On this page you can read feedback from people who have seen me perform live:

“I was honoured you agreed to perform acoustically at my house party because I knew how in demand you are with your band and other musical commitments. Thank you for being so professional, polite,on time, bringing lights and having background music playing when you weren’t performing. You were more organised than me! Honestly everyone was buzzing about your performance the next day. You got us all up and set a lovely vibe for the evening. Thank you Sonnetsmith x”

“You were recommended by a friend of mine who had seen your band Sonic Boom. I couldn’t believe how versatile your set was, how professional you were which made the booking process so much easier and on the night you not only performed the songs so so well you entertained the whole crowd. You had everyone in the palm of your hand. By the end of the night we wanted more and more! Thank you for making our corporate event so much more memorable.”

“Went to see Sonnetsmith after hearing really good things about his show and have to say he didn’t disappoint. Super talented guitarist with a voice to match – excellent mix of songs that really got the crowd going. His percussionist Kev added some great energy to the show. Would definitely recommend Sonnetsmith if you want to book an act that gets everyone up dancing and singing all night long.”
