My brain hits "reset" and I feel refreshed and impassioned. I'm loaded up with a new sense of wonderment at all of the possibilities and opportunities that the life might have to offer. It might be corny, but what can I say, I freakin' love a New Year!
2016 was immense for me. From my first international shows (Toronto, New York, Seoul), to Great Escape, my ExXtravaganzZa's, album launch and winning "Best Female" at the UMA's - I couldn't have asked for more (see photos here)! That's not to say that bad or sad things didn't happen along the way, we all have ups and downs and we all have our struggles - but a few "bad things" don't a "bad year" make (no matter how much the world is trying to tell you 2016 was "the worst year ever"! UGH BORING - your life/your year is what you make it). Over the last few weeks I've been reflecting on the last 12 months and dissecting what I liked and what I'd do differently. At the end of it all I'm feeling enlightened and empowered. The future is looking BRIGHT!
In 10 days I'm heading to Eurosonic Noorderslaag (Netherlands) with the band, and then up to Glasgow (Scotland) to play at one of Scotland's best venues: King Tuts. Later this year I'll be performing at one of my favourite festivals SXSW in Austin (Texas, US) and Isle of Wight festival (UK). These are things I could only have dreamt of saying at the start of 2016 but your support combined with all the hours my pals Team LX and I have put in have made these dreams a reality.
So thank you! If you came to a show, Pledged towards "Love Fuelled Hate", introduced a friend to my music (or did other awesome things) - you are an ExXterminator - and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love you've given and love you right back.
