I set up the Maida Vale Singers because I felt that the middle area of work, Musicals, Operetta & Light Classical, was not being adequately covered. This is the area that suits me best, as I have a classical background, with a passion for lighter music, so I have been singing this type of music all of my life. I also studied as a professional percussionist, so I am 'hot' on rhythm, and getting music performed tightly and accurately.
In my 20+ years of performing on stage, as well as working as a session singer, I have built up a database of nearly 500 singers. As the singers are individually selected, depending on their suitability for each particular job, there is little tension within the group, resulting in a relaxed atmosphere.
On top of using the best session singers in the business, I am constantly on the look-out for fresh new talent, and visit the showcases and productions at The Royal Academy of Music and Mountview Theatre School, as well as other music colleges and drama schools. As a result, I have an outstanding database of soloists to draw from, for step out roles etc. with 'playing-ages' ranging from mid teens upwards.
The advantages of booking the Maida Vale Singers are; An unsurpassable attention to detail, and a much better atmosphere in the sessions, creating a better end result in less time. The singers are happy, the fixer is happy, and the client is happy.

" Despite the embarrassment of riches in the cast, the star of the show was the Maida Vale Singers under Christopher Dee. At times subtle, at times explosive, they were simply mesmerizing, and the wall of sound they produced in the finale made me glad to be alive." ***** Matthew Peacock - Opera Now
