SIMONA BUDD

CABARET

"Simona is always my first choice of musician. She is a consummate professional and arrives extremely well-prepared. I feel incredibly safe with Simona at the keys, and have no qualms about the complexities of my music because she never fails to deliver. Her transcriptions are of a very high standard, too, and she offers a very reasonable and fast service. An absolute joy to work with, I cannot recommend Simona enough.”

“We have been working with Simona Budd for around 3 years now. Her professionalism and creativity as an accompanist and a workshop facilitator are second to none. She has quickly joined us in our passion for what we do and it is always a delight to have her on board with a project”.

”…For the first time in my performing life I felt I knew exactly what I was doing and that I was in total control. This feeling was cultivated with the help of my pianist, Simona Budd. Although we had only met once before the show I felt totally at ease and totally supported. She listens, to the point of it feeling like she was reading my mind at one moment, and went with everything I did. This happens rarely. I have only worked with a handful of pianists who I have this kind of connection with and she has definitely been added to the very short list”.
