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 me know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and so I actually offer this service for free. Being a contemporary classical artist, the music I offer before hand and during sets is of this genre, which really helps create and maintain a lovely atmosphere.
How much time do you need to set up?
Set up usually takes an hour including time for sound check and I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere ready for the live performance.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Absolutely! I'll work with you to ensure we create the perfect performance for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. I have my own PA system and professionally produced backing tracks. Instrumentalists can be hired in for an additional fee.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in the song list on my profile, there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I would be more than happy to learn it and sing it for you, just let me know the song and the version that you prefer.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
"powerful voice" "captivating performance" "inspirational stories" "incredibly impressive range" "wonderful choice of songs" "real wow factor"
