I am a professional pianist and vocalist with a wealth of experience in performing and entertaining. I have been playing the piano and singing all my life and have been performing professionally since I was fifteen. I pride myself in having a wide and versatile repertoire of music which enables me to perform in any occasion or setting. I'm highly trained in jazz and classical piano and have adapted my style to cover any genre which is suitable for the event. Whether it is pop, rock, jazz, folk, blues, soul or R&B, I can quickly learn new songs upon request. I love playing and making people smile, that's why my music always provides a great atmosphere. Here is a list of my experience: • Represented Yamaha by performing in London and in Madrid. • The resident and wedding pianist for Branston Golf Club and other venues. • Toured America including New York, New Orleans, Boston and San Francisco, performing solo and with a band. • Performed at the Ricoh Arena twice for the Microlise Awards Ceremony. • Headlined the Burton Jazz Festival and the Melbourne Festival for three years. • Provided entertainment for the Mainframe Awards for three years. • Organised and fronted my own solo gigs throughout the UK, including sell-out shows at the Brewhouse Arts Centre and National Brewery Centre. • Played for brides all over the country as they walk down the isle. • Performed in Disneyland Paris twice.

Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to make sure your event runs as smoothly as possible. Please let me know if there are any time changes as soon as possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

It usually takes me about 30 minutes to set everything up and sound check. This can be longer if the equipment needs carrying a long way.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Of course!! As long as it’s in tune and I’m working order then that will be fine :)

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

Definitely, as long as I am given plenty of notice then that’s fine.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes! I bring all of my own equipment

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! If there is a special song that you would like me to play that isn’t in my song list, then I will learn it. There is a few of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc
