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.

Just a note formally to thank you for playing at Alison and Richard's wedding on Saturday. The atmosphere you created both before and after the ceremony was simply wonderful. The choice and variety of music were perfect for the occasion, and so many guests commented on how much they had enjoyed it. Thank you again!
