So I’m heading off to Europe and the Uk for my first tour outside of Australia as The Lachy Doley Group. I’ve been many times before playing keys for other artists which has been great. You just turn up and come along for the ride
Not so easy this time. This Euro Uk tour has been about 2 years in the making. So much work has gone into it and I’ve been lucky enough to have some incredible people on my side to make it happen. I’ve never been so nervous and so excited about something at the same time. In many ways this is a dream come true. I can now call myself an international touring artist.
But along with this comes the doubt. Being successful in our little country of Australia is one thing but can I cut it with the rest of the world. I’m constantly going through phases of knowing I can because no one out there does what I do, just to cut myself down again with fears and anxieties of turning up and not living up to the hype.
I’m so thankful I’ve got this wonderful family that’s supporting me in every way. To be away from them for so long on something that may be a very expensive waste of time but on the other hand could possibly be the start of something I can only dream of, makes me the luckiest guy around.
Thanks for reading this little note and if your in Europe or the UK I would love to see you at one of my shows.
