Customer questions

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

That is absolutely fine, just let me know in the run up to the event and everything will run smoothly.

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

Absolutely. I will just need to know in advance of the gig so that I have the right equipment. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can set up in under 30 minutes. I usually aim to arrive roughly an hour before my set, giving myself plenty of time to meet and greet and get set up and ready.

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

I'm happy to take requests, including songs you might not see on my list. I'm always looking to expand my repertoire. If you let me know in advance of the gig what songs you would especially like to hear I'll make sure to play them. Likewise, if there's anything you definitely do not want, then please let me know

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I bring all my own equipment, I just need access to a mains socket and we're good to go!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, I can learn song requests before the gig no problem!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The biggest compliments are usually about my singing voice, I try and put a lot of good soul and feeling into my singing and it tends to get a really good response.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've performed at countless beautiful wedding venues up and down the country. I've also performed original music at many 1000+ capacity venues in cities in the UK and Europe

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Marvin Gaye, Paolo Nutini, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and many more

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

I was a support act for Morcheeba at the Kentish Town Forum

Ste, there are no words to thank you enough! You are an incredible singer and made our wedding day the incredible day it was! Your voice in the church was literally insane!! I loved hearing you sing during the reception drinks and I really wanted the photos to be done so I could come and hear you more!! Our first dance couldn’t have been more perfect, excuse the pun, and my dad said that our dance together was one of the best moments in his life.

Iv just come round from last night and can't tell you how amazing you were - every single bit honestly I couldn't have dreamt of anything better. EVERYONE is talking about you to me, you honestly made our day. I'll get some videos and send them over you clearly don't need to advertise as word of mouth is enough from everyone whose enjoyed it!
