4-piece wedding & function band offering high-quality live entertainment
House of Harmony was formed at a mutual friend’s wedding when each one of us was asked to play at the wedding reception. Intended as a one-off gig, the enjoyment of playing together resulted in the creation of House of Harmony.
MEET THE BAND
Felicity began playing the piano at the age of 4 and from then on was seeking every opportunity to make music. She sang with Derby Cathedral Choir, becoming Head Girl and singing in many wonderful cathedrals, including St Paul’s in London and Notre Dame in Paris. Whilst growing up, Felicity was also busy with youth theatres, orchestras and wind bands, playing principal oboe for Derbyshire City and County wind band and orchestra. She graduated from the University of York with a BA (Hons) degree in Music and currently teaches singing to students of all ages whilst studying for her Masters in Music Therapy.
GUITAR / VOCALS
Some of Jamie's unique approach to guitar is due to his classical training at Birmingham Conservatoire where he acheived his BMus (Hons) degree. Jamie plays as part of the instrumental trio ‘Threaded’ with whom he tours the UK regularly. He has also performed with some of the top folk players in Joe Broughton's Conservatoire Folk Ensemble, headlining big festivals such as Towersey and performing in the legendary Royal Albert Hall. Jamie also works on outreach projects, such as playing in the wards of Royal Derby Hospital, delivering song-writing workshops and teaching guitar, which he has done for over 10 years.
Stephen began playing the bass at the age of 14 and shortly afterwards joined his school swing band, jazz ensemble and musical theatre band. He studied music at the University of Leeds and now greatly enjoys his work playing the bass for local musicals, big bands, jazz trio and various other music outreach projects. He is a keen cyclist and also works part-time as a choral singer and accountant.
Jack began playing drums at the age of 13 and hasn’t looked back. Previously playing saxophone and keyboard, he really found his feet on the kit. During school, Jack played in a number of classical orchestras, rock groups and big bands including the East Midlands Youth Jazz Orchestra. He studied for a Masters Degree in Music at the University of Nottingham and now teaches Music and Music Technology in north Nottinghamshire. Jack also plays for a number of local amateur dramatic societies and musically directs his annual school show. He is also a keen cook and runner, regularly running for a number of local charities.
