The best singer and guitarist on this site!

5 stars - James Edward are Highly Recommended booked James Edward for their Wedding in Berkshire August 2019

“We wanted a singer/guitarist for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception and after looking through all the artists on the site, nobody came close to James in terms of voice and his repertoire! On the day he was absolutely incredible and helped to create the exact feel we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and he even learnt a couple of songs we wanted which we were very grateful for! The walking down the aisle song was better than the original and we still listen to it now! We would hire him again ten times over! Great voice and all of our guests commented the same!”

Absolutely awesome voice!! Perfect!

5 stars - James Edward are Highly Recommended booked James Edward for their Wedding in Buckinghamshire August 2019

“James absolutely made our wedding, having him singing me down the aisle made it so special. He sang whilst we had drinks on the lawns and then again for our first dance! His voice is insane! Couldn't of asked for more. I true gentleman. Thanks so much James”

James was brilliant and easy to work with!

5 stars - James Edward are Highly Recommended booked James Edward for their event in Cambridgeshire

“We hired James to help us with a wedding proposal. James has been very easy to work with from the very beginning. He happily accepted our challenge to learn a new (foreign language) song. Upon meeting James on the big day, James was very friendly, polite and courteous. The proposal was a success and we have to thank James for helping us setting up the right mood. ”

Absolutely incredible!!! Cannot recommend enough

5 stars - James Edward are Highly Recommended booked James Edward for their Wedding in Essex

“James was far better than we could of ever imagined. Cannot recommend highly enough! He gave the whole wedding an amazing vibe without being over powering, and was easily contacted in the build up. His voice is absolutely amazing”

He was amazing. Everybody kept telling me how good he was.

5 stars - James Edward are Highly Recommended booked James Edward for their Wedding in London

“He was amazing. Everybody kept telling me how good he was. He learned a new song for us and played lots of classics we love. We had another band in the evening and he coped very well with them sound checking while he was still playing and a surprise saxophone duo when a member of the other band walked over and joined in on one song. He was very professional.”
