A wide range of songs to suit any taste, a fantastically unique and enchanting voice coupled with a wonderful stage presence and character."- Rob W

"When I saw Chess at Veeno in Leeds recently, I was so impressed by her talent. She has an exquisite and powerful voice and adds her own unique twist to well loved songs. An absolute joy to listen to, she skilfully brings songs to life in her own evocative way. She was amazing! Highly recommend!" - Ruth M

"Chess played at our wedding breakfast and was absolutely amazing. She has a gorgeous voice which helped to make our day feel extra special. As well as the range of songs in her repertoire, she learnt and performed a few songs which were special to us that we requested. She did a fantastic job of them. All of our guests were super impressed with her and wanted to know her details. Book Chess. You will not be disappointed. I hope that we will get to see her perform again, she is one of the best singers we have seen. Thank you Chess!" - Natoyah A

"Having seen Chess play at numerous gigs around the Huddersfield music scene I decided to hire her for a Mcmillan fundraiser event... She blew us all away with her beautiful acoustic covers... Highly recommended...!!!" - Andre V

"Chess was our acoustic singer at our wedding in December 2017 and she was simply amazing. When I heard her starting to sing my aisle song, it just made me so excited to walk down the aisle and marry my husband to be. Chess played for 2 hours, it was so beautiful and so fun. All of our guests really enjoyed listening to her and she made the day so much more special and memorable. Thank you so much Chess for being a part of our perfect wedding day :)" - Katie and James M

"I put on several acoustic nights around West Yorkshire, and Chess has played for me many times. I couldn't wish for a nicer musician to work with, she is always thouroughly professional and co-operative. The songs she covers are well chosen and she always brings something new to them, and stamps them with her own identity. She has a strong soulful voice and an engaging stage presence. A delightful performer who can captivate any kind of audience." - Ben W

"I've seen Chess perform at several events in York, Leeds and Huddersfield, and I buy her recordings when she makes them. Her voice is beautiful, her playing matches it perfectly, and she plays a variety of styles with ease and passion. Her range, her talent and her professionalism make her the perfect choice for any special event." - Katryn B

"We were looking for a female vocalist/guitarist to sing for us at our wedding ceremony and reception for welcome drinks. I first heard Chess through Facebook and instantly fell in love with her voice. I contacted Chess and me and my wife went to see her live. She was even better and we booked her! When she sang the songs we had chosen in church it made our wedding that extra bit different and special and we had so many comments from our guests. We then had her singing at our reception for welcome drinks and again she was amazing and made that first part of the reception so special. Chess was so accommodating to our requests and a pleasure to do business with. She is such a lovely lady as well as an amazing musician. I would love to get married again just to hear her sing and we will be carrying on going to see Chess live as much as we can. Thank you so much for making our day extra special!" X - Stewart S

"My now wife booked Chess. She told me she had booked a singer and showed me a picture of Chess.. a blue haired young lady. I then had the chance to listen to her and I was blown away.. but the chance to witness and listen to Chess sing live was unbelievable!!! I can't find the words to describe the beauty of her voice. As a person, Chess is lovely. She's very polite and an absolute pleasure to talk too. I can't praise her enough. She's just... WOW. As I'm sure my wife will have said, she's a pure talent destined for greatness. She was a huge talking point of the night (all good of course) and my wife and I haven't been able to stop raving about her. I can't write enough about Chess to compliment her and her amazing talent. I think the best thing I can say, is book her and book her now. If you have the chance too and if she's free, book her! She is just that blooming good. Thank you Chess, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect performer." - Justin B
