I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Donny Utton and I am a professional vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter with over 15 years of experience playing in live bands, stage shows, and duos all over the UK.
Donny studied at The Brighton Institute of Modern Music, purely to develop his talented and passion as a guitarist. One afternoon in class donny was randomly chosen to cover for a back-in singer, only to have ever sung in his room, he shyly walked behind the lead singer and placed himself quietly beside the microphone, pulling his cap down to hide his face. Before the song could finish Damien Keys one of the founder of Brighton Institute of Modern Music interrupted, 'You are a lead singer Donny! I'm putting you into the singing course next year!'. This is where Donny gained confidence as a singer and developed distinctive & unique vocal sound & songs.
I have a large repertoire of songs covering most styles of music including, pop, country, rock n roll, jazz, acoustic, singalong, and many more songs ranging from the 1940′s to this present day.
I am always taking new requests and building my setlists so that when I return I can play what people have wanted to hear previously. I am helped along by the use of top-quality backing tracks and I have all my own professional equipment including a portable PA system, effect pedals, acoustic guitar, and a new looper that I will be adding to future shows.
I am available for bookings 7 days a week, during both day times and evenings.
My fees are dependent mainly on the length of time that I am required to play and of course the distance I have to travel.
I love what I do and love singing to appreciative audiences and would love to become a part of your team bringing music to your residents and hopefully many smiles.
I bring a nice calm vibe with me and can play soft ballads to relax as well and louder events if people want to stand up.
I hope to meet you and your residents and truly hope I can bring my music to them.
