During my short break at last night’s gig, a colleague and extremely talented young man said ‘Inspirational Stuff Andy’. Hearing this from someone who I hold in really high esteem as not only an artist but also as a genuinely great human being, meant so much.
Like a lot of my peers I struggle at different times and at different levels with confidence. When an audience responds in a positive way, all of my self doubt leaves for a while and I try to live every word and note as if they are my last. I’m also prone to a bit of ‘over thinking ‘ and this can be quite self inhibiting.
However, that single comment made me feel better than I have for ages. Not because I crave praise but because it came from a real true source.
Thanks Fionn it meant a lot!
