Sandi Thom checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sandithom) on Tuesday (December 23), commenting on her participation in Hogmanay, SXSW, label issues, the economy and wishing fans Merry Christmas. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
So not too long til SXSW (for those who dont know its a festival in Texas) really looking forward to it as everyone from Amy Winehouse to KT have been there and its had a really big effect on their career in the US. After SXSW were gonna be heading North to Chicago taking in a few gigs on the way and then East to New York… my favorite place in the world!
It’s going to be such an exciting few months what with the UK tour and then off to the States again. Although as soon as I get back I’m gettin stuck into my next album, oh my friends I can’t wait to get this one on the shelf… it’s so important to me… I’m not going to let my label hijack this one like they did the last… I was under so much pressure to make my second album I felt suffocated and I fear this may have resulted in it not being as successful as the first… but I won’t let that happen again… I refuse to let anyone pressurize me to finish it.
