Hailing from the South of England, Carl Fryer is nothing like your standard modern-day singer-songwriter. He is widely known in his area for delivering a unique, powerful and passionate “one-man-band” inspired performance every time with his eclectic repertoire of over 400 tracks, and since 2012 has brought this one-of-a-kind showmanship to a large variety of pubs, clubs, weddings and festivals all over the UK, and additionally has two worldwide tours as a pub musician for Royal Caribbean International under his belt. While also able to take requests, Carl sometimes manages to learn some during a set break! This unique ability makes him a standout soloist in his region and he continues to impress new spectators at every gig he plays.

With his reliable attitude, friendly persona and his own equipment already supplied, it goes without saying that Carl is enthusiastically passionate about his craft, and is always on the lookout to bring atmosphere to new venues and make everybody’s special occasions memorable with his music.

A wonderful talent with such a natural grasp of what it means to entertain though music. We could not come up with a song he didn't know (though we tried!) and had us all singing along with him due to his persona. A lovely guy on and off the stage, though with is guitar in hand he truly shined. Highly recommend!



  • How long do you play for?

    Anywhere from 30 minutes - 3 hours.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    I have 2 speakers, a PA, speaker and all recommended mic equipment.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


  • How much space do you require?

    Enough to move about and feel the positive vibes of the music!

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    Absolutely! I am fortunate to be able to learn a song (in most cases) during a 15 minute break, as I grew up around the beauty of music in my house every day and can sink the information in incredibly easily.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    For a 3 hour gig, two 15 minute breaks, and for a 2 hour gig, one 15 minute break.
