Summer is "talented" -- her piano and string arrangements of my compositions are "awesome" and "badass...Great job!"

Skrillex

Summer's ability "to write and record [an] arrangement in 24 hrs" is "amazing" and makes her a "true pro... Keep up the rad work."

" Love your Justice covers!... Amazing! I've forwarded it to the band and I've posted it on Ed Banger Facebook! "

" I have known Summer initially through auditions, and have recently had the pleasure of watching one of her solo performances for Sunday brunch at the Waterline restaurant at the Balboa Bay Club. I’ve been around musicians for a long time and never have I seen a pianist with Summer’s array of abilities: she is able to flow seamlessly song to song from her seemingly bottomless, completely internal, collection of well over a thousand songs. Her arrangements are always fresh and on the spot, making each performance a unique sonic experience while incorporating classical, electronic, alternative, rock, hip-hop and pop. Whether you just want to digest to beautiful music, play a classy game of “name that tune,” or watch her fingers cast their spells over the keys, you are bound to be as in awe of Summer as I was. Truly a unique talent and personality in a world saturated with the same old piano players. "

"Summer is extremely talented! Could not be happier having her! Summer played at my wedding ceremony in the Mural Room at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. I can't say enough good things about her. Everyone, including my coordinator, gushed about how amazingly talented she was. Summer was professional and accommodating to all of my questions and requests. She had no issues with my song requests and played them beautifully. She has lots of music available to listen to on Apple Music, YouTube, and her website. Thank you so much Summer!"

"Fantastic Pianist!! Summer performed for a small group of us and we were all very impressed and very happy with how it all went. I had asked her to blend in some 90's bands into her repertoire (my wife's favorite music!) and the choices were fantastic. She arrived early, played far longer than we had originally allowed time for (which was great) and was a very pleasant and easy person to get along with and communicate with. I'd hire her again in a heart beat."

"SO INCREDIBLE. We had the best time listening to Summer play. She had such amazing variety, and truly blew away our expectations. She was really down to earth and I wanted her to stay and hang out at the party after! If I ever found myself needing a pianist for another event I would want it to be her 1000x over!"

Nicole Lesmeister

"Wow, Wow, Wow!! We have never heard such wonderful sounds come from our piano played by a beautiful, charming young lady pianist. She was amazing and so gracious! After she played her first arrangement and stopped, I was breathless!! I know everyone was very impressed at our party from their comments after.. We will have her over again just to play for my wife and I. Just astounding!! Thank you Summer!! "

" I, as well as the many guests who attended the art exhibit of Charmaine Pack at the Long Beach Playhouse were overwhelmed by the presence of Summer Swee-Singh. Summer delighted us with her talented piano playing and elevated this event above any other experienced at the Long Beach Playhouse. Although at this event, Summer played background music I would recommend her for any event where a piano player is desired. She truly is a multi-talented professional with much to offer any event. "

" Summer is simply the best!!! This was the second year that Summer played our Christmas party and she was outstanding! She played beautifully for 90 minutes straight- weaving together Christmas classics and modern hits; our guests were blown away by her talent and artistry. Summer even played a couple requests and let some of the guests sing along with her. She is a delight to work with- she's professional, polite and punctual. If you are looking for an amazing addition to your party - HIRE SUMMER! "

Joy Hamabe

" Could not have been a more perfect party! Summer was very professional from start to finish. Her playing was amazing! She weaves effortlessly through contemporary, classical and holiday music without a pause. Not only would I highly recommend her, we will be having her back for our next party. Thank you Summer, you made the party one to remember for everyone. Thanks, Dan "

" My name is Christa Kropp. I'm the Program Chair for the Orange County Philharmonic Society Town and Country Committee. Summer played for 50 minutes without stop. She gave new meaning to the word "medley". Her playing, apart from flawless technique, was filled with great emotions that went right to one's soul and lingered for hours. She is a true artist! The audience was dazzled showing their appreciation with an extensive standing ovation. It was a dreamy performance that will not soon be forgotten by anyone in attendance. I am so pleased to have found her. Love to have her play for us again sometime in the future. She is such a warmhearted lovely person with stunning looks. "

" Summer was great and she even found us a vocalist to sing alongside her. She was on time, professional and received an overwhelming response from our guests! "

Alex Gould

" Summer played beautifully the piano at my wedding ceremony. It was outstanding. Thank you Summer for giving a touch of romance and elegance to my ceremony. "

Aida Winkler

" I seriously cannot say enough about how awesome Summer is! She made our wedding so "us" and we couldn't have chosen a better pianist. If you're younger and enjoy Avicii, Daft Punk, Skrillex, etc then don't hesitate to book- but if not, don't worry, she nailed the classics too :) She is fun and adorable and by far the easiest vendor to work with- as well as being the most "bang for your buck”! I will definitely be hiring her again and recommending her to everyone! THANK YOU SUMMER!! p.s. you can watch her play at the Balboa Bay Resort on Sundays 10-1. "

Erika Heintz

" Summer is an extremely talented person - fantastic pianist and lovely to have at any party! We contacted Summer to play for a few hours at our cocktail party-wedding in the OC after finding a youtube video of her covering Thrice (nostalgia for us), best decision EVER. Summer was extremely professional throughout the process of booking her, went out of her way to make sure the facilities would be operating correctly on the day-of and played amazingly! She even learned Bohemian Rhapsody for us and was extremely accommodating - and she brought her boyfriend who was a gem too ;). I would wholeheartedly recommend Summer to anyone in the future, she really keys into the audience and has a great range and lots of talent! So happy she could be a part of our crazy day! "

" Summer is absolutely amazing. Words can't even express the talent this girl has. She takes your ideas and makes them a million times better! She is a true piano prodigy that is able to take any song or idea you give her and bring it to life. We had Summer play at our wedding of 2/15/15. She performed "Gone, Gone Gone" by Phillip Phillips for the processional, "Canon in D" (even played the specific parts requested when the bride walked down, and "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz after we were pronounced husband and wife. Summer also sent us samples of the songs before the ceremony so we were assured of what we were going to hear the wedding day. We were so thankful to have a live pianist play at our wedding, it's so much more personable and romantic than DJ music. People complimented our pianist Summer throughout the reception and still now,, weeks after our wedding. Thanks Summer for your talents and beauty. Very professional. "

Devin Gregory

" I recently had Summer play at my wedding and I am so glad I did! She showed up on time, she was dressed professionally, and she played beautifully! She recommended excellent songs for various parts of the ceremony and it made my planning that much easier! My family members were all very impressed at how tuned in she was to the event and how she was able to time her music well and controlled the volume perfectly and appropriately. I am so happy I hired Summer to play at my wedding and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you, thank you, thank you Summer!! "

Kelly Ritchie

" Summer saved the (wedding) day and was beyond impressive. I called her on a Friday a week before my wedding to ask if she would play a specific song as me and my now wife walked down the aisle. She had never heard of the song but said “no problem, I can learn it!”. Saturday (no joke, less than 24 hours later) she sent me a clip of her with her first rendition. It was nearly flawless. Her performance day-of was perfect. Throughout the whole process she was professional as well. She responded to calls and emails within hours. Day-of she arrived 3 hours early to make sure the set up was correct and provided beautiful background music while our guests arrived. 6 out of 5 stars. Hire her. You won’t be disappointed. "
