From The Label:
The girl that webcast from her basement in Tooting to thousands of people across the globe now releases her debut single I wish I was a punk rocker [with flowers in my hair]. Too broke to go on the road, 24 year old singer/songwriter Sandi Thom decided to set up a webcam in her South London flat and staged a three week world tour from the basement. She spread the word about the 21 Nights From Tooting tour via Myspace.com and her own site, inviting fans to watch the tour live on the web or in person at the very modest underground venue of her basement. Pulling in an audience of 70 on the first night, news of the gigs spread like wildfire on the internet and by the end of the ‘tour’ she had 100,000 web viewers from as far afield as Russia, the USA and Pakistan. Drawing on a musical palette that varies from Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley through Carole King and Stevie Nicks to Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin, Sandi Thom joins the dots between black and white music. The album Smile… It Confuses People seamlessly blends folk and soul strains and influences
Debut album from young Scottish singer-songwriter, who allegedly landed a deal with RCA after webcasting gigs to tens of thousands of net users from her Tooting basement. This is a solid set of summery, acoustic adult pop, heavily influenced, like Thom's contemporary KT Tunstall, by female folk and rock artists of the 60s and 70s. Includes the no.2 single I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker [With Flowers In My Hair].
