The Voice Winner Andrea Begley Lobbies For Disabled Peoples' Experience At Gigs

The partially sighted winner of 2013's singing talent show The Voice, Andrea Begley, has voiced her concerns over disabled fans' experience at gigs. "I have had some frustrating experiences at gigs and festivals," confessed Begley, who apparently celebrated her victory by going to a Laura Marling gig. "Sometimes access can be poor because of lots of steps and poor lighting. But often the problem can lie with a lack of knowledge on the part of staff. I think it is essential for venues to train all their staff in disability awareness so as they are able to deal sensitively with disabled customers."

Hailing from County Tyrone, the singer lost 90% of her vision after a degenerative childhood disease, yet plays guitar and piano and hopes to someday collaborate with the likes of Adele, Newton Faulkner and Ed Sheeran. The 27 year-old from Northern Ireland beat favourite Leah McFall to sign a £100,000 recording contract. McFall was being coached by The Voice judge and former Black Eyed Peas', Will.i.am, who seemed set on knocking the wind out of the ecstatic winner's sails with an odd, unsportsmanly tweet: "You should feel the audiences vibration in the room tonight after the public's vote... its unexplainable... so sad... perplexed." According to Yahoo!'s omg!, Begley was personally congratulated by the American singer and producer after the gig, saying she has "no hard feelings."

Newton Faulkner - Write It On Your Skin Album Review


Hairy, dreadlock-sporting, acoustic-folk maestro Newton Faulkner has made quite a household name for himself over the last few years. After enjoying mainstream success with songs such as Dream Catch Me (although many people asked would recognise that song, but be unable to say who wrote it), he's back with a new full length studio album, entitled Write it on Your Skin.

Newton Faulkner - Write it on Your Skin Album Review

Write it on Your Skin is, in a nutshell, everything one would come to expect from a Newton Faulkner album. It's fair to say, he hasn't exactly pushed the boat out in terms of how the songs are constructed. It's typical Newton Faulkner, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Typical Newton Faulkner has a history of being great to listen to, so typicality isn't a reason to not give this album a fair shot. Clouds, the first single to be released from the album makes an appearance on the tracklist, and is definitely up there in the high points of the entire record.

One of the most instantly noticeable things about Write it on Your Skin is the fact that there's some lovely moments that really shine out from the rest. Sometimes it's an entire song, such as Pick Up Your Broken Heart, which is especially emotive, well put together and, on the whole, a rather special song. Other times, it's specific sections of the songs, such as the intro to title track Write it on Your Skin, which is brilliant.
