Music for Weddings and Corporate Events
Louise is no stranger to the venues around Essex and her singing also takes her further afield to Kent, Hertfordshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex as well as other areas of England, Scotland and Wales. She performs at private parties and corporate events, but weddings form the bulk of her work. As as a wedding singer she can cover every part of your special day. Louise can sing for your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception. Some couples like to have solo piano for the ceremony followed by piano and vocals or another line-up for the drinks reception. For these occasions her accompanist is available as a solo pianist and can play anything from Bach, Debussy and Einaudi to Abba, Billy Joel and Oasis. Please visit the wedding page for more information.
Louise has definitely made her mark as a highly respected jazz singer and one who is capable of crossing the borders of jazz into other fields such as pop and rock. Getting to the very essence of a song and conveying this to her audience is where Louise excels. Her interpretations of jazz standards are original, but she still manages to retain the true flavour of the original song. This is something she seems to be able to apply to any song whether it’s a jazz standard, a pop song or a rock ballad. Louise has been influenced by many singers of the past such as Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Vera Lynn and Dusty Springfield. However, she doesn’t just copy a singer – she uses that influence to develop her own unique and inimitable style. Please see the Repertoire Page.
Her background has consisted of classical vocal lessons from the age of 9. She has had a thorough training in Musical Theatre and Acting, receiving a foundation certificate from The Oxford School of Drama and a BA Hons degree in Acting from The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA). Louise has performed in several theatre shows and touring productions as well as performing as a singer at many corporate events, weddings and private parties.
A recent colaboration with jazz pianist Eugene Portman has resulted in one of the most sought after live music acts in the South East. Louise can offer anything from a duo with just piano and vocals right through to a five piece jazz band which would include piano, bass, drums, sax and vocals. The most popular line-up is a trio consisting of piano, bass and vocals, but you can have any line-up you like. A band can be provided to match your budget and available space at the venue. Please see the Band Page for more information.
