About Jonathan

Hi, I'm a highly experienced bass singer in classical, choral, musicals and pop music. Excellent sight-reading ability. Based in London.
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile

I was a Music Scholar at Eton College, singing and playing piano, violin and clarinet. I was then awarded a Choral Scholarship to King's College, Cambridge where I sang services, performed in concerts and recordings and travelled the world on tour for three years. Presently I sing in two choirs, The Cantus Ensemble (chamber choir) and London Contemporary Voices (London's leading alternative choir). My first solo EP, 'Sunrise' was released in 2016 on Banoffeesound label. My first choral composition was performed at Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2018 by LCV Choir.

Customer questions

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

Will always try to be as flexible as possible and do everything to help ensure that the event runs as smoothly as possible. Just let me know.

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

No, sorry

How much time do you need to set up?

Depends on the specific gig but a brief soundcheck should be fine.

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

Of course.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes but if you have a piano then we can use that for our set.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Great - turned up and did a professional job and stayed to socialise afterwards. Excellent, would book again.

I have known Jonathan for over three years and frequently have used him as a professional singer. He has a lovely bass voice with a wide range. He is extremely musical and a flawless sight reader. He was a regular professional singer at St Gabriel’s, Pimlico for two years and was always extremely punctual and well organised.

From other musicians:

13th February 2019

Jonathan depped for me at my church choir, and I have subsequently sung with him in that same group; he is punctual, has a handsome baritone sound, and works with a great professional attitude. I'd book him again in a second.

11th February 2019

I booked Jonathan when needing a last minute soloist for Purcell's 'Dido & Aeneas'. Not only was Jonathan note-perfect in spite of the short lead time, but he was the consummate professional in terms of rehearsal, too, taking musical direction very well. Clearly a superb musician with top reading skills and a rich, warm second bass sound, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jonathan to other directors.
