About

I have worked as a singer since the age of 12, when I my singing teacher gave me the opportunuty to perform as a classical soloist at wedding ceremonies every weekend. It didn’t take me long to branch out into other styles too.

Since then, I have had the pleasure of singing at a wide range of occasions from small private parties to big formal dinners and many, many weddings!

Q&As

Meeting clients and offering a bespoke service, tailored to each individual's requirements.

I enjoy the variety that comes with being a freelance professional musician. No two venues, students or performances are ever the same. This motivates me to continue to develop my skills (20+ years after I completed my music degree) to offer the best possible experience to all clients.

I will listen to what it is that YOU need and build the services I offer to fit your tastes and requirements.

Yes. I can provide lessons in singing and music theory over Zoom, Skype or even FaceTime. Please contact me to discuss how this might work for you.

Polly and all members of each of the bands she works with are fully vaccinated against Covid19 and take regular lateral flow tests.

We wear masks in line with current guidance until our performance begins. We provide our own hand sanitiser and can perform from behind a clear, perspex screen if requested by the client at the time of booking.

Please ring or message me for information about remote singing and music theory lessons.
