Andrea Begley had a bit of a problem when she entered the studio yesterday, to begin work on her debut album.
The Voice winner is keen to get moving on her new music as soon as possible, in a bid to avoid going down the same road as former show star Leanne Mitchell, who suffered two embarrassing incidents when both her debut single and album both bombed and failed to make the UK top 40 charts.
Danny O’Donoghue told Andrea that she needed to get moving and pump her album out asap, while her name is still fresh in fans’ mind, but she hit a bit of a stumbling block this week…..and all because of hay fever.
It seems that Andrea’s allergies are causing some problems with her singing voice and she tweeted fans today saying:
“I’m the only one not blowing my nose! This albums going to be a soundtrack for hay fever sufferers at this rate! Lol”
However, the Northern Irish singer was her own worst enemy and admitted that if she could, she’d be recording outside in the midst of all that pollen. She teased:
“Another beautiful day to be working on Music. Pity you can’t record outside #shouldbeinthepool”
The studio session seemed to go well for Andrea, despite her blocked nose and runny eyes and after her recording session she told fans:
“Leaving sunny Guildford, had a great time at the studio! ”
As well as recording new music, Begley is also keen to get showcasing it and this week she announced two headline shows. The 26 year old will perform in Belfast’s Ulster Hall on Sunday, 3 November 2013 and in Union Chapel, London on the 4th.
Andrea advertised the concerts on her Twitter page saying:
“Tickets are now on sale for two headline shows in November, can’t wait! ”
