Amy Macdonald updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@amymacdonald) on Monday (September 29). The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
Over the past few years I have worked so hard and in Europe it’s starting to really pay off. I am so proud of everything I’ve achieved. It’s strange to be starting over again and playing tiny venues in the US, but you have to start somewhere.
I have gigged and gigged and gigged some more and I have a real sense of achievement. I don’t see the sense in being hyped up and instantly playing to 5000 people, where is the fun in that? My band and I have so many happy memories of playing in tiny, empty venues and we all feel so happy to have come so far together.
A year ago, we played a European tour. Every gig was half empty and the venues were very small. Next month we start another European tour, most of the venues have been upgraded and we’re now playing in places that are around 3000 capacity.
In November we play to a sold out audience of 5500 in Holland, compared to 100 people last year.
