Lights is coming to Manchester next year and guess who is going to see her?! I absolutely cannot wait.
She has been one of my inspirations for such a long time now, when she came to the UK last year I couldn’t make her shows and was absolutely devastated. But I purchased some tickets yesterday morning and no matter what, I will definitely be seeing her.
I have no idea what it is about Lights, I wouldn’t even say that I am into that kind of music. But there is something so captivating about her that I cannot stop listening to her. I think it might be the fact that I have a lot of respect for her. She’s not one of these musicians that are only good on their CD, she can actually sing live, and on top of that, is an amazing musician.
Everything about her seems real and I think it’s that reality which makes you feel as though you’ve known her forever.
I got the chance to interview her earlier this year. I was absolutely bricking it, but when we got talking it was literally just like a conversation you would have with your friend. She was so humble and kind – as though she doesn’t actually realise how good of a singer/songwriter she is. (Read the interview here.)
She has a tonne of love and time for her fans too which is something rare with the industry now.
She is such a beautiful human… You have no idea how excited I am to see her next year!
Also, yesterday I got the train home to see my family. We’re going to put the Christmas tree up this weekend. There are too many exciting things going on!
Lights and home in one day – Christmas really has come early!
