Just a quick note to say thank you for performing so beautifully at our drinks reception. You chose exactly the right songs to be singing. The guests were still talking the next day about how good you were.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I'm friendly, polite and passionate about live performance! I'm a full time musician so performing live is what I do most. I'm organised, professional and flexible, so you can be assured that your booking will definitely give you value for money. I know a huge range of songs - the song you're thinking of...I probably already know it!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've performed up and down the UK and internationally for years, at hundreds of wedding and event venues. From festival-style glamping weddings to fancy inner-city hotels, all the way to beautiful villas in continental Europe, whether it's a solo, duo or trio, i've probably been there!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Since I was young i've grown up around all styles of music, from rock and pop to jazz and soul and everything in between! I've always had an affection for the sound of acoustic guitar and vocals, so you'll notice my repertoire spans a large range of popular music styles. I'd say that one of my favourite singers of all time is Chris Stapleton - what a voice!

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

My original's band 'Stealing Signs' supported Feeder at YNOT Festival in 2016 on the Main Stage - what an amazing gig that was!

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

If your timings change, just let me know ASAP and we'll work out a new plan! I always try and be as flexible as possible to help my clients event's run smoothly.

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

Absolutely! If you book 2 x 50 min sets, i'll provide background music through my PA before and between performances.

How much time do you need to set up?

As i'm a solo artist, I won't need tons of space or time to set up. A good marker is 30 mins to get loaded in, set up and sound checked.

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

My live set lists are crafted from years of experience performing to all ages, and I always adapt my sets to ensure that whoever is infront of me will have a good time! However, if you have a particular favourite style or theme, we can definitely chat beforehand to steer my performances towards that.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I do - i'm entirely self-contained with professional quality gear, capable of working with all venue sizes. If you think there's anything worth mentioning about your event venue or layout, just let me know in advance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! I love the challenge of new songs. And I may already know your favourite songs! It goes without saying that any ceremony bookings will always include the option of bespoke requests. Just let me know in advance so I can work out a quote for you.
