PERFORMER

Giles Stelfox creates the music of a solo-artist with the sound of a band; he is a highly experienced live musician based in Reading, UK. Challenging the definition of live performance, Giles live loops arrangements of songs from scratch, whilst still showcasing his charisma and attention-grabbing energy to connect with any crowd at any event. Giles has been featured and acclaimed by BBC Introducing, Oxfam Festivals and has been a semi-finalist for The Pilton Stage Glastonbury competition in 2022, performing in front of founder, Michael Eavis. He performed over 80 shows in 2023, and he is already in high demand for 2024, with the busiest start of the year he's ever had.

For his covers sets, expect modern takes on classic covers and sing-along anthems with a set list ranging from 70s hits all the way to modern day. Highlights include: 'Pompeii', 'Wake Me Up', 'Tainted Love', ''Everybody Wants To Rule The World' As It Was', 'Babylon' and 'Everywhere'. Giles' solo live setups are acoustic, or sometimes electric, guitar driven with unique setlists, tailored to each event. He travels with his own PA and lighting, all fully self contained, PLI insured and PAT tested.

 

"An ingenious artist who manages to flesh out his pop songs with just himself and his own wizardry" - Shaun Keaveny, BBC Radio 6.
 

Giles works with various agencies including EventUK, LastMinuteMusicians and Gigrealm for club chains and functions. To book Giles directly for private or public events, please contact gilesstelfoxmusic@outlook.com.

Giles' covers repertorie consists of over 100 songs. Included are a mixture of pop, indie and rock tunes from several decades, 1970s to present day. He takes requests especially for weddings and private parties, with a two week turnaround for new songs. Giles adapts his set list for a variety of time slots. Typical sets are 2x45', 3x30' or 3x45' but he can perform day sets of up to 4 hours total performance time, with enough material to accommodate. Giles also has a DJ style playlist in between sets, so there is always music across the entire booking, even during breaks, setup and pack down.
