Solo Singer based in Newport. Available accompanied by backing tracks, as part of an acoustic duo or a full band set up!

Solo Singer based in South Wales. I have 4 years experience performing as part of a full band, an acoustic duo or a solo singer with backing tracks. I can provide PA and lighting if needed. I have played all events from weddings to birthday parties and pub/club gigs. I have been lucky enough to perform in some esteemed venues such as Mathern place and Hestercombe house and gardens. The biggest venue I have performed at would have to be the O2 academy in Birmingham.
