Folk Bands and Artists
Amy Macdonald lives a life that’s ordinary in every way but one. The 28 year old has sold over 9 million records, conquered Europe and won countless awards. Yet when she arrives at a restaurant in Glasgow to discuss her glorious new album, Life In A Beautiful Light, no one bats an eyelid. Which is precisely how she likes it. 2014 has seen Amy play at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow with Rod Stewart, play at the Ryder Cup opening ceremony and win Scottish Fashion Icon 2014, as well as headlining sold out shows across Europe.
Macdonald has been famous since the age of 18, when she burst in to the charts with a debut album, This Is The Life, that bore the hallmarks of her homeland. Rootsy folk-rock might describe it, or just gutsy pop played on real instruments. There were no tricks or trying to keep up with trends. Live, Macdonald didn’t need dancers, props or expensive light shows. Her image was as honest as her songs, in which real tales of real lives became stomping singalongs.
