Susie was professional and efficient throughout. She was very easy to contact and responded in an easygoing and flexible manner. When we got a bit stuck with song choices she offered suggestions and reassurance which made our lives much easier. She arrived to our event on time, played the songs in a lovely way, and made everyone's experience more enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommended!

Susie was wonderful, such a pleasure to work with, and incredibly talented. She played beautifully, and had to improvise at very short notice, coming up with new parts for the music. I can't speak highly enough of her. Thank you Susie! - team Biffy Clyro.
