I’ve been a choral singer for most of my life, and at some point I took up wedding singing. In fact, my work publicising concerts and running choral festivals is where my interest in marketing and event management originally came about. It’s all very intertwined.
In my singing career, I’ve since sung as part of a classical trio, a jazz trio, solo/duo/trio with playback, a soloist with a big band and every combination in between.
As a trio, we did classical, Andrews Sisters, Puppini Sisters, Motown and more. Solo, I’ve got a repertoire that covers all sorts of random styles, and I can sing anything from tenor to soprano — mainly I prefer vocals in soprano, though.
My voice sounds best singing works by Kylie Minogue, Sia, ABBA, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Dido, Tori Amos, George Michael, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Adele, Shakira, Rita Ora, Dua Lipa, Anne-Marie, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Sting, Eva Cassidy, Donna Summers, and Diana Ross.
After moving to the UK I didn’t have the connections to sing as part of a trio anymore, and I focused on marketing work instead. But you’ll still find me making a nuisance of myself in karaoke bars on occasion, and I’m open to singing with any semi-professional or professional ensemble — especially for weddings and events.
(Also, despite doing this a long time, these are the only half-decent recordings I have — sorry!)
Cocktail & Dinner Music
I like to keep things light while people are having cocktails or eating their meals.
After Dinner Music
When things start to warm up I move into a mid-tempo set, which is still not too loud.
Dancing & Party Music
Later in the evening, we can get stuck into some real dance music, rock & roll and party anthems to sing along to.
Below is a list of repertoire that is concert-ready, including already owning the playbacks. Obviously, though, that’s not all I have up my sleeve. 🙂
