Guildford
Verified profile

I am based in Guildford and I offer my services in Surrey & surrounding areas. My repertoire includes old fashioned jazz standards such as Cry Me a River, Let there be Love, My Baby Just Cares for me, with a hint of swing That’s Life, Fly me to the moon, a dash of the blues Etta James, B.B. King, add a little bit of Motown and everything else that fits i.e. songs by artists such as Carol King, Adele, James Bay to name a few. And if that’s not enough! You can vary or further enhance any or all of the above by adding a splash of good old fashioned disco, rock, or bit of a sing-along. You choose (talk to me). I sing to quality & extensively researched backing music. I can get your party started, melt into the background or provide something in between. I have many years’ experience & I will tailor my style to suit your needs. Please let me know what you have in mind. I have Public Liability Insurance, PAT tested equipment & I am DRB checked. Since the beginning of 2009 I have been performing solo. I have continual vocal training since 2003 and received a music performance certificate in 2006 from Thames Valley University.

Song list

I just wanna make love to you
At last
I put a spell on you
Mad about the boy
To make you feel my love
If you ever wanna be in love
Smooth
Can't get you out of my head
Chain of fools
Sway
Besame Mucho
That's amore
Crazy
Somewhere over the rainbow
Parla piu piano
O mio babbino caro
Feeling good
Satisfaction
I'm a believer
Twist and shout
Tush
Ring my bell
It might as well rain until September
The Thrill is gone
Que Sera Sera
Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps
Delilah
All shook up
Return to sender
Love letters straight to your heart
Cry me a River
That ole Devil called love
many many more... talk to me
