When I was at school I wanted to be an author! So becoming a wedding saxophone player and singer was not something I thought I would ever achieve. Some people are born with talent, while others work hard and discover theirs. The latter describes me. I started playing the saxophone at the age of 11 when my Dad encouraged me to learn an instrument. From there my interest in music began to grow. I regularly performed as part of the school orchestra and formed a 4 piece girl-band called ‘Obsession’ at the age of 13, performing in our school music shows and at local events. The buzz I felt when performing was addictive and I knew it was something I wanted to continue to pursue.
I took my saxophone studies seriously and went on to pass my Grade 8 Jazz Saxophone exam with a distinction from Trinity Guildhall. I continued my studies in Musical Theatre at college and earned a distinction in my Grade 8 singing exam from London College of Music. Since these early days I’ve continued to study music and have a teaching diploma in Popular Music Vocals.
I always knew that I was destined to be on stage, and started my entertainment career at the age of 18. Over the years I have worked with several bands and show teams as lead vocalist in the UK and abroad. As a member of Vocal Works Gospel Choir, I’ve supported celebrity acts including Susan Boyle and Take That. I also played lead vocalist in the ‘Bobby Socks and Blue Jeans’ touring theatre show, the ‘No.1 Christmas Show’ and a the sell out ‘Rock n Roll back the year’ music show hosted by former Radio 1 DJ, David ‘Diddy’ Hamilton.
In 2010 I made the decision to launch my solo music career, working as a wedding saxophone player, singer and events musician. Since then I have won the hearts of many and established a reputation as one of the UK’s Top wedding saxophone players. Most recently, I won the Event Entertainment Awards’ Best Wedding Ceremony Act for South West UK Region.
I truly love what I do and this passion for my craft is evident in all my performances. Music is such a powerful tool and can encompass so many thoughts, feelings and emotions. My primary mission is to delight my audiences; and so I use a variety of genres from moody blues to modern day pop to ensure there is always something for everyone.
When I’m not busy entertaining audiences, I share my skills as a Singing and Saxophone Tutor at my local music school ‘The Music Makers Academy‘ and as a visiting peripatetic vocal tutor for Taunton Music Service.

We had the absolute honour of having Lucy perform at our wedding on 22 - 02 -20 and no words can do justice to just how amazing she is. The songs she sang for the ceremony were sensational and her performance at the drinks receptions after which were a mixture of vocals and saxophone plying were just out of this world. Every single guest commented on how fantastic she was and what a beautiful voice she has. She truly made our wedding extra special and we can’t thank her enough. Highly recommended for weddings, special occasions or events.
