Full Description
Fil Straughan has been singing and writing music for many years. His distinctive blend of the energy of Marvin Gaye and the passion of Luther Vandross can be heard on all of the many recordings to his credit. It is a sound rooted in the classics, with the modernity and personality of Fil – a personality that can be heard in the inspiration, experience and passion within each and every song. Definitely a creative force, Fil also enjoys collaborating with others – whether he has co-written the song or is simply adding his rich voice to the mix. Fil released his first UK album in 2008 to fantastic acclaim. His second, 'FiL the SouL', was released in July 2011 and is already on a radio station near you! It is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby, as well as streaming services such as Spotify. In the past Fil has worked with Ray Lewis’ Drifters, Hot Chocolate, and many others. It is a testament to his versatility and skill that such a variety of producers, DJs and musicians have requested his smooth voice and energetic presence on collaborative ventures. From Jazz to House, and everything in between, Fil Straughan knows music, and it shines through in his accomplished and unique vocal skill. Fil’s most recent public project was with bassist George Anderson from Shakattack – ‘Lay Your Hands On Me’, which is currently in rotation on the UK radio station Smooth FM, and others.

FiL is not a supplier...
FiL is not a supplier - he is (and has become) a crutial partner and friend when it comes to such an event. Music is one of, if not THE most important elements to a large function, and FiL smashed it. The level of effort is second to none, his musicianship is exceptional, and I know how respected he is/enjoyable he is to work with, not just from my own experience, but supported by every other supplier when they find out who's singing. A true gent, and one of the best wedding singers around.

We could never thank Fil enough for the absolutely amazing...
We could never thank Fil enough for the absolutely amazing set he played for us at our wedding. Our guests adored him and were all commenting on how he was the best wedding singer they had ever seen and heard. The way Fil personalised songs made everything so much more meaningful, and his voice is out of this world. He ensured his set-list included everything we wanted, and really created a wonderful, romantic tone. He worked seamlessly with our DJ and was just a joy to have with us.

Fil was an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding and complete MADE the party what it was. Almost every guest (200) commented on how amazing his performance was and his ability to interact with everyone there and get them up dancing. I would highly recommend Fil and look forward to using him at our next big event. I couldn't commend his performance highly enough.

Even friends getting married in the near future have ask for his details for there own wedding as they were blown away. As a singer myself the entertainment was crucial to me and omg he did not disappoint! I would hire Fil 100x over if I could! Would highly recommend to anyone! There is not another entertainer like him out there!
