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.

Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible. If timings change just let me know.

This would not be a problem at all. If you would like me to provide a DJ service after our final set I would be happy to do this for an additional fee.

I usually set up 1-2 hours before I am due to play.

I just wanted to say how amazing Leighton and his friend were, I booked him for my daughters 18th birthday party, lots of different ages celebrating together and all the guests thoroughly enjoyed his singing/performance. I would not book anyone else again he really did contribute to an amazing evening - thank you

We can't recommend Kingson enough! We booked the band for my husband's birthday and from start to finish they were brilliant. Communication before hand was excellent, playlist was sent in advance to ensure we were happy, set up was easy and the music was amazing! So much positive feedback from guests - we can't thank the guys enough for making the night a memorable one 😊
