Queen Bayard, an emerging artist based in the UK, is a seasoned singer, songwriter, musician and entertainer who lifts the spirits of her audience with her vibrant energy and soulful vocals. She grew up surrounded by music; singing in choirs, training classically in both piano and guitar, and also received a degree in musical theatre performance from Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Vocal influences include Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson and Jasmine Sullivan. When you come to see a QB show you'll enjoy a mixture of her own songs, a few covers, and well-placed dramatic drag lip-syncs.
Her debut single "I Wanna Know You" (Jan 2021), an uplifting 80's influenced bop, showcases the many things that Queen Bayard brings to the table: intelligent songwriting, strong vocals, campy flair, individuality and dynamic range. The official music video has over 2K views on YouTube and the single release party, held virtually, attracted nearly 100 people from all over the world.
Currently living in Manchester, Queen Bayard is working on her forthcoming single "Simply Made" (release TBA), a 90s/2000s inspired R&B/Soul Pop song with a cool vibe and a positive message.

Queen Bayard is an engaging and dynamic performer. With a bachelor's degree in Musical Theatre Performance from the Royal Conservtoire of Scotland she not only has a powerful singing voice but a seasoned command on stage.
She interacts with her audience (to the point that is acceptable) and gets them involved and having a great time!
The musicians on stage with her she calls her bears (Queen Bayard and the Bears); Although she doesn't mind playing gigs solo, she much prefers singing with a band.
With her extensive experience in the function gig circuit in Manchester she has access to a pool of the best musicians (bears) in town and can form a band with either just a couple Bears backing, up to a full band with all the bells and whistles --whatever the occasion asks for.
