Newport

Verified profile
Professional solo singer based in Cardiff. Performing songs from the 60s to present day using backing tracks. PA, Lighting and PLinsurance.

Solo Singer based in South Wales. I have 4 years experience performing as part of a full band, an acoustic duo and a solo singer using backing tracks. I can provide PA and lighting if needed and have public liability insurance. 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, The Celtic Manor and Hestercombe house and gardens. The biggest venue I have performed at would have to be the O2 academy in Birmingham. My aim with every event I perform at is to make sure I add something to someone’s special day, getting people up on their feet dancing and singing along. As long as everyone is enjoying their night I am happy.
