Kate Nash checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@katenashmusic) on Sunday (January 25), talking about how she’s kept busy lately watching YouTube videos and offering a couple web sites to check out, as well as her feelings about January. The British singer songwriter tells readers:
So it’s cold and it’s nearly not January anymore (hooray!) I forgot how depressing it can actually be in January. The grey days and fears and insecurities and the effort needed to get out of bed in the morning. Last year I was all flying around Australia on the Big Day Out thinking January was the probably the best month in the year but being in London and trying to figure out what to do is… less inspiring… anyway, it hasn’t been all that bad, I’ve been getting involved with lots of things to keep my mind off feeling weird in January. I’ve been writing new songs and demoing them and reading venus zine. Which is the only magazine I like at the moment. It supports a lot of female artists and independent artists/shops/designers/photographers etc. It always has a great list of little online shops that sell nice things. I’ve also become heavily involved with setting up the Featured Artists Coalition, we have the launch meeting next week. It’s going to be run by artists for artists, to look after artists rights in this strange old industry. I find it so surprising that this hasn’t already been set up seeing as you have so many other organizations looking out for a lot of people in a lot of industries. But it hasn’t, and we are, and that’s exciting.
