Wow! Carley performed at our wedding this weekend, and was absolutely incredible! Carley accepted the gig at very short notice and even learnt our first dance and father daughter dance, singing both beautifully! Carley would check in pre event to keep us posted and was all set up for our guests to walk in to.
Carley has such a beautiful voice and was able to perform a lovely intimate song for our first dance, as well as getting the party going! There has been so many compliments on Carley’s voice!
Thank you so much Carley for making our day, we can’t recommend Carley highly enough!!

Carley is an incredibly talented musician. Its just herself and a guitar but she can get a room dancing with the passion she puts into her music covers. I have seen her perform for three years across various establishments and at many events. Pubs, Restaurants, Parties, Weddings, Bars and Hotels and she amazes me everytime. Do not hesitate to book her!!

Who are your previous clients?

Previous clients have also hired me for birthday parties and anniversaries.
How long do you play for?
Usually 2 hours but I have enough material for 4 hours.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
I have my own PA system. This is a three tier speaker, A Mixer, Cables for instruments, microphone and stand. I do not have lighting equipment.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
I have Public Liability Insurance (5m) and PAT testing.
How much space do you require?
Not much - I can fit in corners if there isn't much room. It is only my guitar and I, the speaker is large but fits in places quite easily.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
If you email me and ask me I can make it my mission to learn it for the event yes.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
It depends on the length of time playing for. If its two hours I require a 15 minute break. If it is 3 hours 2x 15 minutes as my voice does get very tired and singing for that long can cause damage without a break.
