What do your clients love most about your performances?
My clients love the relaxed atmosphere of my acoustic sets and the variety of my song choices. In my jazz sets, they appreciate the authentic jazz tone that comes from countless hours spent listening to, absorbing and practising along to my favourite jazz singers, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone :D
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Countless wedding venues in the UK and abroad, most of the original music venues in London, theatres such as The Mercury, and countless festival stages.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Ella Fitzgerald, Chaka Kahn, Norah Jones, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Lianne La Havas, Ani Di Franco
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have performed at festivals warming up the stage for artists such as Paloma Faith, The Noisettes, Florence and the Machine, The Magic Numbers and Flogging Molly.
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?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I offer iPod playlists in between acoustic and backing track sets free of charge as standard. However, if you're looking for something a bit more spectacular, I do also perform professionally as a DJ. This includes a DJ booth and party lighting. I charge £875 a night for my DJ party sets.
How much time do you need to set up?
It usually takes around 30-45 minutes to load in, get set up and soundcheck for a ceremony or drinks reception. I like to be all set up and ready around 30 minutes before the first set. I provide a free playlist service before the first set to help create a good vibe before my live performance. It takes around 2.5 hours to set up for a full day with DJ.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
My songlist over the years has got pretty big so I don't rehearse all of the songs on the list every week. If there are songs that you would love to hear please let me know a couple of weeks in advance so that I can rehearse them and make sure that they are well polished for your day. Equally, if there are songs that you would rather not hear, let me know.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! I bring a full PA system. All I need is easy access to plug sockets.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance that I already know it. If there's a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £40 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
