A new message from Susan - March 2010
22nd March 2010
Last Monday 15th March was a great day. I flew to London to have a meeting with my record label, Syco.
We had lunch together first of all and then my A&R man introduced me to a songwriting team. I spent some time with them at the home of one of the writers. It was great. They were very nice people. We talked about possible song ideas for my next album. It was a very unusual thing for me to do, to be there at the start of an idea, talking about my thoughts and feelings for potential songs! It will be very interesting to see what develops. We shall see.
I am really looking forward to going back into the recording studio. It is where it all really started for me. I remember when I first went into Steve Mac’s studio and saw all his gold and platinum discs for record sales of other artists. I was both daunted and impressed! That seems like such a short time ago and now I am planning my second album.
When I first started recording in London it immediately felt like a very comfortable environment. Now I enjoy all aspects of my career. I have really enjoyed wearing the beautiful clothes, doing photo shoots. And now that I know what to expect I also enjoy the interviews and performances for TV shows. I have been to so many countries and I really get quite excited about the travel these days. I have been to France, Germany, Holland, Denmark, America, Japan…so many places. Next weekend I am going to Japan for a second time and I can’t wait. The Japanese people are so lovely and polite and kind. I am going to be performing live with an orchestra which will be fantastic!
There is also talk of going to Australia as well – at the end of April. I won’t believe it until I am on the way! I am so excited about it. A year ago I could never have dreamed that I would be travelling to other side of the globe.
In each place I have been fortunate to have met the most wonderful, kind people. I am told there will be a large group of people travelling to Japan to watch me perform. I will see you all there!
As always, I want to thank everyone for their continued support, for the sentiments you send me in letters and emails and for the lovely comments I receive from people wherever I am – whether it be in Japan or Blackburn when I am doing my shopping.
Thank you all.
