My name is Jennifer Clarke and I'm a professional solo singer who plays keyboards/piano and acoustic guitar. I play original material and pop/soul/r'n'b/country covers for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and corporate events and private parties/events. Gigs can be tailored to suit and I often work with additional guitarists and other musicians depending on the type of occasion. I have even sung with a harpist at a wedding in Ireland! I can also accompany myself where a more stripped back sound is preferred.
In the recent past I have toured as opening act to Michael Bolton, Kevin Costner and Ronan Keating, performing shows all over the UK and Ireland, America and mainland Europe. I have performed at several festivals, worked in Nashville for two years as a singer and songwriter and had my music used on children's television in America and on the Discovery Channel. I have performed live on Irish television and had my music reach number 3 in the Irish download charts as well as received international airplay across Ireland, the UK and Germany. I was also endorsed by Gibson Acoustic Guitars in Berlin. I have performed at many wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and have even done some house concerts!
I have a large repertoire of original songs, many of which I wrote in Nashville with Grammy Award winning songwriters and I can play a diverse range of covers from Adele, Carrie Underwood and Eva Cassidy to The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and Cyndi Lauper. I can also learn a song or songs with enough notice and add that personal touch to your special occasion.
I am well-suited for drinks receptions and wedding ceremonies as I can play quite a relaxed set which can really set the perfect romantic atmosphere or for a private party or corporate event I can add a bit of glamour and belt out the big ballads.
I am willing to travel long distance depending on the arrangements.
If you have any further enquiries and would like to discuss prices or availability please get in touch!
Hope to hear from you soon,
