About Samantha

Samantha Jayne Hoare isn’t your run-of-the-mill covers singer. Country & Americana singer Sam brings vibrant flair to every performance.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

26-year-old Samantha Jayne Hoare is a Country & Americana musician based in Leeds. A successful artist in her own right with her original music project Ramona Rose, and with multiple UK tours under her belt, she brings originality, flair and personality to every show, every cover song, every performance. Her rich, soulful vocals and vibrant performance energy are what sets her apart as an artist, delivering industry quality musicianship and professionalism. Holding a BA (Hons) in Popular Music, she brings folky charm to every track she chooses, priding herself on her ability to breathe new life into old classics, particularly with her use of looping effects and vocal processing that evoke the ‘one-woman band’ effect. She is also a prolific songwriter, previously playing live sessions for BBC Radio Oxford and BBC Radio Leeds, appearing on festival line-ups below the likes of KT Tunstall and The Shires, and receiving airplay from radio stations all over the world. As a performer, she is constantly updating her setlist, incorporating songs from the 1960’s to the present day in her own unique style, bringing good vibes with her to every event. She is organised and punctual, always allowing the client to tailor the setlist so that they have a totally bespoke soundtrack to their special day. With a full self-contained PA setup and PAT tests on every piece of equipment, you’re in safe hands, and you won’t need to worry about a thing on your special day.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients love my ability to breathe new life into classic songs, and add originality to more modern tracks. They also love my ability to adapt my performances to any setting - be it chilled acoustic pop for a drinks reception, upbeat bangers for an evening party, or romantic ballads for the bride’s walk down the aisle, I’ve got you covered!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Botanist Leeds/Sheffield, EE Newcastle, Head of Steam Leeds, The Bedford London, Wakefield College, Rebound Social Leeds, Sky Lounge and Double Tree Leeds, Piccolino Wetherby, The Forum Darlington, ExCellar London

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris

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

O2 Academy Sheffield!

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

That’s okay! Weddings and events always come with a certain amount of chance and my job is to make sure everything runs smoothly, so all you need to do is let me know as far as possible in advance.

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

I sadly can’t offer a DJ service, but I can offer an iPos service for between sets! Either you can provide me with a playlist you’d like me to play, or I can make one up for you based on what you like.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually only need 30 minutes to set up, as my set-up is fairly minimal. As soon as my PA is set up, I can provide a playlist to help set the atmosphere for my upcoming set!

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

Of course! I encourage all clients to choose specific requests that they feel would suit their event well, but I will decide the order and how many of those songs I incorporate based on what I’ve learned from previous events about how to set the atmosphere!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I bring everything needed for each performance so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I can! I’m happy to learn up to 5 additional songs depending on what you would like to include. Any additions beyond that point will carry a charge of £5 per song.

From customers:

Sophie D, 3 years ago

An enchanting mix of both the modern and the mellow – the cool and the classic – Samantha’s lively performance was an instant hit with our audience, the grit of her raw tone offset by her sweet and soulful style. This is a performer not to be missed!

Lynn, C, 5 years ago

Outstanding! Great performance, nice and friendly. I would highly recommend. Thanks for a great day!
