I’m Awsa, a London-based singer and songwriter. As a solo artist I’ve performed on stages as diverse as the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, Royal Albert Hall, Koko and Notting Hill Arts Club and for events ranging from weddings and birthdays to fashion shows. As a backing vocalist I have sung for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Emeli Sandé, Stevie Wonder, Gorgon City and David Guetta. From acoustic and intimate to a full blown band, I offer a range of shows tailored to your home event. I am an entertainer and do not provide background music: but if you want a live performance – whether an intimate show to sit back and enjoy or one that has all your guests dancing and singing along– I’m your Hometainer.
