So as usual I have been a busy girl gigging up and down the country promoting the release of my new single "You're The One". The single is getting such good feedback and I just want to say THANK YOU to every fan who has bought the single or even just listened to it. It's amazing to know that the song I wrote as a teenager is touching so many people across the UK and that is truly the best feeling in the world!!!
Last week I went up to Aberdeen with my dancers to perform in Cheerz Nightclub and my set went down a storm and yet again there were people at the front of the audience singing along to the words of "You're The One".....honestly MENTAL!!!!
You're The One has also been nominated for Jim Gellatly and Amazing Radio's Scottish Album of 2013 Singer/Songwriter category!!! I was buzzing when I found this out as I work very hard on my music and promote it all by myself so to get this recognition is AWESOME...I'm just waiting back to hear if I have won!!! Amazing Radio have also played the song on Jim's show for the past four weeks running which I am so grateful for...honestly thank you soo much!!! Fingers crossed ;)
I am now working hard in rehearsals with my band for my first headline show at The Oran Mor in Glasgow. Hearing the songs I wrote as a teenager with a band who have supported Razor Light and Ocean Colour Scene is CRAZY!!!! I am a very lucky girl. The show is on the 7th of December and tickets are £9 and fans can get them from the events section of this website!! Fans will see a totally different "Ashley Collins".....the real me....a true songwriter and artist. Can't wait to silence the critics who doubt me!!!
Oh and I forgot to tell you all...I'm auditioning for Britain's Got Talent again!! My moto is.... if I fail I just get back up again and try harder!!! So I'm off to Britain's Got Talent this Sunday in Edinburgh to see my good buddy "Simon Cowell" lol...wonder if he listened to my album??? I'm going to sing You're The One and prove to Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges on Britain's Got talent that I can sing and I can write good tunes!!!
I'll let you know how it goes!!!
Lots of Love
