Mel is the perfect performer. She's got a lovely, unusual voice and puts her own spin on the songs so it makes it feel personal and special. She is also friendly and fun, taking the time to chat in between songs so it really feels like your own gig. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Mel was fantastic. Very easy to work with - helped me plan the performance with song picks etc. She was great - beautiful acoustic rendition of classic songs. Engaged an international crowd of about 25 people from around the world. And even stayed on to sing happy birthday to my wife as she cut the cake. Perfect way to add structure and an anchor to a potentially chaotic zoom party. Cant beat live music. Thank you!

A group of friends were supposed to be going to an oxford Trinity college commemoration ball but it was cancelled. So they had a 'Zoom ball'

I just wanted to say a massive thank you from myself and the rest of the people who joined for a small zoom Commemoration Ball. We had great performances from Borders Duo to kick us off and Mel Latimer later in the evening. It really made it a much more memorable evening and experience so a real thank you to the artists but also to you and Simone for setting up Lockdown Presents. Can't thank you enough.
