Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Whether it's a cosy occasion, an elegant ceremony or a rip roaring musical show, I offer high quality, professional entertainment to suit any and all needs.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Royal Opera House, The O2 Arena, The Royal Albert Hall, Charing Cross Theatre, The Pheasantry (Chealsea), Leighton Buzzard Theatre, Watford Palace Theatre, The Grove Theatre, The Actors Church (Covent Garden)

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

My biggest musical influences are Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Billie Holiday, Blossom Dearie, Frank Sinatra, Norah Jones, Natalie Dessay, Fiona Apple, David Bowie, Bobby Darin and Vera Lynn (a rather eclectic mix!)

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I performed at the O2 Arena in the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert - it was magical!

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

If, in the run up to your event, the timings change slightly, just let me know as soon as you can. I will always do my best to be flexible and adaptable so that your event can run as smoothly as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely! If required, I can provide a free music playlist service through my PA system up to 20 minutes before my set begins (to help set the atmousphere) and up to 20 minutes after the end of my set. If you require this service, just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually allocate 45 mins-1 hour before the performance time to set up and do a sound check so that I can ensure everything is running smoothly. As soon as my PA system is set up I can also provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance, if this is desired/appropriate.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set list is always carefully created based on previous performances and learning what songs work best to ensure guests/audience members have the best experience possible. However, I'm more than happy to talk through the set list and find what works best for your specific event - we can work on this together.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! Absolutely. I bring my own professional PA system complete with speakers and a 1950s style microphone.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely! If you require a song that isn't included on my list, just let me know. I can learn up to 2 unique songs for your event. This service will be included in the fee, and won't cost you any extra.

Lissie performed at the first public memorial to remember lives lost to Covid on 23rd June in Milton Keynes at the event being known as : Candleight4covid-Bucks. Not only was her performance the highlight of the event with many members of the public being extremely moved by her renditions of TEARS IN HEAVEN and TIME TO SAY GOODBYE, she was extremely professional and a joy to have performing for us. Highly professional and extremely talented - this lady is the MUST HAVE at any live event. It was a privilege and indeed a joy to have her with us. Debbie - Founder of Covid19familiesuk
