About Ed Southall – professional wedding pianist for hire in London and internationally
Ed Southall is a professional London-based pianist who is in demand to perform at weddings, corporate events and private parties throughout South East England.
Ed studied Music at the Royal College of Music and Cambridge University.
During his time as a student, he was regularly called upon as an accompanist for choirs and soloists.
In late 2015, Ed had the seed of an idea for an Airbnb concept for booking outstanding live music for weddings and events...and FixTheMusic was born.
I'm regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah Hotel in London.
Aside from entertaining at luxury hotels in London, Ed is sought after to play piano for ballet classes, church services and funerals in London.
Having grown up in Jersey, Ed has also performed at venues in the Channel Islands, providing background music for corporate events and weddings.
Ed can play a mixture of modern pop and indie covers, as well as more classical repertoire.
Feel free to ask him about any song requests you have and he will incorporate them into his set list, provided you give him enough notice!
His standard performance time is 2 x 45-minute sets with a short break in between.
This means about 12 songs per set, so 24 songs in total. If your venue has a piano or digital keyboard, he will be able to perform on this.
Ed has just been booked on FixTheMusic for a wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire and at Dorton House in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, as well as a corporate summer party in Jersey.
He is available for events throughout the UK, especially in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
So if you're looking to hire one of the finest wedding and cocktail pianists London has to offer, get in touch with Ed Southall.
"Ed was just so brilliant! He was so good at communicating before the event. He is so talented and his repertoire is vast and varied. He also had the instinct to judge the people and the room (and the drinks consumed!) and play music to suit the vibe as it got more party-like! He made my mum's birthday so magical and we got so many compliments about him from our guests! I will definitely book him again for anything we organise!"
"Hi Ed, Our guests really enjoyed your playing and one of them was moved to tears (in a good way). Very best wishes, Jo & Duncan."
"Hi Ed, Thank you SO SO much for the absolutely perfect reception music. We cannot thank you enough for stepping in and making it so magical with your exceptional playing! The guests were full of praise and your song choices were spot on! The playing was simply magical and the music selection was exceptional. You created the most welcoming, calm atmosphere - everything we had hoped for and more! We would not hesitate to recommend FixTheMusic and of course Ed himself. Warmest Wishes, Zoe & Tim Douglas."
