London, Berlin and Barcelona

  • London, Berlin and Barcelona
    April 02, 2015

    I am so lucky to have been in three amazing cities in the last week: London, Berlin, and Barcelona.  Okay, so London doesn’t really count as travelling for me, but it’s still cool.

    In London, I get to share the stage and watch amazing bands all the time.  Last week, I supported a band from Australia called Sheppard.  They were all so nice and performed with SO MUCH energy.  They sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for their mum who was in the audience.  She was so embarrassed, but it gave me ideas for my mum next year.

    The Echo Awards was such a great experience.  I performed ‘Sun Goes Down’ at my first award show, walked down my first red carpet (which was actually purple), and it was my first time in Berlin.  I was a little nervous at the dress rehearsal because I had to stand on a spinning stage.  I would have to go into hiding forever if I fell off during the show.  I didn’t fall and the performance was awesome.  Robin even won an award. 

    There was a lot of time to walk around backstage and get selfies with everyone.  It was also the first time I met Felix Jaehn in person after a year of chatting online.  It felt like we had known each other for a lifetime.  In my dressing room, I danced a bit and did some Yoga – I wonder what everyone else gets up to in dressing rooms.

    After the show, I went to my first after-party.  I never thought I would see so many business men in suits doing crazy dance moves and I’m not so sure I want to see that again!  I danced for hours until everyone wanted to go to sleep – I could have stayed up a little longer.

    When I woke up the next day, I had completely lost my voice and I had to go do radio interviews around Berlin with Felix all day.  I think Felix was happy that I couldn’t annoy him in the car that morning, but luckily my voice came back in time for the interviews.

                                                               

    I spent the next three days in Barcelona filming a music video for our new song ‘Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)’. We danced on a rooftop with some new friends, drove around tiny alleyways in the city and watched the sunrise over an empty beach.  I had to wake up really early to catch the sun, but it was totally worth it.  The only other person on the beach was an old man with a metal detector who kept on getting in front of the camera – maybe he’ll end up in the video. Can't wait to show you the video.  It will be a good reminder of this incredible trip!
