Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. 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?

Yes absolutely! Music in between sets is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends on how many guests you have and how much equipment needs to be set up but usually between 30-60 minutes.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I even have a portable digital piano if the venue doesn't have one.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am more than happy to learn new songs and it's all part of the service -as long as it's far in advance so I can rehearse.

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

The Ritz in Paris and a show at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

Quite simply, Kimm was absolutely superb. A great singer who approached everything professionally with a warm and friendly personality. Kimm made a huge impact on our party and with our guests and I would gladly have her sing for us again. Geoff and Donna Jacobs

What a fun filled nostalgic night! It was one of the most entertaining nights I have ever experienced in my home too! Kimm exceeded all expectations. Her performance was outstanding. Her voice is gentle, consistently crisp with clear tones and very pleasant to listen to. Kimm's music can be fun and yet deep and moody too. She fulfilled every requirement requested. Everyone went home completely satisfied and with laughter in their souls. And that was all because of Kimm. She brought sophistication and an understanding of the guest's needs. In fact, she read the mood - as it was a large dinner party for family members. She is an excellent pianist and was able to play solo tunes during dinner while mixing it with that beautiful voice. I would recommend you book her, that is if you are looking to impress your guests with a class act. Thank you, Kimm. We would certainly book her again!

Kimm read the room wonderfully, and sang beautifully. The venue was I'm sure much smaller than Kimm is used to, but Kimm was very professional and was attentive throughout the afternoon and evening, at what was a casual event. Thank you for providing lovely music for my mum's birthday party Kimm.

We hired Kimm to sing & play for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception a few weeks ago. When I arrived at the venue an hour before the ceremony, she was already completely set-up and prepared. She sung beautifully to welcome guests and nailed the songs we wanted for entering and exiting the ceremony. After this, Kimm seamlessly repositioned for a further set during the drinks reception to entertain our guests while photos were taken. Everyone including the venue staff were so complimentary of Kimm's voice and her ability to play the piano brilliantly on top of this! Her judgement of volume levels were perfect to fill the venue without overpowering conversation. When we spoke on the phone a few weeks before the wedding, she was so warm and friendly, and I could not wait to hear what she had to offer. My expectations were far-exceeded and I cannot recommend her enough!

It is an absolute pleasure to hear Kimm playing the piano and singing live. Kimm's voice is beautiful; she brings a unique quality and versatility to the songs she performs. I love the way Kimm really connects to her audience. Whether the songs are up tempo or ballads, Kimm never fails to deliver them perfectly.
