About

My love for the piano began aged 10 years old. Classically trained, I started out playing the likes of 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, Alicia 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 and a vocal coach, whilst playing regularly in the music venues, bars and restaurants in and around the city.

I also found a love for writing songs, and that together with my performance 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've now put roots down in Britain's capital, where I have a residency at one of London's most prestigious music venues, The Piano Works (since 2016).

I have a car! Making travelling to events and bookings 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.

"A great range of songs available, absolutely amazing singing voice/pianist. Would highly recommend for any event"
