What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients always comment on the quality of sound and the variety of music, both of which i'm very proud of. As a singer as well as pianist, I am just as at home paying instrumental classical music as I am with up-beat pop.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I've performed at many venues around Scotland, from Inverness to the Boarders, as well as to nearby to my hometown of Stafford in the midlands. I've also done 5 years at the Edinburgh fringe in venues all over the centre of the city.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Always a tricky one, but as a singer, David Bowie and Prince. And as a Pianist/Keyboardist, Chopin and Herbie Hancock As a combination of the two, Stevie Wonder and Freddie Mercury.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I've performed in the National A Cappella championships multiple times with my university group.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always do my best to accommodate changes in timings/schedules, as I understand when panning events the unforeseen can happen. As long as you let me know I don't anticipate any issues with slight changes to schedule.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I have a connector for my amplification system for this exact purpose. I don't set my own playlists, but am happy to plug in any device you have your favourite tunes on. It plays right out of a headphone jack, it couldn't be simpler.
How much time do you need to set up?
I can have everything unloaded and set-up in under half an hour, it's very portable being usually only me.
If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?
Of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then that totally satisfies my requirements. I would advise that if i'm singing as well that perhaps a better sound comes from my amp and keyboard set-up, but I do understand that aesthetically a real piano is often preferable for solo piano.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I group my setlist by genre and style to ensure you can do this as easily as possible. I'm also happy to choose what to play to fit the mood, or a combination of the two.
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
Yes, I bring my own set-up as standard, this includes an amplifier, microphone and keyboard.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Included in any booking is the option to request 2 specific songs I don't already know. This works especially well for walking down the aisle for example. I also play my own arrangement of 'Happy Birthday' if that's required.
