Customer questions

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

I will always try my best to be as flexible possible, to help ensure your event runs smoothly. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

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

Absolutely, this is a service I offer for free to help keep your event atmosphere going. If you have a specific genre or type of music in mind just let me know and I can tailor the playlists to suit your event.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live music.

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

Depending on the type of event, I have vast experience in knowing what works best to ensure guests have a great time. I have a large repertorie that I usually tailor to suit each event in advance but of course I'm definitely happy to chat through setlists if you would like to get specific!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring all the equipment needed, whether that be a small outdoor event, I have a portable rig which is great for most spaces and also a Full PA system for larger events. I am also happy for you to use my microphone for any speeches or announcements if needed.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If there is a song that isn't included in my setlist, there's still a chance I already know it. However I do take song requests (up to 5 maximum) if booking within 1 month of the event. This is to account for rehearsal time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am often complemented on my song repertoire and the ability to adapt my setlist to all different types of events. My voice is soft in tone and blends in to the atmosphere and ambience without overpowering the occasion.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been fortunate enough to perform at some incredible venues. My own original music & covers work has taken me across the UK and overseas. I toured with Tori Amos across the US performing at 27 venues including The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and The Beacon in New York. I have also played for Champions League at Old Trafford and The Etihad Stadium.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have wide taste in music of all genres however one of my favourite bands is Fleetwood Mac. I love learning new songs so I'm always eager to be introduced to new artists through client requests.

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

The most high profile gigs I have performed would probably be when I toured and opened for Tori Amos. Each night was to over 3000 people sold out across the USA. For 27 dates across 8 weeks.

Katie was amazing. She arrived early, had plenty of time to set up, didn't mind moving to another room at the last minute, she sounded amazing, good choice of songs, really very friendly and a pleasure to have at our party. We would definitely hire her again. Can not recommend enough.

“Reward’s Managing Director, Dave Jones, saw Katie singing in Leeds City Centre and was so impressed that he invited Katie to perform her music and share her vocals at Reward’s summer networking events in 2017. Since those three events Katie has continued to share her amazing talents with us and to date has performed at six Reward Finance Group events for over 400 of our key industry contacts. The feedback from everyone has been excellent. Katie’s professionalism and reliability are key for any person that is booking entertainment, whether that be for a work or private event. And, Katie has that in abundance. However, more importantly it’s Katie’s performance and her love for music which shine through. We would highly recommend Katie with no hesitation at all.”"
