What do your clients love most about your performances?
Recent clients have said: "His enthusiasm, confidence, charm and musical ability made him a very popular act with the crowd."
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Having worked as an actor and musician for a decade, I have performed at dozens of venues across the UK and Europe including: Bristol Old Vic Plymouth Theatre Royal Birmingham Town Hall Lyric Theatre Belfast Edinburgh Festival Theatre Liverpool Everyman Isles of Scilly Food Festival Café du Depart (near Paris, France) Almazen Theatre (Barcelona, Spain)
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
If you haven't watched the film 'Once', I highly recommed you do. It's an irish film featuring Glen Hansard and Marketa Iglova of Swell Season, and it inspired me to pursue a career as a musician. I am inspired by acoustic musicians mostly, such as Damien Rice, Newton Faulkner, Frank Turner, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Neil Young and of course, Bob Dylan.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
As a musician, most recently, entertaining guests on the Isles of Scilly for the Food Festival in 2021. Around 200 people arrived on boats from different islands and listened to me play on a sunny September afternoon. As an actor - performing at Bristol Old Vic stands out, as does Birmingham Town Hall.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
When planning an event like a wedding or concert, there is always the chance timings will move around. I generally try to keep the whole day free for bookings so should be flexible if things move around. If you need to change the day as we get closer to the event we can discuss options.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
If we are using a PA for the set (not just acoustically), I can provide a Spotify playlist curated to your taste and operate it for £15 an hour. If you want acoustic sets that do not use a speaker, but music in between, I can provide a cost of operating and transporting a small PA speaker, or hiring a larger set up.
How much time do you need to set up?
This can depend on if I am playing completely acoustically or with a speaker - usually around less than an hour. Happy to discuss your timings and where I can slot in.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes of course - this is actually very helpful! I often meet with clients to get a sense of who they are and how this can be represented with the music I play.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes - I bring my acoustic guitar with me nearly everywhere! I have a PA speaker available and microphone/microphone stands for louder sets.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I am happy to try out any song your interested in to see if it works well in my style, and often send a video or recording to clients to see if they like the sound of it!
