What do your clients love most about your performances?
My professional yet approachable nature, both on and off the stage. Clients enjoy the switches that I can accommodate between genres, for example from Jazz standards to operatic favourites in the same set list. Clients also appreciate my ability to source other high quality musicians in a fuss-free manner, in order to arrange great vocal or string ensembles.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I've performed in UK venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, St Paul's Cathedral. Internationally, I've sung in St Mark's Basilica (Venice), and at venues in Norway, Paris, and Hong Kong. I've also sung at everything from beer festivals, to contemporary ballet shows, to studios on backing vocals for electro-folk bands and classical crossover stars.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
As a singer, I admire the agility and ease of Carolyn Sampson, and the emotional sincerity of Nadine Benjamin. When it comes to jazz and classical songs, I love the old numbers by Jerome Kern, and the art songs of Herbert Howells. As a cellist, I have always enjoyed the expression within Jewish-inspired music by Bloch and Bruch.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
There are a few standout moments! - BBC Proms - BBC Radio Live Evensong broadcasts - Launch of the 'Coronation' blend of Royal Salute Whisky
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I'll always try my best to be flexible. Please let me know about any time changes as soon as possible so that I can best cater to the new event.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
This can be provided at a small additional charge, to cover the time spent creating your ideal playlist between sets.
How much time do you need to set up?
Ideally one hour, to set up any sound equipment or other items such as a music stand, and to perfect the balance for the room/outdoor areas.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, I'm very happy to sing whatever suits you and your guests/clients. If you're unsure, I can also provide guidance on suitable music for the given occasion.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
This could depend on how far I am travelling to reach the venue, but where possible: yes.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, of course! I love a challenge and am always pleased to learn new repertoire.
