My love for the piano began aged 10 years old. Classically trained, I started out playing Bach and Beethoven. I became enamoured with pop music in my early teens, which has lead to a long-standing love affair with the likes of Elton John, Alicia Keys and Ben Folds.
Graduating with a BA 1st class (hons) degree and a Masters degree from Leeds College of Music, I began my professional music career as a wedding singer, songwriter and vocal coach, whilst playing regularly in the music venues, bars and restaurants in and around the city of Leeds and beyond.
My love for writing songs together with my live performances has taken me all around the world, opening for the likes of Billy Ocean, The Proclaimers, Nerina Pallot and The Vaccines. Having spent much of my early twenties in America and Scandinavia writing, recording and performing, I put roots down in London for 5 years, where I had a residency at one of London's most prestigious music venues, The Piano Works, alongside playing in other venues in the city, and other events up and down the country. At the beginning of the pandemic, when all the music venues closed, I made the decision to move back up to Yorkshire. Now in 2023, I live in my VW Crafter van with my two rescue dogs Zala and Simba! I enjoy adventuring between events, and love when I am booked in a new area with new countryside to explore.
Because I am in my van full time, travelling to venues and events is very easy even if they are long distance. I also own all equipment needed for any performance (PA system / desk / speakers, Nord electric piano and Shure SM58 microphone) which are all PAT tested, and I have insurance through the Musicians Union.
On top of being a great performer and perfect addition to your event, I am very professional, reliable and polite when interacting with clients, guests and staff. Whether it be providing background music during your wedding breakfast, singalong entertainment for your birthday party, or the feature performance for your corporate event, I will happily discuss with you what sort of repertoire you would like. With a bank of over 600 songs, I really can cater for any musical taste, with the unique addition of taking and playing requests during your event, if wanted.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your needs and requirements for your event!
"A great range of songs available, absolutely amazing singing voice/pianist. Would highly recommend for any event"
