From Weddings to Funerals to International Shows, a Career Path …


You are most welcome to my site.

This has been put together in response to a growing number of requests from friends and acquaintances to showcase the less well-known side of my musical journey away from the spotlights of the large stage. Singing at funerals and special events and performing as a wedding singer on your special day has been something I’ve done from the start. In this website I will pull together some of the musical possibilities for your wedding, show or a funeral. I hope you find it helpful. Enjoy reading and hope to see you soon!
