Customer questions

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

I'm very flexible when it comes to timings, I understand things change last minute and I try my best to accommodate your requirements, so the event can run as smoothly as possible.

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

Yes, I can plug in Spotify and can also make a specially designed playlist for the evening, so in between sets, you have nothing to worry about.

How much time do you need to set up?

I have a small, compact set up. I only need about 20 minutes to set up but I usually like to arrive about 1.5 hours before I arrive.

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

Yes, you can choose what songs you'd like to hear from my set lists. I usually can gage what sort of music to play at what time but if you have a specific selection, you'd like to hear from my repertoire then please let me know.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely. I bring my own PA as well as my guitar.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. ”

What do your clients love most about your performances?

What makes my style unique is that I like to engage and make my performances interactive, so everyone can get involved. I bring with me a box of instruments ( Tambourines, bells, shakers etc ) that people are welcome to join in with. I also let the audience sing a song from my repertoire, should they fancy having a go, a bit like live Karaoke!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed far and wide, all over the UK, Australia and Europe.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

A few of my favourite artists include : - Bon iver, Jeff Buckley, Bruce Springsteen to name a few.

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

Reviews

From customers:

James P, 2 years ago

I booked Taylor for a birthday and he was a pleasure to deal with. Friendly and accommodating with the song lists and flexible when discussing other options. A great singer who manages to keep the night flowing creating a perfect lively atmosphere. He was so good that I was asked where I booked him so he could sing at an upcoming wedding! What better complement can you get!!! Definitely use him again.

Roger D, 2 years ago

“We hired Taylor to give a bit of style and music to our Summer drinks in the garden and he really delivered on both counts. Very organised beforehand he made several calls to check details,timings,play list etc. On the day he turned up right on time and gave a really excellent performance with a great choice of music for the age range. He sang and played beautifully and is a very natural and charming performer. A number of guests remarked on how good he was and we would not hesitate to use him again”.
