I was looking for a musician for a long time before we found someone that we were really happy with. I have no shadows of doubt that I would book Owen again & again. What a performance, he turned up and was so polite, played his heart out and absolutely smashed the cover we requested for our first dance which was probably very different from his usual requests but he took it in his stride. He was one of many highlights for our wedding day and I can’t thank him enough. His set list was great and all the guests enjoyed his music! Whenever i spoke to him he was always quick to respond and help where necessary. So again Owen thank you so much!

Owen was everything we wanted for our party. Great voice and his song list had everyone singing along. Lots of our guests commented on how good he was. He was also very professional to deal with, he responded to all my queries and was punctual on the day. Would happily recommend Owen.

I recently booked Owen at very short notice to play at our home for my Husbands 50th Birthday. We arranged it all by email as it was a surprise for my Husband, Owen was very obliging, on time and professional, he was the 'icing on the cake' and all our guests commented on his performance. Thank you Owen!

I recently hired Owen for a food festival I organised in London. Owen was on time, very presentable, easy to deal with and very reasonably priced. Everyone seemed to enjoy his quite unique, slightly jazzy style of performing. I would definitely hire him again.
