Duffy’s just ‘glad to be home’
WELSH chart-topper Duffy said she was glad to be back on home turf during the Relentless Wakestock 2008 festival.
And the singing sensation from Nefyn who shot to stardom earlier this year, told how she would be “just as content” if she sold 2,000 records in her quaint home town on the Lln peninsula. Speaking before wowing the crowd at Abersoch with hits Rockferry, Mercy and Warwick Avenue, Duffy said: “It’s really nice to be back. I don’t really feel like I’ve gone away so coming back is not like a big homecoming in my heart, it’s just like playing a gig at home. I’m sure there will be many more.”
She told how she had caught up with family members in North Wales before hitting the stage.
“It’s a pleasure for me to share my music with people,” she added.
“You don’t have to be globally known. I would be equally as content if I sold 2,000 records in Nefyn. That’s the population of Nefyn – so if everyone there bought my record, I’m sure that would’ve hit the spot for me as well.
“It just so happened that something slightly strange happened along the way.”
Duffy is leading the way in 2008 with the best-selling album and single of the year so far. She’s set to be the first artist this year to reach a million album sales with Rockferry.
