“I spent hours upon hours trawling through different sites trying to find exactly what we were looking for for our wedding. I then stumbled across Russell and we immediately fell in love with his voice, to the point where some evenings we’d sit and watch his videos and blast the songs through our speakers! He was spot on from start to finish. We had him for the whole day and he was great! Our guests loved him too and kept telling us how amazing his voice was! Such an amazing voice!”

So much more than a man with a guitar!
