What do your clients love most about your performances?
I am able to provide music on classical instruments which you wouldn't expect to hear! People tend to love the LED electric violin especially as it brings a new energy to the performances.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Abbey Road Studios, Royal Albert Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool International Music Festival, Carnival Conquest Cruise Ship, Liverpool Echo Arena, the list goes on!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I love artists who fuse classical and popular music. I am a classically trained musician but have a passion for modern, pop, commercial styles. Therefore, artists such as Clean Bandit, Bond, Escala, David Garrett, Vanessa May, Lindsay Sterling really inspire me!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I lead an orchestra in Abbey Road Studio 1 conducted by Nile Rodgers, recording a symphonic version of David Bowie's hit 'Let's Dance' for 80's Symphonic project. It was amazing!
Do you have different line-up options?
Yes I am available to be booked as a solo violinist, on acoustic or electric violin. I am also available to be booked as part of a string group of any size.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I am happy to be flexible in order to help your event runs as smoothly as possible. We can discuss changes in the run up to the event.
How much time do you need to set up?
Not long - around half an hour! Depending on the line up. Electric with backing tracks will take longer as we will have to get the levels right. Acoustic performances don't take long at all.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes you can choose the exact pieces you would like for your event so that you make sure it provides the perfect atmosphere for your special day. You can also request songs that aren't on the set list beforehand for a small extra price.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes we provide everything we need.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes we can! There is a fee of £20 for us to learn a new song which isn't already on our set list. We love getting new request and adding all of our clients favourites to our repertoire!
