Faye is a Dublin based singer available for weddings, civil ceremonies, funerals, memorial services and all corporate events.
Some of Faye's achievements include her Bachelor of Music degree, which she received from University College Dublin in 2009 and her Masters of Musicology, which she achieved in 2011. In late 2013 Faye created Blue Birdy’s Music Club, a musical and imaginative play company for young children and their families. www.bluebirdys.ie.
Faye's talent was encouraged in the gentlest of ways. At the age of eight she began singing in the children's choir in the Church of the Assumption, Booterstown (where she still cantors today). What began as a weekend hobby soon transformed into a passion that has led to her career today, singing at ceremonies and events all over Ireland. Faye has also sung internationally at a number of events including the catechetical sessions of World Youth Day 2013, which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Faye began training with Canadian soprano Catherine Redding in 2009. The accomplished soprano has allowed Faye to explore the full capacity of her voice without restricting her to one genre. Faye’s music education, love for musical theatre and equal passion for Irish culture has allowed her to experience and perform numerous styles of music. It is the genuine emotion within her voice and her openness to all styles that will truly make your day special.
We were fortunate enough to have Faye sing at our wedding in Holy Cross Abbey, Co. Tipperary last August. We both work in Event Production on some of the country's largest events and as such, picking the right people to perform at our wedding was exceptionally important to us. As many of our guests also work in the industry, they were expecting something exceptional too which is exactly what Faye delivered! Not one to take chances, we had gone to see Faye perform in a church in Dublin a few months before our wedding. We were so impressed that we asked Faye if she would sing some of the same songs at our wedding as she was just amazing!! On our big day, Faye sang on her own mostly and was accompanied by a 4 piece string quartet for some hymns/songs. As they had not met before our wedding, Faye coordinated a little warm up in the church beforehand which was enough to make sure everything harmonised perfectly together. Faye was exceptionally professional throughout and so flexible in dealing with our (sometimes silly!) requests. In contrast to our pre wedding expectations, it turned out that the church part of the day was by far our favourite. This came down to Faye largely as she blew everyone away! Even Fr. Furlong was in awe!! We would highly recommend Faye for any event type, not just weddings as she is dedicated to giving her best everytime she sings.Shane & Elaine Magnum Events Ireland www.magnumevents.eu
I first heard Faye sing at a good friend's wedding just over a year ago and I was completely blown away. I remember everyone was talking about how beautiful the church had been afterwards and when I got engaged a few months later I knew I wanted Faye to sing at my wedding. I work in the events industry so the music was a really big part of the wedding day, and it was really important to me that it was of very high quality. Faye did not disappoint. From the word go she was extremely helpful, advising us about the structure of the ceremony music and suitable hymns. Faye also worked with a guitarist we had selected and organised a rehearsal before the day which really put our minds at ease. In addition to the hymns for the ceremony, we picked a number of secular songs we loved for the beginning and end of mass, Faye learnt them without hesitation and sang them beautifully on the day. I would highly recommend Faye for any occasion, she will really add that something special!Susanna Lagan, Creative Director, St. Patrick's Festival
Faye was referred to us by two friends, from our first consultation we found her to be very friendly and accommodating. An example of this, my family have French roots therefore we asked Faye to learn a song in French which she sang so eloquently without any hesitation. We both would highly recommend Faye not only does her professional approach make you feel confident, her beautiful voice which we can not emphasise how truly beautiful it is, will make your day more memorable not just for you but your guests also.Carl & Clare Foulksmills
Faye sang very movingly at my father's recent funeral mass. With her detailed knowledge of music and experience she helped us select the various pieces of music and suggested some lovely hymns we hadn't considered. Her kindness and sensitivity at this very emotional time for us was hugely appreciated. A great number of people who attended the service including our own parish priest remarked on her beautiful voice and felt her performance was a very lovely and fitting tribute.Laura Fitzgerald
Faye has over a decades experience in music and the ceremony. Talking you through the service, giving advice and helping you choose your music programme are all part of the service.
Faye has experience singing with a range of accompanists, most frequently organ, guitar and string quartet and she can recommend or organise accompanists for your service if requested.
Faye is happy to learn a new piece to cater to your taste. As a fluent Irish speaker, it is her pleasure to sing anything in the Irish language but she has also learned pieces in French, Polish and Italian for specific occasions. (Adequate time needed).
I never take for granted the opportunity to sing on the most important day of someone's life. My aim is to greet the opportunity with an equal balance of warmth and professionalism. My education and career have allowed me to understand music, not just as an enjoyable experience but as a universal phenomenon that enables us to bond, develop and communicate what cannot be expressed with words. Needless to say I understand how important music is on your special day. Even though each ceremony is different, this understanding, patience and professionalism remain constant
