celeb spotting in Birmingham
some months ago I got a call from Simon Cowell’s office letting me know that they really really really wanted to sign me to the Syco label but to be able to do so they’d have to have me on Britain’s Got Talent first. They promised that I’d do ‘very well’ and have an amazing first audition that’d go viral - described as a ‘Susan Boyle moment’. They also let me know that, as an acoustic singer/songwriter this would be my only real chance of getting any recognition. I politely declined. Had I known then that I could’ve gone on to have been beaten to the prestigious title of Britain’s most talented thing by some flexible shadows I might not have been so hasty to refuse. Alas, here I am sharing my tragic life story with 111 Tumblr followers instead of millions of ITV viewers. Anyway the moral of the story is stop answering calls from withheld numbers in the hope that it’s Beyoncé. Oh and please come to my gig tomorrow ta.
last night was wonderful! Thanks to everyone who made it so. Special thanks to my lovely band who made me feel like I was gigging for the first time again (in the best possible way). Totally blown away by This is The Kit and honoured to have been granted temporary band membership for a little sing! Now it’s on to Long Division… is 5 hours sleep enough to sing 6 songs? We’ll find out! The Orangery. 3.15pm.
