard shows, and DJ booth and lighting for the disco add-on.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't already in my set list, there's still a chance I already have it or at least know it. If not, I am happy to learn a song if possible, and if I can find a suitable backing track, at a price of £10 per song to allow for rehearsal and download costs. If I can't do that, I should be able to play the original for you at no extra cost.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
People always say that they love my energy. I love to perform, it's my full-time occupation, and I always give 100% when on stage. If I'm singing a ballad, I might get lost in the emotion of the moment and pour my heart out through my song. When I'm singing a powerful, up-tempo number I might get dance so enthusiastically that I almost topple over!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I've performed at hundreds of venues in my ten plus years of singing professionally, both as a solo artist and with several function bands. I love the energy of singing with a band, and interacting with the musicians to create great new things, but I also love my solo performances as it gives me a chance to give a really unique and exciting set.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
My first musical influences of course came from my parents, so I'm a huge Sam Cooke fan and I love all the old classic Motown tracks that my mum used to play. I am a huge Mariah Carey fan and she is the reason I started singing, but I also have a soft spot for the classic divas like Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I sang alongside my father Keni Stevens at CampSoul Festival a few years ago, where we performed a few tracks from his latest album 'Out of The Blue' on which we had worked together on several songs. I loved singing original material, it was a really great feeling to sing to my dad's fans and I can't wait to start performing my own original material soon!
