Libby Akerman's profile picture
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am a singer-songwriter. I began playing guitar and writing my own songs at the age of 12 and I am currently in my final year at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where I study songwriting. I am a trained vocalist in pop, musical theatre, jazz and classical and enjoy performing all of these genres as well as my own songs.

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 us know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I travel light and can set up within 15-30 minutes.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn we are happy to do this for you. I am happy to learn up to 5 songs for your event. After this I charge an extra £20 per song.

Libby played at my Babyshower and was a pleasure. All my guests commented how amazing she was and she has such a lovely voice. She made the occasion really special.

Libby's soulful voice awash with emotion can be playful or angst ridden but always a joy to listen to.

Libby was such a delight to have entertain our guests at a summer party. Absolutely beautiful voice, broad repertoire and very professional. We would definitely use her again, she made our garden party perfect
