Customer questions

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. Any drastic changes however would have to be discussed as I often have more than 1 booking a day.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like the option to plug in a playlist via my PA after I have finished playing and until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.”

How much time do you need to set up?

It usually takes me 30 minutes to set up. If you require my louder PA system, this would take 60 minutes.

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

I always encourage people to let me know which songs that they definitely don't want to hear. I play them in a way that is different to the original and that leaves me to do what I am best at, read the room, and deliver songs that people will enjoy listening to.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring everything I need, I just require access to a plug socket! If outdoors, then I have a battery powered system also for small events.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I charge £30 for any new song you require me to learn.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am told time and time again from clients, that they love my versions of the songs. I don't play sad, depressing songs unless specifically requested, and any slower songs, I then try to make a bit more upbeat to fit the atmosphere. I love singing, and the clients always give really lovely compliments about my voice.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Too many to count! Wembley Stadium, Henley Regatta, Sandown Racecourse, 4 seasons Hotel, The Dorchester Hotel, Isle of Wight Festival, Rewind Festival, Writtle University, Surrey University, Brunel University, Bucks New Uni...

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I am influenced by Legendary Singers, Musicals, Country, Rock, Pop, Folk, Indie, and I try to bring all of that into my performances. A look at my setlist will give you a better idea but in a nutshell: Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Bryan Adams, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Tina Turner, Fleetwood Mac, The Greatest Showman, Shawn Mendes(!)

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

Most definitely the unsigned stage at The Isle of Wight Festival.

Steph’s voice is incredible... she played at our wedding in October 2017 and had all of our guests captivated by her set. We are so grateful! All the way along Steph was easy to communicate with and really understood what we wanted. She is amazing, her voice is beautiful and she and comes highly recommended.
