Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a girl and a guitar. She records her own unique backing drums, percussion and vocals for each song to create a truly unique version of some incredibly well known songs. Her experience in previous function bands makes her the perfect entertainer who knows exactly what crowds want to hear, but her acoustic career allows her to tailor the music to suit a quieter event if desired and she can happily create a more chilled vibe if more of a background music feel is what you are after. Versatile, talented and very funny on the mic too, she engages with the crowd and is a fantastic entertainer for any event! !

Thank you Sue for a wonderful performance at our company event.
She was always quick to respond, the songs she played matched the atmosphere perfectly and in the end our guests didn't want her to leave. My only regret that I didn't book her for a longer time! Thank you for an amazing night Sue, you made it even more special! ❤️

Sue was absolutely brilliant. She arrived well ahead of schedule to set up, provided a set list beforehand and completely read the evening to know when to start being a little more upbeat. All the guests raved about her and will definitely be booking her again for any event we may have.
Thanks so much Sue!

We hired Sue for our festival themed hen night. We were not disappointed!!! The evening was fab, lots of laughter and a few tears! The whole hen party literally sang and danced the whole night away.
Sue had clearly put lots of thought into her play list, and incorporated lots of hen/wedding related songs - Ed Sheeran’s Shape of Me will definitely be played at the wedding now!!!!
Sue’s banter through out the evening with the hen and the other guests was spot on.
Thank you Sue for making our hen night! We definitely would not hesitate in booking you again
