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, was amazing. From oolong him nearly 2 years ago to the performance just over a week ago. I can fault his service, on the day it was more than myself and my wife could ask for. He played our 3 chosen songs, better than we could ever imagine, everyone stated how good he was!

We are so pleased that Steven could be part of our special day. We were delighted that he was able to learn some extra songs for our wedding especially our first dance which made it so personal. Steven set a nice chilled vibe for our wedding and we had many comments from guests saying what a great voice Steven had. Steven was professional and his communication was excellent which meant everything ran smoothly on the day. We would highly recommend Steven for any special occasion or events you want an acoustic singer for!

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.
