Jacqueline I, 1 year ago

Ruth-Ellen is a fantastic performer with a stunning voice. She performed at our recent Think Smart event and we would highly recommend her as an artist. She is professional, punctual and was such a pleasure to work with. We would love to work with Ruth-Ellen again and would recommend other organisations to book her.

Working with Ruth-Ellen was great experience. She performed at our headline Show in August of 2018. We had rehearsals for Artists which she always attended on time as well as always coming to the rehearsals prepared. She always presented herself in a professional manner and bonded well with Band. On the night she was on time for soundcheck and when it came to performing did so with confidence and was able to move the crowd with her Guitarist. We’ve worked with Ruth Ellen, as a band and individually on numerous occasions and it’s always been great fun and of course productive. Nehemiah Ibe
