My name is Steven and I’m singer and guitarist based in Coventry, UK. I’ve always loved music and was bought up listening to albums that my Dad played in the lounge. Playing music and sharing it with people is something I really love do to. For a number of years (even since my teenage rock band days!) I have been playing at weddings, functions, bars and restaurants all around the UK. For me, I really love playing covers and changing how the original sounds or giving the song a new twist. Being able to perform songs that connect with people is a beautiful thing. Weddings and significant occasions create such amazing memories and for me to be part of these events is very special. If you are getting married, organising a function, holding a party or would like some live acoustic music at an event you are arranging drop me or email or give me a call.

Steven is a great singer and was well perceived by our guest's, The only thing i would say is that the music was very mellow and could've been more upbeat

Very professional approach from the initial contact all the way through to performance. Steven is truly a professional and hugely talented performance really engaging. We left the playlist to Steven and didn’t regret it he read the mood of the room amazingly well. A reliable highly creative artist adding his own style and flair to well known songs but way more than just another cover artist.

The performance was immaculate, perfectly in keeping with our wedding atmosphere. You were able to adapt to timings changes effortlessly and we’re aware that you performed for longer than we’d agreed through a desire to make our day special. Outstandingly professional and talented. It can be daunting searching the internet for an artist. You are exactly the kind of person we hoped we’d find. End-to-end service was top drawer, I would trust you with any occasion.
